With all the hooplah surrounding X-Men Origins: Wolverine it looks like 20th Century Fox has re-opened the (comic) books to see what other X-Men can make their way to the silverscreen. What a crazy happenstance, as there is an entire lot of them with X-Men: First Class.
X-Men: First Class Movie?
X-Men: First Class recently popped up as a listing over at Production Weekly, suggesting that 20th Century Fox is rummaging through their bag of tricks once again. The good people at SHH did some investigating and have discovered that the website X-MenFirstClass.Com forwards directly to FoxMovies.Com.
For those of you who have never heard of X-Men: First Class, the comic had a small run with only eight issues published during its mini-series. Marvel provides this official synopsis:
For millions of years, mankind’s place on Earth was unchallenged – until five young people paved the way for a new kind of human. While students at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Iceman taught the world what it meant to be X-Men. These are the hidden stories of the team that laid the foundation of a mutant dynasty!
X-Men: First Class
Could be interesting, but let's wait on some sort of confirmation before we really start predicting which way this project will go.
