So aside from Magneto, how many more of these do they plan on doing?

Confirmed? Like I said earlier in the thread its only Magneto and First Class. With Hugh Jackman talking about wanting to do a follow up and even a trilogy to Wolverine.

They described the early drafts of Magneto as "The Pianist meets X-Men". That's aiming pretty high if you ask me if they want to compare it to The Pianist.

Wolverine got $87million on its opening weekend, 'impressive' but rather low next to the 'estimated $150milion' budget... Probably ending up with a very low profit or even a loss. Do you think 'Magneto' would still go ahead if that's the case? 'X-Men meets The Pianist' or not, Ian McKellan is hardly the same kind of heartthrob as Jackman.

I'm sympathetic to Jackman but Fox really needs to just get the message and start making better movies or stop making more movies.

I'm actually felling this First Class, I always like to see the heroes while there young teens, That's why I like x-men evolution and currently watching wolverine and the x-men.

And I just thought of somebody that would make a great cameo.

Havok!

Havok would be perfect for any of the later movies. We'll get some story with cyclops too.

has left HJU. Not coming back.
X-Men: First Class... I don't know about you... from what I've heard that they are doing a reboot X-Men instead of X-Men 4. *sigh*

DC just had Watchmen, honestly the whole "DC vs Marvel" idea is pretty stupid and juvenile. Enjoy both and read some Vertigo and Image while you're at it. Sure both companies do indirectly compete with each other but they don't force you to choose one or the either. Besides how many Marvel movies are actually good compared to the DC movies like Road to Perdition, V for Vendetta, and The Dark Knight?

Anyway on the subject the list of confirmed forthcoming Marvel movies (from multiple studios) includes: X-Men Origins: Magneto, X-Men: First Class, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant Man, Spider-Man 4 & 5, The Avengers, and Kick Ass. Most of which with no set release date except for sometime in 2011-2012.

The list of confirmed forthcoming DC movies includes: Green Lantern, The Dark Knight followup, Jonah Hex, and Superman Unleashed.

X-Men: First Class... I don't know about you... from what I've heard that they are doing a reboot X-Men instead of X-Men 4. *sigh*

That rumor is false so far, X-Men: First Class is confirmed. Who knows they could do a reboot.

True that true that. :hmm:

But the DC vs. Marvel thing is always fun to think about. In terms of heroes clashing. Everyone I know still wants that game to come out.

In terms of heroes clashing its been done multiple times. They've had official Marvel vs DC comics like 4 or 5 times in the past.

I'd only want to see it if it was with prof x as well:D

X-Men Origins: Magneto is said to have both Prof. X and Magneto and they'll have some villain to fight by the end. It definitely doesn't sound like "The Pianist meets X-Men" with a plot synopsis like that

:eyebrow: $87m is a fucking great OW, did you really expect it to recoup all of its budget in three days? It should have no problem making a decent profit.

It was an amazing opening weekend anyone that tells you different is just sour grapes. It will probably drop off next weekend a bit though.

I'd rather have like Storm Origins...or X-4 & let them continue the story after X-3.

Hell yeah I second that. And as of an X-4, I wanted them too because looking back X-3 is not what I call leaving with a bang, trust me. But now I don't really care either, because they might not carry out the characters well enough.

We need Quicksilver to make an appearance too.

Whomp, whomp!

How about we forget X-men: TLS ever happened and just continue on from there...preferably with Bryan Singer directing and Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris on the screenplay.
