Bryan Singer and Matthew Vaughn talk sequels for X-Men: First Class

04.13.2011

According to X-MEN: FIRST CLASS helmer Matthew Vaughn, the end of his film sets it up for a sequel, which in his words will be, “even more fun”.

Vaughn continues and talks about how is film is like Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, “First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time. But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time. That’s the main difference between Begins and The Dark Knight.”

With FIRST CLASS set in 1962, the second installment might move to the late 60s. The director is really into exploring that time frame, “1962 is far more grounded in the world of the ’50s. I think it takes about five years for a decade to really start getting its identity, so the fun thing about this for me would be doing [a sequel] in the latter part of the decade, where you’ve got The Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power…” The planned trilogy might even have the X-Men brave the 70s and 80s. But not so fast says producer Bryan Singer, “That’s an idea that’s been discussed. How the characters go through time. But only to a point – they can’t age too fast!”

The young Charles Xavier, James McAvoy chimed in on how he'd like to see his character get “really messed up” in the sequels, “In First Class he uses Cerebro for the first time and maybe it unlocks something in his head – maybe he can’t keep the voices out or something. So in the second movie his journey could be about getting himself out of a mess. And then in the third movie he become… Patrick Stewart!”

Extra tidbit..

Amazing how that 60 second clip could ignite such vivid nostalgia....I miss being a kid sometimes.

But then I eat out my girlfriend and remember how good it is to be an adult....

An ellipsis DOESN'T indicate sarcasm. An ellipsis is a mark or series of marks that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word in the original text. An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought, or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence. When placed at the end of a sentence, the ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy longing. The ellipsis calls for a slight pause in speech.

An ellipsis at the end of a sentence doesn't mean dick, it really doesn't mean one is "joking" or "kidding"

Also, it was a pretty inappropriate comment to make in the first place.

I just find it odd you got so defensive about it.

A) I was not bragging. Believe it or not, there are many people dating, and many have sex. It's incredibly common. I didn't say "my hot swimsuit model girlfriend." That would be bragging.

B) There is an ellipsis at the end of the sentence...what did you think that indicacted? Apparently you thought that meant I was bragging and dead serious.

You do realize there was no way for me to know you're joking since I read it and I don't know you personally, right? You didn't add a smiley face or anything close to that so I thought you were serious and trying to be cool. Understand?

It's a joke you fool. Way to be dead serious and probably no fun to be around in real life.

Though it also isn't such a stretch of the imagination that someone has sex with their girlfriend. Just because you may be afraid to speak to females, doesn't mean everyone is.

Says a head of lettuce. You know, I'm not sure how to insult a vegetable. So...yeah. Hate the film all you want, you don't have to see it. See the Spider-man reboot instead. That's the one I'm more upset about personally. At least the X-Men are trying to be original.

I hope First Class is great, but I don't want a sequel. I mean really, at this rate we'll have more non x-men films (i.e. first class prequels and solo Wolverine films), than actual x-men films, and that's not right. I want to see my favorite group of superhero mutants as a team, not these constant prequels that just mess up the continuity. And X3 messed things up so I can't say I'm excited for X-men 4. I say it's time to go back to basics and reboot the franchise using the classic x-men

After having watched the international trailer couple of days ago, I have high hope for this movie. Extra tidbit: that is probably the best X-Men animation yet. Classic 90s action/cheesy cartoon.

If X-Men First Class doesn't crap all over Batman Begins, I'll donate $1,000 to charity. Seriously.

This new trilogy is on track to surpass the original. Who would've thought that? There's no way they don't introduce Scott and Jean in the sequel.

I hope this flick was set up for a sequel, considering it's a prequel and leads into the stories of 3 other movies! Sweet logic Vaughn

Why do I get the sense that this is a backdoor reboot to the franchise.

Saw that coming

I was pretty damn sure they were gonna go this route except I thought they'd go straight into the 70's next then the 80's. However I think they should abandon the whole prequel route and embrace the the idea of multiple timelines or at the very least a reboot so a different take can be done on some characters who had lame representation in the other films (Rogue, Gambit, Storm, Beast, Angel). Maybe X4 and X5 will address that but I've been promised that before.

I'm cool with it

As long as they give the actual members of first class some love. Especially Cyclops - he has been dicked over by every X-Men movie to date.

I dunno, I always thought Cyclops was a bit of a straight-laced douche in the comics who made all the other characters so much cooler by comparison.

My one exception was Astonishing X-Men, but that was probably largely down to him nailing Emma Frost...

Surprise surprise...

Not so long ago it was announced (think I read it on joblo if I remember correctly) that Fox was moving ahead with X-Men 4 AND 5 that were gonna take place in the "present day" AFTER X-Men 3.

And now this. Make up your mind Fox. Oh, actually the box office revenues will make it up for them. If First Class bombs that will be it for the X-Men (for a while, anyway) and if not well..if not, I say First Class -vs- X-Men 4: FIGHT!

X-MEN is getting a prequel trilogy? Lets just hope it turns out better than the last prequel trilogy.
