'X-MEN FIRST CLASS' Sequel Coming Christmas 2013

20th Century's Tom Rothman is quickly becoming more a voice piece for the studio than ever before. During CinemaCon, Rothman had been talking up future films like The Wolverine (July 26th 2013), Daredevil and Fantastic Four reboots. He also talked to MTV about the X-Men First Class sequel which he confirms will shoot in January for a possible Christmas 2013 release date.

"We're going to start shooting January 2013 for [a release date of] either Christmas 2013, or Summer 2014,....The script is in development now. Matt, Simon Kinberg and Jane Goldman are working on it now."

Jennifer Lawrence's Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire will be shooting first. Since the studio has given Lionsgate enough time to make the sequel before sweeping Jennifer back for First Class 2. It would make sense to release the X-Men sequel right after Catching Fire (November 22nd 2013) to capture that exposure of Lawrence.They are also open to giving it more time for a summer 2014 release date if needed.
