20th Century Fox is possibly moving forward with “X-Men: First Class” sequels. Following the release of the Matthew Vaughn-directed film, the studio is said “discussing sequels internally” although there is no formal announcement.
According to Conventry Telegraph, Fox is interested in making follow-ups to the “X-Men” prequel since executives are pleased with the movie’s achievement. The film has earned $335 worldwide after being debuted about a month ago.
Although this James McAvoy starrer did not reach the heights of “X-Men 2”, “X-Men: The Last Stand” or “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, Fox distribution executive Chris Aronso has said the studio achieved its goal of opening the prequel at about the same haul as the original “X-Men” film. Aronso additionally stated at that time, “This is just an excellent start in launching a brand new chapter of the ‘X-Men’ franchise.”
Beside Fox, Matthew Vaughn has shown interest in making the follow-ups. The “Kick-Ass” helmer has had an idea to open an untitled X-Men: First Class sequel with “the Kennedy Assassination” in which “the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto.” He also planned to bring one more new character in the movie.
