20th Century Fox has finally announced a July 18th, 2014 release date for their as of yet untitled X-Men: First Class sequel.
As we reported last month, the project is likely to shoot in January of 2013 to avoid scheduling conflicts with star Jennifer Lawrence
, who will soon be shooting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She’s expected to reprise her role of Mystique alongside James McAvoy
, Michael Fassbender
, January Jones
, Nicholas Hoult
, Caleb Landry Jones
and Lucas Till
The first film, released last year, grossed over $350 million worldwide. Director Matthew Vaughn
will also return to direct the sequel.
