Bryan Singer may direct X-Men: First Class

Posted by LiveFor on December 17, 2009

On the Official Avatar Myspace Site, director Bryan Singer (X-Men) dropped a major announcement about one of his next projects.

“I just yesterday signed a deal to do an X-Men: First Class origins picture, which is kind of cool. I’m very excited.”

X-Men: First Class is expected to inject a next-gen sensibility into the superhero series. – The studio has been leaning toward using the younger characters introduced in the previous films in future installments –teenagers with powers taught at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.

They will most likely draw from elements of the Marvel Comic of the same name, launched in 2006, and enlist such characters as Iceman, Rogue, Angel, Colossus, Jubilee and Shadowcat, who have appeared prominently or made cameos in previous films.

To be honesy I am just not sure whether I am excited about the First Class films and the fact Singer is returning. I was so let down with Superman Returns and watching X-Men and X-Men 2 I just feel they have dated quite a bit plus the stories they tell are so brief it just makes me go “meh!”

I would have liked to see a new director with a fresh take on the subject matter – imagine Edgar Wright or Pierre Morel’s take on an X-Men film.
