‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel Set for January

Posted by , on April 6, 2012 at 9:30 am 

Following a few squabbles between Lionsgate and 20th Century Fox — all of which pertain to the schedule of Jennifer LawrenceTHR says that Matthew Vaughn will begin shooting X-Men: First Class 2 this January. Plans originally called for things to get underway in the fall, but Lionsgate was none too hot on altering Catching Fire‘s schedule for a movie they have, say, zero stake in; something about exercising the option on Lawrence‘s contract came up, Fox balked, and here we are.

With all that backstage arm-flailing over and done with, I’m glad to have some extra confirmation on one of the few superhero movies I hold an interest in seeing. First Class had a lion’s share of issues, sure, but it’s a plenty fun time that, with a sequel, will have its finest aspect — that being Michael Fassbender‘s portrayal of Magneto — get expanded. So, just think of this as a big-budget film that has him playing a mutant. You’ve got to be excited now.

Have you been anticipating a First Class follow-up?
