He’s risen to a new level of popularity over the past year, and Michael Fassbender was looking fine at the 2012 London Film Critics’ Circle Awards tonight (January 19).
The “Inglourious Basterds” star showed up at the BFI Southbank sporting a classic black suit and tie as he hobnobbed with fellow celebrities including his "Shame" co-star Carey Mulligan.
As for the upcoming sequel to his film “X Men: First Class,” Michael chatted about the possible directions the story could take.
“You know what’s interesting about Magneto and Professor X from the comic books as well, is there’s such a complexity to their relationship. It’s not just like clear-cut enemies; they’re best friends as well. In the comic books, even after they’ve had this sort of rift, Professor X asks Magneto to come back and look after the students at certain points... I think there’s always that complexity in their relationship and we want to keep that alive as possible, because that’s I think a really interesting thing - the conflict there.”
