Looks like FOX just struck while the iron was hot. As previously reported through our site, Alice Eve and Kevin Pennington were both signed on with Marvel Studios on a retainer basis. Earlier this week, FOX signed Eve for their X-Men: First Class film diminishing Marvels chances to use the British beauty. We just learned that FOX has made a deal for Kevin Pennington that is just waiting to be signed (has not happened yet). We can’t confirm at this point the details of the deal that has been made to the young actor but it’s being said that it’s presumably for the role of James Madrox a.k.a. Multiple Man in the X-Men: First Class film. Multiple Man was previously portrayed by Eric Dane in X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Will Pennington be playing a younger version of him for FOX? We will update this article once more details are available.
