Director Matthew Vaughn is taking a page from director Christopher Nolan’s book when it comes to “X-Men: First Class.” Vaughn tells MTV News that the upcoming film is an origin story that will feel different from other origin stories we’ve seen before.
“This is going to be very different. What I’m doing no one has done in superhero films. It’s James Bond, it’s a political thriller and it’s an X-Men movie,” he says.
Vaughn came to the project with an open mind. Let’s face it: the direction taken in “X-Men: The Last Stand” was not a particularly welcome one, a fact that he recognized going in.
“It’s not like the other X-Men movies which I think is important. I think they need to sort of take on a new… you know, what ‘Batman Begins’ did for all those Batman movies? We bloody well need it. I’m not saying it’s going to be as good as Batman Begins, but it’s the same sort of attitude,” he said.
