While director Matthew Vaughn insists he will not name a new character in the untitled X-Men: First Class sequel, producer Bryan Singer hints that Wolverine may appear in the film.
It is natural that every time a film receives healthy positive reviews, the film will surely have a sequel. Apparently, the same goes for "X-Men: First Class". In recent interviews, director Matthew Vaughn has opened up that he has a few ideas about a sequel for the forthcoming superhero movie.
"I've got some ideas for the opening for the next film," Vaughn spoke to Hit Fix. "I thought it would be fun to open with the Kennedy Assassination, and we reveal that the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto."
"That would explain the physics of it, and we see that he's pissed off because Kennedy took all the credit for saving the world and mutants weren't even mentioned," he continued. "And we could go from there, and I've got some fun ideas about what other mutants to bring in. I don't want to tempt fate, though. If the film's a hit, of course I'd be interested. I really enjoyed making it."
In another chat, the 40-year-old director told Movie Web that he will add only one new character to the sequel. Trying to hide the character, he said, "I won't say who he...I won't say who he or she is! But we will only be bringing one more new character in. Because, I think, as Professor X is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is. It would be nice if I could say something, but I can't, mate!"
However, producer Bryan Singer gave the first indication to IGN that Wolverine may be seen in the untitled X-Men: First Class sequel. "I think there would definitely be room," so he said. "I think it would be a very exciting thing. This universe has to establish itself first, but that would be a very interesting and fun thing."
"X-Men: First Class" centers its story on the beginning of X-Men saga, when Xavier and Magneto were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. They were working together with other mutants to stop Armageddon.
In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men. Having James McAvoy star as young Professor X and Michael Fassbender portray young Magneto, the movie will open in theaters nationwide on June 3.
