The X-Men: First Class sequel directed by Matthew Vaughn, which Jennifer Lawrence had committed to long before The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has gotten its release date.

You’ll be able to see Lawrence reprising her role as Mystique, with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Magneto and Professor Xavier respectively, on July 18, 2014.

Catching Fire lost director Gary Ross because Lawrence’s agreement for the First Class sequel forced her to have to film the former film first. Ross didn’t like the little amount of time he had to work with.

    WOW, no X-Men fans here is there…. i mean her contract for first class didn’t FORCE her to do the sequel, she AGREED to do it, and as for it being the reason Ross opted out of Catching Fire, that is rubbish, he opted out because Lions-gate wanted to go with a 2013 release, just 1 year after The Hunger Games was released, First Class came out in 2011 and the second isn’t being released until 2014- i think that speaks levels about who has been more compromising. If Lions-gate had left Catching Fire til 2014 then Ross probably would have agreed to do it.
