20 years ago, the now defunct comic book magazine Wizard played casting director for the (then non-existent) X-Men movie, and they nailed it. Sort of. (They got one right.) Let’s see how their casting holds up in hindsight.
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.
