Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men Trilogy would have a young Wolverine movie and end with Days of Future Past
X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn recently shared his thoughts about the X-Men movies he started as well as his intended path towards concluding the trilogy.
Bear with this blog post though as there are a lot of quotes regarding Matthew Vaughn’s original take for the new X-Men movie trilogy. Also these are excerpts from his recent interview with Coming Soon.
Here’s what he had planned for the story:
My plan was First Class, then, the second film was new young Wolverine in the ’70s to continue those characters, my version of the X-Men. My finale was gonna be Days of Future Past. That was gonna be my number three where you bring them all… because what’s bigger than bringing in McKellen and Michael and Stewart and James and bringing them all together?
Vaughn then confirms that the folks at 20th Century Fox loved “Days of Future Past” so much that they wanted to make it the follow up to “First Class”. He didn’t want to skip over his “Wolverine” movie (which he repeats could have had Tom Hardy as Wolverine).
When his authority as writer and director for the new X-Men movies were superseded by the bosses of 20th Century Fox, he decided to ditch the movie and focuses elsewhere, which was how we got Kingsman: The Secret Service.
