I met James McAvoy back in February at the press day for Gnomeo And Juliet and the dude has a very thick, I mean seriously thick heavy Scottish accent, so the fact that TotalFilm could transcribe the following statement from McAvoy is pretty amazing in my book. Ha!
McAvoy who starred in one of this year’s well-received summer blockbusters, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, revealed that he and his co-stars are obligated to reprise their roles in the sequels..
“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!”
“I’ve spoken to Matthew [Vaughn] about ideas, but I can’t tell you what they are because they may or may not be the story. One thing I liked about our one was that it was different from the other three films where the X-Men are the good guys, Wolverine’s figuring out who he is and Magneto is the bad guy.
“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.”
So my question to you is.. what would be considered a.. cleverer.. plot for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS sequel. What do you think the story should be about this time, now that the bromance of the first movie is out of the way?
