"X-Men: First Class" is likely to be another "X-Men" prequel movie instead of being a spin-off movie. While talking about "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" on Fox Movie Channel's Life After Film School, producer Lauren Shuler Donner uncovered that the highlight of this movie will be "the first class of Xavier's school, way back when, so it's young Scott, young Jean, young Beast and that'll be really fun."

Providing more explanation on the potential plot, the producer of "The Secret Life of Bees" furthermore elaborated as quoted by Comics Continuum, "I think (the plan) is to follow some of the characters into their own stories, and weave them back into the X-Men world." She then added on what she hopes the movie will become, saying "And hopefully First Class will become its own franchise and we can follow them as they grow up."

In earlier reports, it has been noted that "X-Men: First Class" could focus on either certain X-Men characters like Cyclops in their teenage years or on some of the students attending the mutant school introduced in the "X-Men" movies. While many are still kept under tight wraps for this in-development film, "Gossip Girl" creator and executive producer, Josh Schwartz, has been brought aboard to pen the screenplay. Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will be serving as its producers.

X-Men: First Class has got to include deadpool. It should be based after the happenings of X-Men Origins: Wolverine when deadpools head got sliced off and he came back to life. They shouldnt have sentinals yet but definately have sinister
