How About You Finish First Class, Before You Even TALK Sequels

What’s with all these movies that come out lately not even hitting the theaters, and apparently the directors, studios and producers already assume they’ve got four or five movies to milk out of whatever franchise they are sucking dry at the moment, Matthew Vaughn is no different when it comes to X-men: First class.

According to an interview he did recently with Total Film:

“First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time,” says Vaughn.

“But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time,” he continues. “That’s the main difference between Begins and The Dark Knight.”

With First Class set in 1962, part two could move on to the late ‘60s – a period Vaughn is keen to x-plore.

“1962 is far more grounded in the world of the ’50s,” he says. “I think it takes about five years for a decade to really start getting its identity, so the fun thing about this for me would be doing [a sequel] in the latter part of the decade, where you’ve got The Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power…”

Wait didn’t some product just tell Empire Magazine a couple of weeks about that Fox was circle jerking all over the possibilities of an X4 and X5 movie? I’m getting superhero’d out this crap is just getting out of control.
