Matthew Vaughn Planned to Make a Young Wolverine Movie

If you're an in-demand enough director, you can afford to be choosy. The superhero movie was set in the 1960s and was anticipated to be the first of several period-set X-Men movies, with a possible sequel centering around a young Wolverine in the '70s.

With his new film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, opening in theaters this weekend, director Matthew Vaughn has been on the promotional trailer for the movie.

Strangely, after the success of X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn opted out of any further sequels. Besides wanting to develop another fresh story, Vaughn admitted to Uproxx that he and Fox didn't see eye-to-eye on which direction to take the X-Men.

"The other one I've felt an obligation to do is, I wouldn't mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn't go very well for them. And on Days of Future Past, even though I co-wrote the bloody thing, the reason I bailed out of it is two things", Vaughn said. The first reason was that he wanted to explore his own "sandbox", which led him to Kingsman. I felt that one should be in a trilogy and Days of Future Past should be the finale of that story.

Originally, Vaughn wanted to follow up First Class with a bridge movie that would lead into Days of Future Past by introducing a younger version of Wolverine. Still, it would be cool to get a young Wolverine film from Fox with Vaughn at the helm.

It's tempting to puzzle out why the studio was against the idea-perhaps they, like most fans of the franchise, weren't keen on the idea of a recast Wolverine. We have to admit the scene did work pretty well and we're looking forward to X-Men: Dark Phoenix. It's not clear whether Vaughn meant that he would cast a younger actor to play Wolverine in the distant past or tell a story with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. One thing's certain: if through nothing else but Ryan Reynolds' sheer tyranny of will, we probably still would've gotten Deadpool.
