Michael Fassbender says Magneto is ''more Machiavellian'' in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

The 37-year-old actors stars as a young Erik Lehnsherr, a.k.a. Magneto, in the superhero film which will unite the casts of the original 'X-Men' trilogy with their younger counterparts from 'First Class', and insists his alter-ego has stronger beliefs now.

Talking to BANG Showbiz at the film's premiere in London's Leicester Square on Monday (12.05.14), he said: ''In this film he is Magneto. He is much more singular in his beliefs and methods. He's much more Machiavellian.''

Magneto was at odds with Professor X for decades however with a mutant annihilation on the cards it forces him to form new alliances and Fassbender enjoyed seeing this develop.

He added: ''I just love the character. There is so much history in the character before I have arrived in his shoes. There's so much to play with, he's very complex. I love the relationship he has with Professor X.''

The Hollywood hunk was joined by co-stars Ian McKellen and James McAvoy on the blue carpet.
