Singer claims ‘First Class’ will supersede ‘Magneto’
Bryan Singer has claimed that his X-Men: First Class film will replace the planned Magneto prequel.
The director who was recently confirmed for the picture has suggeste that his project’s overlap with Magneto could mean that the Magneto movie may get put on the back-burner:
“This story would probably utilise some of the Magneto story because it deals with a young Magneto, so it might supersede that because this would explore that relationship between a young energetic professor and a disenfranchised victim of the Holocaust,” Singer explained.
The filmmaker went on to add that he does not believe another X-Men movie, the franchise’s fifth, will exhaust the Marvel characters on screen:
“I don’t see an exhaustion. The X-Men universe is boundless,” he added. “These are great characters. And as young characters, they are quite different than the characters we have seen in the contemporary movies.”
