So do we know which roles Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans are playing in First Class?
My thought as well if FOX wants to get this movie out quickly as possible AKA a hacked and rushed job.
90 minute rush job for summer.
Vaughn is back in the running! Apparently he's the frontrunner.
Wait's five minutes for counter article saying Vaughn is off again.
I loved Kick Ass so I definitely hope he takes it.
Chloe Moretz as an ass-kicking Jean Grey?
i know they're gonna go young, but i hope they don't go that young.
And a 2011 release date...
So Daniel Craig for Erik Lansherr and Paul Bettany for Charles Xavier?
Hell yeah! I'm stoked. Matthew Vaughn AND Bryan Singer working on the same film?
It's too good to be true.
Gonna need both to bang out a good film by 2011.
I wouldn't worry too much...just look at it as a fresh new X-Men film non-related to any of the other films.
Should be ok...but 2011??? That is like a year...can they do it???
Well, this is supposed to be a prequel to Singer's films, so I have no idea how they are going to do that and still make it work. Besides, even in the original First Class comic-book, Wolverine was nowhere to be found, so not only does it break film continuity, it breaks comic-book continuity as well.
Supposedly the script is locked, since Singer had developed it with writer Jamie Moss for some time, so Vaughn can head right into pre-production. I would be skeptical, but Vaughn has worked with 20th Century Fox on an X-Men movie before so he knows the ruthless studio politics that goes on there, since he pulled out before, so I would imagine if he had signed on, realizing the release date and the time schedule, he would be okay with it.
I have total faith in Vaughn as a director after Layer Cake and Kick-Ass, so I'm sold.
They've made four Wolverine movies already. This would be the fifth!
I am guessing the studio is behind this more so than Singer.
I had a feeling they'd work in the young mutants Wolverine helped free.
God forbid we have a movie that DOESN'T involve Wolverine in some way.
Xavier- This is a table from Canada with three distinct claw marks.
Oh for fuck's sake, just do a goddamn reboot or something
And this time, use other major villains than Magneto. Like Mr Sinister or the Hellfire Club.
^ Why would they use other villains than Magneto since the core story of "X-Men The First Stand" is the falling out of their friendship? I assume the film will climax with the X-Men first encountering and stopping Magneto...as for the Wolverine rumor it's just a rumor and it's possible he could appear in an unrelated to the plot cameo. I'm excited about this. Can't wait to start hearing casting news. It'll be up against "Green Lantern". Fox must be really confident about this project...
