“X-Men: First Class 2” production delayed until next year

Production of the follow-up to the popular “X-Men: First Class” film has been delayed and set to begin in January 2013 due to the popularity of “The Hunger Games”.

As most of you know, “The Hunger Games” released to huge box office numbers and production of the sequel, “Catching Fire”, will be using the talent of Jennifer Lawrence who plays Katniss in the films and Mystique in “First Class”.

Fox has decided to move production of “X-Men” back in order to allow Lawrence time to shoot the follow up to “The Hunger Games” and I’m sure giving her another movie to build her popularity will only make her that much more desirable for “X-Men: First Class 2”
