‘X-Men First Class’ sequel will have more of Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, says writer

Screenwriter Simon Kinberg drop a few hints about what we could expect to see in an X-Men First Class sequel. In two words: More Magneto.

MTV got the chance to speak with Kinberg at the premiere of McG’s This Means War, which Kinberg also wrote.

“I don’t know what the title is going to be but certainly the sequel to X-Men: First Class, I’m working on now,” he said. “I’m going to be writing and producing it, I’m starting now, with Matthew Vaughn directing it.”

“I’m a huge X-Men fan. I grew up loving the comic books and it was really exciting to be able to do the origin of Xavier and Magneto, and getting those two actors, McAvoy and [Michael] Fassbender, were really amazing,” he said. “So being able to explore those characters with actors of that quality will be exciting a second time around, and doing some things unexpected with those characters, which is the plan.”

“That’s the thing that was so cool about the first movie and we’d want to continue,” he said of Magneto’s origin story as portrayed in First Class. “Magneto becomes the villain ultimately of the franchise but he’s a much more complicated character as a young man. He’s someone you sympathize with, you care about, you root for. Even though might not necessarily agree with his methods, you understand his philosophy.”
