X-Men: First Class 2 Release date Set

July 18th...

X-Men: First Class 2 (not the official title) will hit U.S. theaters on July 18th, 2014 – just a week short of a year after the next X-Men sequel due to arrive in theaters, The Wolverine. Shooting on First Class 2 is slated to get underway by January 2013, with the majority of the First Class main cast onboard to return. Matthew Vaughn will once again be holding the directorial reins, working from a script he supervised, in collaboration with his go-to writing partner, Jane Goldman, and screenwriter Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes). The original First Class was a notoriously rushed production; it will be interesting to see what Vaughn can do with ample time to work – considering how well he did with so little time to create.

Thanks to Hanso for the Update!

Is Fox aiming to do an X-Men movie a year now?

Seriously though, I am looking forward to this.  I know the movies deviate greatly from the comics (I've been an X-Men fan since '88) but they are a fun ride taken on their own merits.  Well, for the most part.  I won't rehash the hate for some of the films I will simply state that I own all of them on DVD and am looking forward to this more than I am The Wolverine.

 I'm ready to see an X-Men movie the way it should have been done from the start.  They should have learned from the other Marvel big hits by now.

I guess I'm in the minority when I say I like that they run in a different direction with some of these comic book titles. Personally, the storylines that I read in the 80s and 90s I really don't want to see rehashed on the big screen. I can easily pull out my collection a re-read them. What I want is new twists, story archs, and angles that I haven't already read. So keep it up X-Men First Class, really enjoyed the first film and am very curious as to where they will go with the next.

Wow! From May 2013 to July 2014 will be very busy for Marvel movies. 5 Marvel movies in a span of 14 months.

X-men First Class 2 July 2014

I love Mathew Vaughn and great casting for Prof X and Magneto but I still think this franchise should have been rebooted. Again, X-men First Class was a good superhero film but not a good X-men film.

Iceknight, I'm in that Minority with you... Although it's a minority that allows these films to continuously be profitable...hmmm, maybe we're not in the minority after all.

I cannot, try as I may, see how people are upset that these films aren't word for word interpretations of the comics. Just like The Walking Dead, I'm glad these film are different, so that I DON'T know what to expect.

The characters stay true to their nature, what they would do if they were in these situations.... Thats what matters...

I LOVE X-1, X-2, X-3 is OK, and X-men FC was FANTASTIC!

Krakken, there's really not much more to mine, and the most interesting ad compelling part of X-men is the persecusion by humans. That IS why it has resonated among fans for so long... not because of space adventures...

gauleyboy, you touched on something that has always irked me about people who get upset over film adapations of any novel or comic book.  They love to complain over how well a movie follows the events of its source material, and if it's radically different, they bash the movie.  I think that kind of logic is insipidly stupid.

It's IMPOSSIBLE for a 2 hour movie to adequately follow a storyline in a 300-page novel without major changes to fit the medium.  It's just as difficult to have a 2 hour film closely follow events in a multi-part storyline featured in a comic book (e.g. the Dark Phoenix saga).  I still thought X3 was crap, but even if it had been a direct adaptation of the Dark Phoenix saga as it was supposed to be before Bryan Singer bailed, it would've been radically different from the comic book storyline.

I absolutely loved X-Men: First Class, and I thought it was the best X-Men film so far.  If it were up to me, I would've started off the entire X-Men franchise with the original team featured in the comic books and introduce Wolverine late in the movie to set up part 2.  But that's just me.  I'm still looking forward to Second Class (or whatever it'll be titled) and hope it's a successful sequel.
