Michael Jackson: Can YOU guess which X-Men movie part the King of Pop wanted to play?

Michael Jackson had X-Men ambitions. Now I'm trying to imagine Michael Jackson in the part.

The singer had a proposal for Singer.

He reportedly walked into Fox's offices wearing sunglasses and refusing to shake any hands, but was keen to be given the opportunity to take on the role of Charles Xavier on the big screen. "'I said to him, 'Do you know Xavier is an older white guy?". 'And Michael said, 'Oh yeah.

A new report published this week by the Hollywood Reporter paints a dark picture of the director in which he made little effort to reign in his erratic behaviour during the production of the early X-Men films, something X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner described as being a result of the status he enjoyed at the time.

As part of his sales pitch, Jackson played the team an "elaborate presentation complete with the short film Ghosts", a 40-minute mini-movie Jackson made in collaboration with makeup master Stan Winston and horror author Stephen King.

Of course, Jackson wasn't the only famous face who wanted in on the film.

Ghosts isn't Jackson's only acting credit. He also appeared as the Scarecrow in the 1978 musical The Wiz and the 1986 sci-fiction short Captain EO, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and shown at Disney theme parks.

The payments would be $1,200 per adult for those with adjusted gross incomes of up to $75,000. Democrats in the House-passed HEROES Act wanted to expand the $1,200 payments to dependents.

As the franchise grew more successful, it protected Singer from any scrutiny or accountability. Ultimately, Star Trek: The Next Generation's Patrick Stewart was chosen to play the character, appearing in seven films in the franchise, most recently in 2017's Logan.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jackson was never a serious contender for the Professor X role. Years later, and after years of rumours of Singer allegedly sexually abusing a number of young men, a damning Atlantic report was released in which four men detailed their personal experiences with the director. He was acquitted in that case. After Jackson's death, two other men came forward and said Jackson had abused them when they were children, allegations covered in the 2019 film Leaving Neverland. Instead, Fox chose X-Men fans' top choice for the role, Patrick Stewart, who went on to play Xavier for the next 17 years.

The King of Pop's nephew Taj Jackson told Popcorn Planet: "It was Marvel and I remember that".

X-Men, which was both a critical and box-office hit back in 2000, came out before the formation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it is known today, however the film was a groundbreaking in its portrayal of mutants as misunderstood misfits of society.

"So it was not only Spider-Man [he wanted to buy]".
