X-Men: First Class NOT a Reboot Says Film's Director

Matthew Vaughn confirms that the X-Men prequel fits into the continuity set by the previous movies; and he isn't worried at all that too many mutants will be in it.



Here are a few of the highlights from MTV News' interview with KICK-ASS director Matthew Vaughn regarding his latest project, X-Men: First Class.

Regarding following the X-Men movie legacy:

"I have to give a lot of credit to Bryan Singer, because he came up with a very clever, very interesting way of integrating the characters into recent history — not necessarily too recent, though. I don't want to spoil it for you, but when I read the script that was around in May, I thought, 'This is a really clever idea.'"

Regarding continuity; will X-Men First Class use the same timeline and be "an official, in-continuity prequel"?

"Yeah, I would say absolutely so. You've got Magneto and [Charles] Xavier when they first meet. The backdrop of what's going on in the world when they first meet, it's very interesting. You see them and their relationship develop and play out with this major political event in the background."

Regarding the 'Too Many Mutants' worry:

"In terms of having a lot of mutants, it doesn't feel that busy. I don't feel worried about it. I think it will be really cool to see all these guys doing their stuff. I'm very keen that it has a lot of heart, this movie," he added. "You understand where these characters have come from, and you obviously know where they're going, but to see that very important point of their lives where they're discovering their power and working out their ethical take on what to do with their power — it's a very interesting story to tell. I want it to be a very good film, and I'm working very hard to create one for you."

Will Scott Summers (Cyclops) & Jean Grey (umm, Jean Grey) get more attention in this film with Wolverine out of the way?

"I can't shed any light on that at all. I think that would be giving too much away. You'll just have to wait and see. It's going to be worth it."
