This is cool news, indeed. Deadline is reporting that Matthew Vaughn has signed on the line that is dotted for the sequel to X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, and Bryan Singer will once again produce, with Simon Kinberg on script duties. This would be a continuation of the story began in FIRST CLASS, and I'd imagine Michael Fassbender and James MacAvoy would return to their roles as Magneto and Professor X, respectively.
I loved the first movie, and I hope this is a fresh continuation of that franchise. I wonder if this film will dive into the 1970s like FIRST CLASS did into the 1960s... Magneto with platform shoes, perhaps? Professor X with a pornstache? The mind boggles. I'm very happy that Fox liked the original enough to continue with it and I can't wait to see it.
