Simon Kinberg Writing X-Men: First Class Sequel


This has been a great year for Marvel Studios with “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “X-Men: First Class” — all of which can be considered box office successes. And now, unsurprisingly, all three are on their way to sequels.

We know that “Thor 2” has its director and “Captain America 2” is being planned somewhere after “The Avengers.” Regarding an “X-Men: First Class” sequelSuperHeroHype has revealed that Simon Kinberg is writing the follow-up.

This isn’t the first time Kinberg has been part of an “X-Men” project — he wrote the screenplay along with Zak Penn for “X-Men: The Last Stand” back in 2006 and he was actually a producer for “X-Men: First Class.” Personally, I enjoyed “The Last Stand,” so seeing him writing the sequel to “First Class” is very satisfying — hopefully we’ll see director Matthew Vaughn back for the sequel as well.

Stay tuned for more information about “X-Men: First Class 2.” In the meantime, are you excited about Kinberg writing the sequel? What are you hoping to see in the sequel?

    I am very excited! Personally, I would have liked to have seen Erik and Charles still friend’s in the sequel, and then for things to end between them as they did in the first installment we saw. But I know either way, it is going to turn out amazing, as the first. Maybe even more amazing! We won’t really know, until it comes out.
