X-Men: The Prequel?
Wolverine and Magneto are already on the way, but can we expect an X-Men origins film, too?
Wolverine and Magneto movies seem to be moving ahead at a fair clip, theres been little to no news on another ensemble X-pic - which is head scratchingly bizarre considering X-Men 3 made a shed-load of cash. I dont think Fox have ever completely ruled out an X-Men 4 but the general belief was that theyve told the story they wanted to with the characters of the first three films. Now, courtesy of Xmenfilms.net, theres further news on possible X-Men features. Turns out if you tap in X-MenOrigins.com into your browser youll get redirected to Foxs homepage. The site speculates that Fox may drop that title in with their Magneto and Wolverine pics as they both deal with the characters in their early years. However, theres a good chance that the domain could also in fact be a precursor to a new X-Men film. Theres been murmurings of Young X-Men and X-Men Year Zero/One ideas going around (my hope would be that they set it in the 60s to bring it inline with the comics and play up the MLK/Malcolm X similarities) so perhaps theres movement on one of those concepts. Incidentally, does anybody else think that Fox should switch their X-prequel creative teams, with Gavin Hood doing Magneto and David Goyer Wolverine? That seems to make a lot more sense to me. source xmenfilms
