Rumors about Kick-Ass's Aaron Johnson joining Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men: First Class have been swirling around the Internet for sometime now. This morning, AICN received an anonymous tip all-but confirming this casting. The tip came from someone calling himself "Son of Rothman". Here is what he had to say:

"I work in the [REDACTED] and we heard today that Matthew Vaughn found his young Cyclops and it shouldn't be any surprise because he worked with him before. It's Aaron Johnson. This is one hundred percent locked at this point. Thought you guys should know."

For the time being, this should be considered a rumor until it is verified and deemed official. In other X-Men: First Class news, our friends over at Collider caught up with Lauren Shuler Donner, who said that the film starts shooting this August in London.
