Is Multiple Man Enrolling in Matthew Vaughn’s X-MEN: FIRST CLASS?

Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters may be getting a lot more mutants.  Well, actually just a lot of the same mutant.  Comic Book Movie reports that the character Multiple Man (real name: Jamie Maddrox) will among the students in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class.  For those who can’t already guess, Maddrox’s power is that he can make copies of himself.  He was a villain in X-Men: The Last Stand (played by Eric Dane), which leads me to wonder which “X-Men” movies are canon at this point and which are being ignored.  It’s possible that Maddrox is a pupil who “went bad”, but I continue to advocate that The Last Stand should be forgotten.
