    X-men Movie news (Wolverine and Magneto)

    Looks like it it almost 100% official that the X-men movie triology is going to have two prequels in the future.

    Wolverine is slated for 2008 while Magneto is possible for 2009 (clickable links to IMDB).

    Hugh Jackman will reprise his role Wolverine, Magneto has no actors signed up yet.

    While he doesn't specifically say that there will be an X-Men 4, Fox's Tom Rothman has responded to the many e-mails and letters from fans about further "X-Men"movies. The note at TheXVerse.com reads:

    The next film in the X-Men series will be "Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman. You can expect some announcements about this movie in the very near future. And we fully intend to continue to make more "X-Men" films with both old and new muties. So fans can rest assured that they will have many opportunities in the coming years to see their favorite characters on the big screen.

    The other spinoff in the works is Magneto. In related news, Rebecca Romijn was asked by MTV if she'd heard anything about either spinoff. She hasn't.
    ...it's been a long time.

    OK I'm really leary about these movies especially how they destroyed the whole Dark Phoenix Saga in the last film. I love Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine but these writers and directors have a habit of destroying already well written stories.

    No offense to Hugh Jackman, but if it's a prequel, how can he pull that off?

    Fox destroyed the Dark Phoenix Saga, and the last film in general by forcing X3 into production without waiting for Bryan Singer. Singer was the man who made the first two films work. The third film, while entertaining, was a complete destruction of the X-Men trilogy. The film had a weaker story, too many new characters with no character development, and it killed off or ignored major players who shouldn't have been killed off or ignored (Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Rogue, etc)

    Re: X-men Movie news (Wolverine and Magneto)

    I thought X-men 3 was horrid. If my fiance rents the new Wolvie or Magneto movie I will probably watch it, but I sure won't spend $9.50 to see it in theatres. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from watching the last one.

    Besides I am still mad they never put Gambit in the movies. Although there are rumors that Gambit will be a major part of the Wolverine movie. If it turns out true I might see the Wolverine movie...in the cheap seats.

    Re: X-men Movie news (Wolverine and Magneto)

    With Marvel Studios cranking out around 2 or more movies per year, I'm kinda burnt out with the X-men series. They should give it some more time to build up anticipation, even if it is just Wolverine or Magneto.

    I hope they pull of Ironman better than Ghost Rider. And hopefully Thor will blow everyone's mind...
