Superhero Hype! caught up with X-MEN: FIRST CLASS 2 writer and producer Simon Kinberg at this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con; he gave some minor details about the developing film, which begins filming early next year for a July 18, 2014 release.
“I’m not allowed to even breathe a word of any sort of details,” says Kinberg, “but I can say that the things that we thought worked well in ‘First Class’ were the characters, especially the four or five lead characters. The Charles-Erik relationship was obviously incredibly resonant and James and Michael did such an amazing job as those characters. Jen Lawrence and Nick Hoult, that’s a really interesting relationship between Raven and Hank, so we’re really going to be focusing on character and personally I really liked the period aspect of ‘First Class’ so we may well do that.”
Kinberg says the “X-Men” crew are very aware of continuity issues with the original trilogy…
“…we are constructing it with ‘X1-3′ in mind. There may be some places where we don’t line up perfectly but it is something we are very aware of and want to be respectful of and the people who are responsible for those movies–Lauren Schuler-Donner, Bryan Singer and Fox–are all involved.”
