X-Men: First Class Sequel Delayed For Catching Fire

The upcoming sequel to last year's blockbuster, X-Men: First Class will apparently take a temporary backseat to the upcoming sequel to current blockbuster, The Hunger Games. With star, Jennifer Lawrence currently finding herself as one of the most in-demand actresses, the move should resolve tensions between 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate over which franchise mega sequel she would tackle first.

Lawrence will first shoot the second of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, for Lionsgate from August to September, which will allow her to subsequently reprise her role as the seductive provocative protean mutant, Mystique when the First Class sequel (originally slated to shoot this summer,) shoots in the now-revised time of January. (Possibly slating the film for as late as summer 2014.)

This comes as good news to fans of both franchises and serves as the best solution, second, perhaps to having Jennifer Lawrence cloned by scientists. -- A plan that frankly, should still remain in play, because...well, look at her.
