    Bryan Singer back on board for the next X-Men movie

    And everybody said

    The Hollywood Reporter | Heat Vision: Fox confirms Bryan Singer on 'X-Men: First Class,' hires writer (UPDATED)

    Bryan Singer is returning to Fox for another "X-Men" movie.
    Singer, who directed the first two installments before famously jumping ship to make “Superman Returns,” has signed on to develop and direct “X-Men: First Class.”

    The studio has tapped Jamie Moss to write the screenplay and work with Singer on the project, which goes back to the drawing board. "Class" was put into development in 2008 as a prequel to the "X-Men" movies, looking at the teenage years of the super-powered mutant heroes seen the “X-Men” movies and the “Wolverine” movie. New characters will also be created.

    The story is still in the early stages of development but will deal with the first meeting of Charles Xavier and Magneto and involve the creation of the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, the school masquerading as the headquarters of the X-Men.
    Still not sure I'm all on-board for "Teenage Mutants" but the first meating of Prof. X and Magneto = AWESOME.

    Darn! It would be cooler if they just brought the New Mutants or Generation X to life!

    eh. I'm not thrilled. Doesn't sound all that promising. I don't like the idea of "new characters" Why can't they explore the pasts of the already well known characters?

    I read that they might do this new movie with the original X-Men in the comic books. Only problem was that it wouldn't relate to the movies they have done already. Im not too exited about these new characters too.

    As much as I love Patrick Stewart... I hope they recast a younger Professor Xavier... only because the computer generated younger Patrick Stewart from X-Men Wolverine was creepy... and that was only for 30 seconds.... I couldn't stand looking at that for an entire movie.

    the school masquerading as the headquarters of the X-Men.
    Minor quibble - don't they mean "the school that the headquarters of the X-men masquerades as?" I mean, isn't the school what's known to the public, and the X-Men's headquarters the hidden element?
