The X-Men cook up some Bacon*

So it's been reported on the interwebs that Kevin Bacon is in talks to play the big baddie in the next X-Men movie. This makes as much sense as any other news that's come out of this movie. First it's a prequel, then it's a reboot, then it's neither, now it's starting Kevin Bacon. Why not?

Lets fire up the old speculatron and try and figure out what bastardized version of an X-Men villain he'll play. Now keep in mind that Magneto has already been cast and I guess isn't a villain but a good guy, so that helps narrow the field.

Trevor Fitzroy
With the Green hair and super future armour, Trevor Fitzroy is very 1980s-tastic. Still an X-Men from the future sent back as a villain could be a very interesting plot. In fact it's probably to high-brow of a concept for Fox.

The Brood
Call me nuts but I can totally see Fox taking the concept of the brood (alien parasites that mutate their host) and shoehorning it into a Kevin Bacon sized package.


Mesmero was a pretty decent X-men Villain in the 70s and 80s. Basically his whole shtick is mind control. This only works when Xavier isn't around so we can probably rule him out consider Xavier is reportedly one of the leads in this movie.

The only idea worse than shoehorning Apocalypse into a supposed X-Men origin movie, would be having Kevin Bacon play him. If I had to bet money on it, I'd bet everything I own this is what they'll do.

Black Queen
This post needed some T&A.

Sebastian Shaw
Sebastian Shaw seems like he'd be the most logical choice. He leads the Hellfire club and in turn the Hellions who are sort of the "evil" teen x-men. If you wanted to play out the same themes as the first X-Men movie without the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants the Hellfire club would be the way to go.

Black Tom Cassidy
Better known as the guy that bosses the Juggernaut around all the time, Black Tom would be an awful idea. He does have a sweet ass beard, but his power revolves around a magic cane. That's just not cool.

Mastermind is a character so awful I could only find a picture of his toy. Still this is the studio that gave us a Mute Deadpool so pretty much any horrible idea is on the table.

*yes that is an awful pun.
