    Well that could happen If the filmmakers listen to some and announced First Class as
    a reboot.So people should hope they keep this as Prequel/Recon

    Reboot or not, I don't think Wolverine belongs in this series of the X-Men's early years. Not to mention that for a mainstream audience, it would ask questions as to why they never remembered meeting him before. Do they all get to have mindwipes this time? I don't think it would work. I can only think of one scenario where he could be included successfully and I don't want to give anyone any ideas!

    I would rather the First Class franchise try to follow the early comics (prior to the Second Genesis of 1975) where possible. There's already been enough criticism of the existing character line-ups. I'd rather see, for instance, Taylor Lautner as Thunderbird than see Wolverine. Not that I particularly want Thunderbird either.

    Wolverine needs that visionary Japan tale (which might have been better delivered with Aronofsky, but still...).

    If they want star power for First Class 2, there must be some other big actor and some other interesting character they can introduce.

    There are ways to Include wolverine If they wanted.There were hints to X2 that Xavier and Magneto had prior knowledge of Wolverine.The big probelem Is Beast
    having no prior memory of Wolverine In Last Stand.But Vaughn and Singer already showed they don't care about conterdicting The Last Stand.I am not supporting the Idea of Wolverine In sequel but the chances Increase If they would listen to some who say call first Class a reboot.

    I say do The Wolverine and then wait for eather X4 after this trilogy or the eventual reboot(fox has to keep making X-Men films to keep the rights.If X4 Isn't made after the first Class trilogy Is completed then they will eventully reboot X-Men)

    ...that it's Wolverine shooting in fall. Of course, it's possible that First Class may shoot at the same time, but it seems unlikely somehow.

    I don't care about Wolverine but I'm happy as long as XFC2 doesn't conflict with Catching Fire.

    Was it hard for Hugh Jackman to return as Wolverine for x-men sequels?

    Then you have the answer.

    but he had plenty of movies after X2.

    right now, Jennifer only has the sequel to Hunger Games.

    is the same scenario, more or less.

    Scheduling conflict is the matter at hand though. Im sure she has contracts with both franchises. If both shoot around the same time, its hard to see given the success and demand for Hunger Games that JL would choose FC over it. Shes more important for that franchise then she is in X-Men. Hope she does both, and Im sure Fox is taking note on her status. It would be in the best interest of Fox to make sure FC2 doesnt conflict with the Hunger Games sequel.

    I hope Jennifer's role in the sequel isn't downscaled as a result of her filming Catching Fire. Her storyline in XFC2 should be interesting.

    First off we have no Idea if there will be a conflict with the first Class sequel.Catching
    Fire starts filming this summer.We have no Idea when the first Class sequel begins
    filming.Besides the possable schedule conflict we have heard nothing that suggests
    the first Class sequel will beguin filming this year.Besides The success of Hungar Games
    gurantees Fox will want to use jennifer In promation when the sequel Is released.I willl gurantee when the sequel Is made Jennifer's screentime will be used majorly In trailer.

    That Hollywood reporter article and a few here on Shh all mention hearing things and that it could happen. If the films do have a conflict. I would not bet alot on her returning to FC2.

    Great times for Mystique's fans, definety.

    Fox will clearly give Raven an even more interesting role next time, since Jennifer is really becoming a pretty decent star, and this is just the beggining of her career.

    on other hand, Im a bit sad that the baddies of this new franchise are getting more shine on the industry than the x-team.

    We need a new star on the x-team!

    hopefully the sequel will bring a new actor that can become a big star too. Id like to see a younger actor becoming bigger just after the x-franchise. like happened with Hugh.

    But not another major franchise. Obviously that didn't happen with Van Helsing - he even made fun of it in his last Broadway show. He wasn't locked into another series of movies after any of the X-Men movies.

    Considering Hunger Games has made more in it's first 3 days than XMFC made in its entire domestic run, that series needs to be the priority. People want to see her as Katniss again before they see her as Mystique.

    She has 3 more Hunger Games films. There are two books left in the series and they're splitting the third book into two movies.

    but that doesnt mean the studio will shoot them back to back.

    I think some of you feel a bit insecure about Jennifer being on two franchises at the same time.

    Actors use to have many proyects and the studios are used to work their agendas to let the actors shoot different movies. its not a big issue.

    The sequel to Hunger game will start filming this fall, so I don't see how they can fit X-men into her schedule. I hope they don't do her in human form, with other actress in Mystique form.

    Let's worry about Jennifer's schedule when we hear when Fox Is scheduling the First
    Class sequel.I don't see fox releasing 2 X-Men films In the summer of 2013.

    Jennifer has maintained If Mystique Is In sequel she will be back and she wants to come back.After Halle Berry won the oscar she wasn't very enthurstic about coming back for X2.She only did that because of her contract.And she attended none of the X2 premieres
    and the only press she did for X2 was an appearance on Letterman.If It hadn't been for failure of Catwoman and demise of the Jinx spinoff she probally wouldn't have returned for Last Stand.Plus Jennifer has a contract with Fox.This Is fox.why would they release
    her from the contract when her being In film Is now bound to create more attention for
    the first Class sequel.All this talk Is mute untill we know whata timeframe Matthew Vaughn Is working on.
