Marvel Hires Michael Lesslie To Write X-Men Reboot Movie

Marvel hires Michael Lesslie to write X-men reboot movie

Following on from the rumors, it is now confirmed that Marvel has hired Michael Lesslie to write their X-Men reboot movie. Rumor has been that an X-Men movie is set to go into production sometime in late 2025. Now, that movie has a writer.

As per Deadline;

‘Following the success of its animated series X-Men ’97, Marvel Studios is now ramping things up on its live-action X-Men movie with Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes scribe Michael Lesslie in negotiations to pen the movie. The film is still in early development with no talent or director attached and no release date set. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will produce.’

Of course whether Lesslie ends up with the final draft of the script remains to be seen? What does seem clear is that Lesslie’s basic pitch is what Marvel are looking for from this film.

‘As Deadline reported last fall, this project became one of the first major writing assignments to open up once the writers strike had been resolved. Feige and his execs made it clear there was no rush and have taken their time meeting with numerous candidates since then. Late last week, the decision was made to go with Lesslie. (Lesslie was mentioned in the InSneider Newsletter as a finalist.)’

I have no frame of reference for Lesslie as a writer. However, I trust that Marvel will make sure this movie is right before they release it. There’s too much potential in X-Men to make a mistake.
