The latest issue of Empire Magazine has a three-cover special edition all about X-Men First Class, as they were the only print magazine allowed on the set. Dark Horizons got their hands on the issue and inside there are some quotes from Producer Lauren Shuler Donner about two more sequels to the main X-Men series:
“We took the treatment to Fox and they love itâ€¦ And X4 leads into X5.”
How could it work? Well if you watched X3 until after the credits, Professor X is alive and right before the credits Magneto’s powers are returning. Cyclops’ body was never really found, and as the X-Men comics have shown over the last decade; you don’t need Jean Grey around.
But what could they have come up with to wash the taste of X3 out of fans mouths? We’ll just have to wait and see.
