According to reports, he will play the character ‘Darwin’, a mutant, whose powers are of reactive evolution; meaning he can adapt to any environment he is placed in.

The actor and heartthrob who wore fake dreadlocks to play a baddie vampire in Twilight will be direct in X-Men: First Class by Matthew Vaughn.

Veteran actors James McAvoy and Kevin Bacon will be part of the X-Men action which hits the big screens in June.
