It can now be reported Matthew Vaughn is fully on board. Simon Kinberg shares his ideas for the story here.

Awsome! I hope it does focus mainly on Magneto and Xavier like the first film.

Also hoping Magneto stays a redeemable character like he is in the comics.

Can't wait for that.

But I'm sure Avengers, TDKR and TAS will keep me busy this year smile

I haven't read X-Men comics in a looong time but seriously is Magneto THAT integral to all their stories & adventures?

Magneto IMO should've been phased out after X2...I'm seriously getting bored watching him in every X-Men movie regardless of the actor or period of his life.

From all 4 movies so far, we already know what his capabilities are & how the X-Men react to them.

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way about Magneto in the movies at this point as I do about the overuse of Lex Luthor in the Superman films, which I guess was why I enjoyed the Sebastian Shaw performance in First Class much more than I did Mags, aside from the fact it was Kevin Bacon.

Might as well bring in Apocalypse too then if they're ever gonna have him, though I doubt they'll go that route.

You can do Sinister without Apocalypse, and do it well imo.

Yeah, I know he can work pretty good without Apocalypse too, but it would be awesome to have him as well IMO, whether Sinister remains completely loyal to him or secretly works against him after awhile. I've been hoping for some radical live action interpretation of at least one of them (Poccy a little more-so) since The Last Stand or X2, however unlikely that may be.

I do think they did overuse Magneto as the Villain in X-Men 1-3. Just as they overused Wolverine as the main hero Imo.

But for First Class I think it works perfect having Charles and Eric as the main characters. And I hope they don't change that.

As long as they keep Magneto "Redeemable" as long as they can, and have new interesting Villains and Heroes aiding this new trilogy along.

I've been reading some of Claremont's old stuff and would definitely like to see the Mauraders and the X-Factor part of Fall of the Mutants in the theaters at this point. If they made Professor X Death, they could explain away him walking in some of the flashbacks from the first movies.

If they are going to stay the historical route - say they moved into the mid 1970's - things that were in the news then were the rise of apartheid in South Africa. Perfect time to something metaphorical on that in the form of Genosha. The X-Men struggle to end the regime while Magneto and his crew view it as the place to have a mutant homeland.

Perfect. If you read Fall of the Mutants and its Daredevil tie-in, Apocalypse's ship and four horsemen attacking Manhattan in a third movie would fit in perfectly with the 1977 New York Blackout.

You couldn't literally call him by that name in a film. Audiences would laugh: "Mr. Sinister? Is Dr. Evil far behind him?" stick out tongue

You could if you kept his original intended origin.

"Dave Cockrum and I were over ideas and what we were coming towards was a mysterious young boy - apparently an 11-year-old - at the orphanage where Scott (Cyclops) was raised, who turned out to be the secret master of the place. In effect what we were setting up was a guy who was aging over a lifespan of roughly a thousand years. Even though he looked like an 11-year-old, he'd actually been alive since the mid-century at this point - he was actually about 50 [...] He had all the grown up urges. He's growing up in his mind but his body isn't capable of handling it, which makes him quite cranky. And, of course, looking like an 11-year-old, who'd take him seriously in the criminal community? [...] So he built himself an agent in a sense, which was Mister Sinister, that was, in effect, the rationale behind Sinister's rather - for want of a better word - childish or kid-like appearance. The costume... the look... the face... it's what would scare a child. Even when he was designed, he wasn't what you'd expect in a guy like that."
-Chris Claremont quote from Wikipedia.

Hell, Apocalypse was originally supposed to be this guy-

There's still that sequel to Wolverine Origins which I believe comes out next year, not that I'm looking forward to it.

Because you think Wolverine is overrated?

It will be penned by the screenwriter who botched x-men 3, not really looking forward to yet another fox studio screw job of the title I have collected since 1975. so far Iron man 1 2 and the avengers are all very well done, note the studio, it is not fox or Sony. I will be glad when 20th century fox gets the hell out of the way and stops screwing up the X-Men.
