Bryan Singer Details X-Men: First Class
Posted 12.19.09 by Ryan
Just a day after Bryan Singer announced he was returning to the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: First Class, Singer has followed up with more details about the upcoming prequel.
This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where there relationship took a wrong turn. There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from X-Men will figure into the plot, though I don't want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain.
Already a year into development, First Class's first script was written by Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz. But Singer has decided to start from scratch, and finalized a deal with Fox after handing them a detailed treatment that Singer wrote himself.
Whether it's Batman, Lord of the Rings, or Star Trek, if the characters are good, you want to see them on their journey even if you know their destiny. I put myself in the fan's position, and I think this story is something I would want to see, and so will they.
Singer will likely continue working on First Class after his finishes his next project, Jack the Giant Killer.
