Bryan Singer to teach X-Men First Class

Okay, not teach but direct. In any case, we have another X-Men movie with Bryan Singer at the helm to look forward too. Jamie Moss will be writing a new draft of Josh Schwartz script.


The movie looks like it will be loosely based on the recent limited comic series from Marvel, X-Men: First Class. In the comics we learn the origin of the X-Men team, how Xavier located and recruited the young Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, IcemanĀ and Angel. Not sure how they will work in IcemanĀ and Angel since the previous films skewed their origins. I read the comics and enjoyed that they were able to keep much of the same fun element of the original X-Men comics yet update them enough for current (ie, younger) readers to enjoy.

Singer spoke to Ustream at the Avatar Premier this week:

In an article on Variety, Singer stated:

“This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where their relationship took a wrong turn,” Singer said. “There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from ‘X-Men’ will figure into the plot, though I don’t want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain.”

Here’s looking forward to a new X-Men movie and forgetting the third one ever happened!
