?X-Men: The Last Stand? Writer Simon Kinberg Hired To Write ?X-Men: First Class? Sequel

Seems that ‘X-Men: First Class’ sequel is finally moving forward! Yesterday SuperHeroType gave away some details related to the next ‘X-Men’ movie and now we know who’s writing the script!

SuperHeroHype has learned that Simon Kinberg is writing the sequel to 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: First Class, which has earned over $350 million since opening in theaters this June.

While there is no confirmation, we assume Matthew Vaughn will be returning to the director’s chair and the principal cast will reprise their roles, including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones and Jennifer Lawrence.

Kinberg’s other writing credits include Mr. & Mrs Smith, Jumper, Sherlock Holmes, This Means War and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Many discussion forums are flooded by negative comments in connection with Fox’s decision. Oh c’mon, give him a chance! I haven’t seen X3 yet, so I haven’t much to say, but as far as I’m concerned, I just can’t wait for X-Men: First Class sequel :-).
