BuzzFeed How Well Did Wizard Magazine Predict The X-Men Movie In 1995?

In January of 1995, Wizard Magazine ran their very first “Casting Call” article, in which the writers and editors fantasy-casted an X-Men film that at that point didn't yet exist, and wouldn't for another five years. Hollywood and the X-Men have both come a long way since they made their choices.
