X-Men First Class 2 News!
X-Men: First Class hasn’t even hit the theaters, and we already have news about the sequel. In a recent interview with Hitfix, director Matthew Vaughn had this to say:
I’ve got some ideas for the opening for the next film. I thought it would be fun to open with the Kennedy Assassination, and we reveal that the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto. That would explain the physics of it, and we see that he’s pissed off because Kennedy took all the credit for saving the world and mutants weren’t even mentioned. And we could go from there, and I’ve got some fun ideas about what other mutants to bring in.

For those who don’t quite follow this bit. X-Men: First Class examines the origins of the X-Men and is set in the early 1960s. In an interview with Movieweb, he dropped this bit of news:
We will only have one more new character. I won’t say who he…I won’t say who he or she is. But we will only be bringing one more new character in. Because, I think, as Professor X is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is. It would be nice if I could say something, but I can’t, mate.
Bleeding Cool thinks this is a reference to Wolverine.
