He could be Mr Sinister, not sure it would work with the timeline though

f*cks yeah, he could be anybody he wants! He is old though, so who is an old villain from back in the day?

Only thing I can think of is a Govermant Agent wanting the X-Men for their mutations.

But hey Kevin Bacon rarely delivers a bad performane so I say sounds good to me.

I totally approve this... can never have too much Bacon

Kevin as Mr. Sinister ?

Why not Sebastian Shaw ?

Fascinating. This could be good as long as he does the Footloose dance in one scene.

Monash-would love to see Sinister but yea don't think it would work ...

Monash: GREAT CALL on Mr. Sinister! Give Bacon the pale face and you've got a perfect match. Fox has already shown that it doesn't give a sh*t about the X-Men timeline so it just might work. I was completely against this film a while ago but the casting is starting to grow on me. Bacon's the man!

Since Cable is supposedly involved and they don't care about continuity, sure Sinister works. So does Apocalypse. I just hope they don't decide to create a new villain like they did with "Wolverine" 2 and 4.

If Bacon is in this movie then its ruined. No one gets on my nerves like Kevin f*cking Bacon... Footloose motherf*cker.

Mr. Sinister would be cool. Sinister doesn't have to jibe with any particular timeline. He's been using his alter ego Nathaniel Essex for a couple hundred years.
But I'd rather see him play Sebastian Shaw.

His weapon would be that wang of his in "wild things" No wonder Kyra Sedrick walks funny. Lol.

Just let him go looking like what he does in that picture and he would be scary enough for me

on July 10th, 2010 at 1:40:09 PM

are you talking about Stryker?
SaulSilver writes:

Excellent Casting. No one does cold psycho/sociopath quite like the Bacon. He could easily pull of Sinister or even the Crazy Scientist guy who created the Sentinels to hunt Mutants.
Are they rebooting the series without even telling people? Sure as hell seems that way.
SaulSilver writes:
on July 10th, 2010 at 2:04:03 PM

Rabid...I think he's referring to how they heavily Modified Stryker into pretty much a different character. The only things they kept from Comics Stryker is the name, his Son & his Hatred for Mutantkind.

Well, there had to be a movie eventually where a person gained powers after being molested. Looks like Mr. Bacon will be that molester.


Sounds awful I know but look at the guy's filmography. Great stuff, but at least 2 instances of being a character who's a pedo (Sleepers and The Woodsman).

@ Monash. I was thinking that same thing when I read this headline. Never thought about the timeline, but I think him as Mr. Sinister would be perfect.

Kevin Bacon, one of the only actors that plays both good guys and bad guys naturally. I actually like his bad guy roles better because he plays them with such malicious indifference... evil bastard.

Since there's going to be Banshee, this makes the most sense.
