Bryan Singer Talks About Future "X-Men" Films
Bryan Singer recently sat down with Total Film and discussed the possible future of upcoming "X-Men" films.
"X-Men: First Class" is set in 1962, but the producer commented that there is a possibility that other decades, such as the 70s and 80s, could be explored in future releases. "That's an idea that's been discussed, how the characters go through time. But only to a point - they can't age too fast!"
The film's director, however, has a different idea. "1962 is far more grounded in the world of the '50s. I think it takes about five years for a decade to really start getting its identity, so the fun thing about this for me would be doing [a sequel] in the latter part of the decade, where you've got The [Rolling] Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power…"
Vaughn compared his films to the newer "Batman" series of films saying, "‘First Class' is similar to ‘Batman Begins,' where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time. But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time. That's the main difference between ‘Begins' and ‘The Dark Knight.'"
