Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

I know that and about X2. But I could swear I read that he was involved in at least the early stages of First Class. I'd have to do some looking.

Edit:

Here we go!

After I poked around a bit, Penn admitted that he was originally signed on to write and direct a "young X-Men film," but that's recently changed. Says Penn, "The original idea was to have me do a young X-Men spin-off, a spin-off of the young X-Men characters. But someone came up with a pretty interesting idea which I can't discuss. I was pretty taken by it, as was the studio. I have to give him credit, it was this guy who worked with me named Mike Chamoy -- he worked a lot with me on X3. He came up with how to do a young X-Men movie which is not what you'd expect. We'll see; I still have to talk to Fox, set the story down ... and then it will take a year -- maybe two years -- to get together. Put it this way, if you agree to do one of the X-Men movies, it could end up happening four or five years down the line. Which is fine with me; it's just not my focus right now."
Looks like he'd been in talks to do FC but it fell through. Well... they certainly traded up. Didn't they?
