Mathew Vaughn Reveals His Idea For An <i>X-Men: First Class</i> Sequel

Speaking to Hitfix, the director of X-Men: First Class reveals that he is very much looking forward to getting to work on a sequel, and even speaks about how he may open the film..

In an interview over at HitFix, Vaughn reveals a possible opening scene for a sequel to his current X-Men movie..

When asked if he would be willing to return for a sequel with this cast..

"Yeah, definitely. I really loved working with them, and with Michael [Fassbender] and James [McAvoy], the chemistry was really lovely. 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. I don't want to tempt fate, though. If the film's a hit, of course I'd be interested. I really enjoyed making it."

Well, if the audiences likes it as much as the reviewers have I wouldn't worry about a demand for a sequel anyway. Another interesting tidbit from the interview is Vaughn discussing his decision to have Sebastian Shaw(Kevin Bacon) in slightly less over the top attire than his comic book counterpart sports..

"He was the villain… no, the character, that I was most afraid of. I kept thinking, 'Are we going to pull Shaw off?' And the comic book version made me nervous, and I would argue with Lauren [Shuler-Donner] about it, and she'd say, 'He must have the ponytail and the cravat.' And I would argue, 'He is going to look like an Austin Powers villain, Lauren. We cannot do that. I have to make the movie work, and Kevin Bacon with a ponytail and a cravat dressed as an 18th-century fop will look ridiculous.'"

So for those wondering why Bacon didn't look like Shaw from the comic(although I would have thought it was obvious myself:), there you go! But what do you think of Vaughn's idea for the sequel set up? There is much more from him over at Hitfix so be sure to click the link below to check it out.
