X-Men 4 & New Mutants Movies On The Way?

x men 4 team roster X Men 4 & New Mutants Movies On The Way?

The X-Men franchise has a bright future on the silver screen. With multiple projects in their early stages of development and several given the greenlight after the financial success of X-Men Origins: Wolverine to kick off this summer, there seems to be no end in sight for what the future may hold of Fox Studio’s hot property.

I’ll bet Disney wishes they could have picked up this film license in their acquisition of Marvel

Aside from solo films for Magneto and Deadpool, and the prequel team-up film X-Men: First Class, we might be getting a movie based on the New Mutants comic line and… a possible X-Men 4?

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who has worked on all of the X-films thus far, was in attendance for the Fox press presentation of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine Blu-ray release and fielded some questions from the audience about the future of the franchise, including some from Brendon Connelly of /Film.

One of the first things addressed was the Tim Pocock (young Cyclops) tweet that got out which hinted at X-Men: First Class beginning filming early next year. Shortly after, Pocock re-tweeted a follow-up saying that it was a prank and to retract any news from it.

On that topic, Donner said it’s complete false and that no one is yet signed for the First Class film but did confirm that all of the young mutants appearing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine did have the standard options in their contracts for more flicks should they decide to go that path (which they will).

Here’s where the interesting part comes in: Donner then revealed that she’s been working on plans for even more films than the ones we already know about and she said two of them are X-Men 4, which would bring back the characters of old, and a film based on The New Mutants.

X-Men 4?! That’s major if it happens, but when would they film it? Jackman’s got Wolverine 2 in development which wont be out for a few years, how much can he push his body physically 4-5 years down the road for the part? Assuming of course, he plays a prominent role in the fourth installment…

When could it realistically be made and in what order would the films go into production? There’s Deadpool, X-Men Origins: Magneto, Wolverine 2, X-Men First: Class, a possible Gambit movie down the road, and now two more!

  1. I hope they dont bring in Magneto cause we seen enough outta him. I wanna see new villains like Mr. Sinister etc. take over the villain role. Id like to see Pyro come back too, but only if they get more creative with him as they did with Iceman w/ Pyro using his powers to make objects of fire etc. Id love to the Sentinels aswell and have Gambit start off as kinda a bad guy w/ Sinister and later join the X-men.

  2. I hope that Kitty pryde will be in one of those movies with a big role. Atleast give her a big scene. Let other new mutants be popular too. I really hope so.

  3. OMG It would be so wondeful if you put storm in the movie I like her and her powers, plus if u do make her look good

  4. yea tht would be tight too

  5. I've been a fan for more than ten years and have seen most of the marvel films, even the older films.
    X 3 can be fixed and secondly, the so call cure is temporary, we know that Xavier is back now all we need are a clone of him, and doubles of Scott and Jean. Stick as close to the comic line as much as possible, it's truly the only way.
    As of Wolverine there was too much special effects, and it wasn't dark enough, one other flaw was the cast was too big. It should have featured Wolverine in the right way, these so called actors and directors are not true fans.

  7. i would like rouge and gambit to get together some how or meet.i mean in x men 3 rouge leaves and she took the cure.but if magneto can start getting his powers back then she can to because she is just as strong as him.so somehow she could meet gambit and end up going back to the school with him and then he sees wolverine and he remembers him a little ,then gambit kinda likes rouge but bobby(ice man)even though he is with kittie i believe now gets kinda jelouse because she can sorta be close with gambit and all in all they all come together for this big fight with either sinister or apocalypse.

    • I agree completely! Through the entire X-Men movie franchise I’ve been wanting a Gambit/Rogue movie! I think it would be amazing and people would love their story!

  8. If they're doing this then they need to bring Apocalypse into the scene!

  9. When it comes to the X-men comic's, one thinks of it as a group. How X-Men 1 – 3 where handled, felt a lot more like Wolverine films.
    I enjoyed Wolverine only up to a point, the director totally missed the point in the character and how the film was handled. The beginning of the film was awesome, then there were crazy effects which the character would never do. One the film should have been dark in tone, too much sunlight for my taste.
    Wolverine is a dark character and someone you don't mess with, he's a loner, he's head strong, he's got a nasty temper and I would have preferred the introduction of the Canadian X-men team. Alpha Flight.
    As of the title alone I thought it was weak why call it X-Men: Origins: Wolverine when it should just say Wolverine.
    I won't grumble about X-Men: New Class or X-Men 4, but what I ask for is that these people to get it right. Otherwise, don't bother.

    Just don't get me started on the new reboot of SpiderMan

  10. I Think that although Stan Lee & Avi Arad as done some awesome modern versions of our favorite superheros from Marvel. I haven’t seen a single reinstallment of the Mutant only known as Arcade, with all this Hustle and bustle about technology these days I’m shocked that the Great Stan Lee hasn’t explored the thought of making a mutant with Technopathic abilities. As well as other things such as reversing time & Space to bring back the dead either human nor Mutant.

  11. I’m amazed at what Stan Lee & Avi Arad did these days our favorite superheros. I’ve even started a visual Wiki of pictures on my computer of my favorite superheros. I would be as bold to say I’ve come up with a new member of the X-men. His name is Chad Magnus Maximoff Lensherr .a.k.a. Arcade and he’s a Technopath amoung other abilities such as the ability to reverse Time & space to bring back the dead either human or Mutant. This ability takes alot of energy out of Arcade because it takes everything he’s got to Preform this mutant power.

  12. for those of you thinking that magneto lost his powers wasnt watching very closely at the end of X-Men 3 THE LAST STAND. He is sitting in the park playing chess and starts moving the pieces on the board, so yes there is the opening for him the have his powers back. Plus after the credits in all the movies they show and opening for the next movies. But with the opening to all the new movies coming up they have to have move cause there is so many that need to be discovered character wise.

  13. I HOPE THEY BRING CYCLOPS/SCOT SUMMERS BACK BUT I AM SOOO GLAD THEY ARE DOING A NOTHER MOVIE ON X MEN

    • I agree! Cyclops didn’t get the attention he deserved!! After all he is the leader. I like Wolverine but I didn’t like how he took over all the movies and he is not the leader! I really do hope they bring in Cyclops and get it right. I think they did a great job with casting James Marsden and he was just playing the part they gave him, he has so much potential if they would just give him the chance to show his talent and make Cyclops the leader he deserves to be!

  14. I’ve been seen James Marsden a little interviewed that he wanted to be a scott summers / cyclops anymore in x men 4 play as cyclops using his laser.
    you get to find other potential x men star. like fame janssen for x men 4 she would be better play as Jean Grey / white phoenix of the crown that is so much much much much more powerful. and bring back halle berry and rebecca romijn as storm and mystique. and new mutants charlize theron as emma frost and angelina jolie as wanda maximoff / scarlet witch. x men 4 get to tell about the future past by villains with Apocalypse, Sinister, Onslaught, Bastion, Holocaust, Giant Sentinel, Lady Deathstrike

  15. i would love them to do the mutant massacre storyline or the fall of the mutants series as the casting would be amaizing or even the secret wars storyline would be fantastic im suprised they have’nt been done yet so many stories so many new characters.

  16. I cannot wait love all these films I hope the never stop making them :-)))))

  17. I reconized these charractors are these charractors from X-men Evolution? If not then whom are these Mutant? If Firestar is one of the Mutants then I’m defenly going to go see it. If not then this movie looks interresting, please someone sent me who the new mutants that’s going to be in the X-men 4 movie thanks.

  18. have just found these old articles…

    I remembered a few tidbits here and there, but its really interesting how Fox and producers had all these possible proyects in mind by that time, even before First Class.

    So if we take a look at all the proyects that were mentioned back in the day, this will be:

    Origins: Gambit
    Origins: Deadpool
    First Class
    X-Men 4 AND X-Men 5 (Lauren mentioned both in another interview)
    and New Mutants

    Wow… I know we got First Class and now Days of future past is coming, but feels a bit sad to see how they had a big plan in mind, but things didnt worked as fast as they wanted.

    In any case, Im sure Days of future past will be a new point 0 for Fox’s Franchise, and things will get even more interesting and faster after it. So… cant wait for 2014! :D

  19. x-men reboot cannot wait for this to happen. characters to be in it?

  20. I sure hope Firestar, Boom Boom will be in this movie
