Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I actually wish that Marvel Studios bought the Fantastic Four rights and did a reboot. Just so we could get a scene between Reed and Tony

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Good news that they seem eager and willing to do a sequel. It still just feel like lip service to some degree though. I want to hear of contracts signed, that would give me a better sense of certainty.

Count me with those who feel like FOX could manage the Marvel properties they have into a type of shared universe. It doesn't have to be a lead up to some big event, ala The Avengers, just enough nods to know they are all operating in the same world.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

We usually never hear about contracts, we hear about green lights. I agree that we probably won't see First Class 2 until 2014 at the earliest. Everyone is mostly busy right now. Vaughn still continues to eye his next project which will most likely be another Mark Millar adaptation. Singer is busy with "Jack the Giant Killer" and his "Battlestar Galactica" project. James McAvoy is an established star with a lot of projects on the go...Michael Fassbender has become a superstar. The only reason that this was "rushed" is because of Bryan Singer getting the ball rolling in the first place. He galvanized everyone with his treatment. It's all about getting that story together. Once they do that things will start moving again. There's no real rush for this one if they want to do it right.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Fassbender and McAvoy have both mentioned they are signed for 2 sequels, I don't know about everyone else. I hope there is indeed at least a first round script being worked on, then if Vaughn and Goldman can return for another polish and be able to take some more time instead of the rush!

Fassbender is only committed to one project next year, 12 Years a Slave with McQueen again. Lots of rumors of other things, but maybe he is keeping his calendar clear for a reason? I'm more concerned with Lawrence and Hunger Games becoming an issue.

Fassbender has thus far been able to stick to his guns in his film decisions, going with smaller films for less because he believes in them and the people or passing on huge things because he didn't think they held much for him. Although I think his declining the Hobbit was two fold, it was a small part and he couldn't commit to their schedule, hopefully I suspect because of a window for X-Men.

Right now, I'm more concerned with the Golden Globe noms next week!

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

We know there's a first draft being written...it was reported earlier in the thread Simon Kinberg was writing it. This is still in the very early development stages right now. As I've said from the start we probably won't hear anything definitive until next year.

It was more or less a joke when I wrote it, but now I've suddenly become excited about a 60's Era Marvel Movie Universe with sequels to X-MEN FIRST CLASS and a re-launched FANTASTIC FOUR back in it's proper space-race context.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Supposedly he was up for Bard. I can live with him not being Bard so long as it doesn't become an extended Legolas for no reason.

A Script in development is not first draft to me. It means people talking about it and making their own treatments and wasting a lot of time. To me a first draft means they have an entire plot in place and are decided on who they want and what is going to happen, then the fleshing begins. Remember those other two dudes who had credit for something done really early?

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

A first draft still means it is being worked on and developed. I never said it was finished. First Class had over six writers on it, and multiple attempts before it became the movie we all know and love. The important thing is that Fox seems interested in developing it and some progress is happening. Again we most likely won't have any further definitive word on the sequel until next year sometime. I'd hardly call it wasting time.

'zactly...Shows serious intent to do a sequel. It's now up to the developers to present a story that makes the $$$ want to commission the sequel
