It’s already time to start talking about a First Class sequel and James McAvoy, who plays the young Charles Xavier, had some thoughts on the film.
James McAvoy recently sat down with Total Film to talk a tiny bit about X-Men: First Class. Though he didn’t give details about what would actually be happening in the sequel, he does offer a point-of-view regarding the new series.
When asked if he would be up for a sequel, McAvoy says:
“I’d be up for it. But the truth is I’m contractually obliged to be up for it because they made us all sign multiple picture deals!”
When asked if he knows where the story will go for the second film:
“I’ve spoken to Matthew [Vaughn] about ideas, but I can’t tell you what they are because they may or may not be the story. One thing I liked about our one was that it was different from the other three films where the X-Men are the good guys, Wolverine’s figuring out who he is and Magneto is the bad guy. This was a completely different thing. Magneto wasn’t a bad guy, we were friends. We’re now set up to go back to the way the other movies are, so we’ve got to try to be cleverer than that.”
This certainly sounds interesting. We’re sure Matthew Vaughn has an idea as to where the next movie is going to go. What kinds of things would you like to see in the First Class sequel?
