Underneath the avalanche of Star Wars related news that was this week, there has been another news item to get excited about. Maybe not quite the same level as the megatonne of a third Star Wars trilogy being announced along with the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, but this is still good to hear.Earlier in the week we reported that Matthew Vaughn has called it a day on the sequel to his previous film ‘X-Men: First Class’, and that he would be moving on to a new project. Disappointing to hear but the best possible replacement has been signed and that person is Bryan Singer.
Needing little introduction Singer was involved in Vaughn’s X-film, but most notably he started the entire series with X-Men 1 and the sensational X-Men 2.
X-Men: First Class 2, or otherwise known as X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy back as Magento and Professor X, along with Jennifer Lawrence who’s star power has risen considerably since the previous X-film.
The new film is scheduled for a mid-2014 release.
