Michael Fassbender has said that an X-Men: First Class sequel is likely.
The Shame star joked that he is being forced to return for a follow-up to the superhero prequel.
“I have no choice,”
Fassbender told SuperHeroHype.
“They contracted me for two options.”
“I gotta get down with it,”
he joked, before adding in seriousness:
“We’re at the ground level, but yeah I think there’s going to be another one.”
Fassbender previously said that he is “giddy” at the prospect of an X-Men: First Class sequel, suggesting that he would like the film to focus on the story of how James McAvoy‘s Professor Charles Xavier becomes Professor X.
