X-Men: The First Class?

Well, it finally happened. What some fans have geared because they didn't like X-Men 3: The Last Stand, there will be a new X-Men movie besides X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men Origins: Magento and it will be called X-men: The First Class. "The O.C." and "Gossip Girl" producer Josh Schwartz has been tapped to helm it. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is due to come out May 2009 and X-Men Origins: Magento hasn't started filming. "Fox has been leaning toward using the younger characters introduced in the previous pics in future installments -- teenagers with powers taught at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning. Given Hollywood's penchant for reboots with new actors playing familiar roles, pic could also reintroduce characters. Comicbook revolves around the Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Angel and Professor X." And lots of new Marvel films are re-booting and rather quickly if you ask me like Punisher and the Hulk. It would be cool to have a movie with those six characters.
