‘X-Men: First Class’ is getting a sequel

X-Men: First Class

In a year that has seen The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises, we almost forgot that X-Men: First Class was a modern superhero movie that actually did pretty well both critically and commercially. So of course, it’s getting a sequel, which I hope prominently features a scene where January Jones‘ Emma Frost is shot out of a cannon into the sun within the first five minutes. Via HuffPo reports:

“It’s extraordinarily ambitious,” Kinberg told Collider. “It is unlike the other X-Men movies and yet very much a celebration of the X-Men movies.” The plot of the sequel still remains vague, but here’s a little of what we do know. In February, Kinberg told MTV that the film will likely involve a lot more Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender). “That’s what was so cool about the first one and what we want to continue,” Kinberg said about the comic book villain’s tortured origins. “Magneto becomes the villain ultimately of the franchise but he’s a much more complicated character as a young man. He’s someone you sympathize with, you care about you root for even though might not necessarily agree with his methods, you understand his philosophy.”
