X-Men Origins: Magneto
David Goyer has this to say about the tentatively scehduled for 2009 movie about master of magnetism: "I'm writing a new version of 'The Invisible Man' for Universal. I'm in the process of doing ['Invisible Man'] right now, and I'm working with some conceptual artists in tandem with writing the script. I'm actually working with one of the artists from 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight.' So it could be 'Magneto,' or it could be 'The Invisible Man' next."
