First Class Image

It’s always cool when those you consider extenderd writers family get to work on more projects that you’re very interested in. Especially if those projects are on the big screen. The last time I talked about Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller it was because they were working on the script for Thor well now they’ve begun work on another project and that is a crack at X-Men: First Class.

The Folks at i09 posted an interview with the writers, and I’ll post a small section right here:

Did you feel any pressure/desire/necessity to “reintroduce” us to the X-Men?

ZS: In some sense you should be reintroducing your characters in every film.
AEM: The thing is, we’ve been here before. We did it on Terminator for two seasons. We did it on Thor. You learn how to approach the material as something you can live in and not just nod at.
ZS: Well, look at Star Trek (2009) — that’s a film that did a great job of acknowledging that its characters are part of the culture, yet treating them as fresh and new to the audience.
AEM: I would also argue that if you’re telling a story where your characters can no longer surprise the audience, you’re telling the wrong story. These characters surprised us at every turn, sometimes in really wonderful and emotional ways. Those moments are what make movies great.
