Color me not at all shocked.

In today’s world of big budget franchises, sequel talks are starting to come earlier and earlier, and now, it’s X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ turn. With talks surrounding a possible fourth and fifth film in the X-MEN proper franchise already underway, FIRST CLASS is also looking to get another film, and according to producer Bryan Singer, it may bring us to a couple of new decades.

Total Film recently chatted with Singer, who revealed that, an idea that has been discussed is bringing the franchise into the ‘70s and ‘80s, saying that the only snag is that “they [the characters] can’t age too fast.”  Director Matthew Vaughn goes on to say that “FIRST CLASS is similar to BATMAN BEGINS, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time…but with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time.”

Now, while proper sequel talks have yet to truly begin, if the film is as solid as the trailers have hinted at the film being, it may not be too long. The film hits on June 3, so if it can make the proper amount of cash from the box office, a sequel should follow relatively close. When a film like GREEN LANTERN can get a sequel greenlit prior to its release, this film should ultimately be no different.
