X-Men 3 to start shooting in May?

mistyque.jpgThe good folks over at SuperHeroHype.com posted a quote from the Daily Telegraph in which X-Men star Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (Mystique) confirms that she is involved with the 3rd installment of the X-Men franchise, and that she believes shooting for the film will begin in May.

To me, this is fantastic news. For my money (and I know I’m in the VAST minority on this one) the X-Men films have been BY FAR the most solid comic adaptations (yes, even better than the Spider-Man films). Many people forget (and I know I’ve mentioned this a few times) that X-Men single handedly resurrected the whole comic book genre of movies after Arnold and Batman single handedly killed it. Every “super-hero” film made in the last few years would have NEVER made it to the screen (Spider-man, Hulk, DareDevil, Elektra ect.) if it wasn’t for Bryan Singer and the X-Men.

Now, as long as Catwoman doesn’t screw things up for everyone…
