Fans have eagerly been waiting more news on the X-Men sequel and some exciting news has finally arrived! SuperHeroHype is now reporting that Simon Kinberg would be writing the anticipated sequel to X-Men: First Class!

Super Hero Hype reports:

[We have] learned that Simon Kinberg is writing the sequel to 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: First Class, which has earned over $350 million since opening in theaters this June.

Kinberg already has a background in the franchise, serving as Producer on X-Men: First Class as well as writing the script for X-Men: The Last Stand, as well as numerous other films including Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Sherlock Holmes.

As production on the film and its script are still in the early stages, details on the project remain mostly unknown. Whether director Matthew Vaughn or any of the previous cast will return has yet to be announced, although due to the success of X-Men: First Class, Fox will try to bring back as many of the cast and crew as possible.

We do find it a bit odd that that they are bringing a different writer on board. What are your thoughts on Kinberg writing the sequel?

    This is great, now we know even more surely that a sequel is, in fact, gonna get made…

    Hopefully they’ll use the 1st one as a spring board to get to new heights. Maybe even to the heights of The Dark Knight.

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it Fox. They had no faith in the first one, and it did well. Now they realize they have a hit on their hands, they’re going to screw it up.

    The only good movie on Kinberg profile, so far, is Sherlock Holmes.

    I just hope he’s not writing it alone, Jane Goldman needs to be involved again.  We do not need another The Last Stand on our hands.
