Fassbender wants an X-Men sequel

Michael Fassbender credits the X-Men prequel's success to Matthew Vaughn

Michael Fassbender has revealed he would like to see a sequel to X-Men: First Class.

The Jane Eyre star, who will next be seen in Shame and A Dangerous Method, has already been chatting to co-star James McAvoy about ideas for a potential follow-up.

"It was a very rewarding experience, so hopefully we'll get the same team back again," he told MTV News.

One thing he does hope is that it would be easier than the prequel, which starred Michael as a young Magneto and James as Professor Charles Xavier.

"We worked very hard. It was a very trying time. Thank God, James is a very good guy, a very smart guy and he's a very practical guy," he said.

The 34-year-old credits the film's box office success to director Matthew Vaughn.

"He's great because he makes films as a fan. There's something like a nine-year-old boy in him when he's making a film," he admitted.

"He's very much into characters and allowing the characters to drive the plot and the plot to drive the action film, as opposed to action driving the film and threading in some sort of a plot."

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
