James McAvoy talked to Total Film about sequels to this year’s surprising hit X-Men: First Class, noting that he’s both contractually obligated to be in another flick, but interested as well. “I’d be up for it. But the truth is I’m contractually obliged to be up for it because they made us all sign multiple picture deals!” McAvoy told the magazine.
McAvoy went on to explain that he has spoken with director Matthew Vaughn about possible story arcs for potential sequel. The actor liked their new take on the X-Men films as they didn’t pit Professor X against Magneto and also feature Wolverine trying to find himself. “This was a completely different thing. Magneto wasn’t a bad guy, we were friends. We’re now set up to go back to the way the other movies are, so we’ve got to try to be cleverer than that.”
With no shortage of source material to pull from and a legion of mutants at their disposal, there should be no trouble coming up with another story that fits in with what Vaughn and the writers. More retro superhero goodness on the big screen, please!
