Lauren Shuler Donner is quite the quotable woman today in the CBM community. Here are a few more X-Men tidbits that she gave in an interview with Crave Online.

For future films in the franchise, will you keep doing the historical thing or will you go back to the more modern era anytime soon?

Lauren Shuler Donner - Well, if we were going to sequelize this and keep on going, we would stay in the next [time] period. Probably we’d go to the 70’s.


‘X-Men: First Class.’ The best ‘X-Men’ movie so far. I think so, other people think so. A lot of people didn’t think the last two were good. Was there a concerted effort to do something differently with ‘X-Men: First Class,’ besides obviously the period change?

Lauren Shuler Donner - Yeah. Every time we make a movie we try to make it a little bit different, so that you’re not seeing the same thing over and over again. But yes, you know, we were aware that… I wasn’t too pleased with those movies. We just wanted to make something that was a fan-pleaser. There are many elements that go into making a movie, and not all of them came together. But in this one, yes, we made a concerted effort to reinvent it.


Was it easy getting Matthew Vaughn back? He was on ‘X-Men 3’ for a little while, but it didn’t happen. Did he have to be convinced?

Lauren Shuler Donner - Well, this time we had a really good script! And it was sort of the right place at the right time, you know, and as I said, Bryan [Singer] said, “Hey, look at the script. I can’t do it. Read it.” And Matthew said he read the script, hoping he’d hate it. [Laughs.] And he called up Bryan and said, “I like it!” And that was it! Everybody made up and said, hey, let’s do it. And by the way, Matthew also directed Kick-Ass, which was so good…


Headed to the 70's! Alright! So we'll have Rogue in bellbottoms. Sweet! What is it that you say? You can't have her in the sequel cause it would screw up the continuity? Oh, please! If the producers don't care about continuity then I guess I'm not supposed to either, lol.

I'll tell you what, I hope their next mission is to fight Hyper-inflation and gasoline prices. Those two were a nightmare back in the day. I'd love to see a groovy Juggernaut rocking some flower print shirts.

Which political event of the 70's should be included in the sequel?
