Plus: 'Reaper' star does 'Dollhouse,' a 'Basterd' to battle 'The Green Hornet,' 'New Moon' tickets going fast and more
Someone's about to get in trouble.
20th Century Fox has already announced that a sequel to the blockbuster "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is in development as well as a spin-off for fan favorite "Deadpool." A young "X-Men" or "X-Men: First Class" movie focusing on the early years of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Storm, etc. has also been rumored to be in the works, but the status of the project was unclear. Now, MTV Movies noticed that actor Tim Pocock, who played the younger Cyclops in "Wolverine," left the following update on his Twitter account:
currently shooting Australian TV series till February 2010...then X-men first class ;)
That would seem to indicate "First Class" would go into production as early as next year for a 2011 release. With "Wolverine 2" also expected in 2011 as well as "Spider-Man 4" and "Thor," it could be a very Marvel summer indeed.
