After seeing the Wolverine Origins movie I think it’s safe to say I’m a little bit bearish in this news..
Twentieth Century Fox’s prequel “X-Men: First Class” is set for June 3, 2011, with Matthew Vaughn on board to direct.Moving aggressively, Fox says production will begin this summer, although a cast hasn’t yet been announced.
Bryan Singer, who conceived the story for “First Class” and directed the first two “X-Men” pics, is producing with Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg
I mean when you really think about it, the first X-Men was definitely awesome. The second? It was beyond bad. The third? It held it’s own and was kind of cool. But then the franchise really took a dump with Origins, a film I really though would kick ass. It was just so dumb though that it pissed me off. And the one liners? What are you serious here? And what the hell was Liev Schreiber a vampire? Just don’t get me started on that movie.
So you can excuse my ambivalence about a prequel. Is the potential there? I think it’s safe to say with any X-Men movie the potential is there. Will it deliver? I’m already predicting no. Well, that’s unless Christopher Nolan miraculously steps in to direct the film.
Good luck guys!
P.S. I liked X2 better than X3. Wanted to see what kind of a rise I could get out of you people. Looks like it worked.
