Sequel Updates: 'Hangover 3,' 'Indy 5,' 'Tron: Legacy 2' and 'X-Men: First Class 2'

Hangover 3:

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Zach Galifianakis dishes out some info on the third installment of The Hangover. Story details are being kept secret, but Galifianakis tells the magazine that the third movie will ditch the format of the first two and focus on his character Alan escaping from a mental institution with the help of Stu (Ed Helms) and Phil (Bradley Cooper). While it's entirely possible that the straight-faced funnyman could be joking, we do know that a third Hangover is inevitable, especially after Part 2 opened to an $85 million weekend and has brought in nearly $200 million domestically and $350 million worldwide. If what he says is true, what do you think of the new plot?
Indy 5:
Just when you thought you'd had enough of the father/son bonding between Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the rumors are that George Lucas is planning a fifth installment. LaBeouf spoke with MTV during the 2011 MTV Movie Awards this past weekend and said that he had recently spoken to Ford. "He said he's staying in the gym, he said he's heard no word, but he does know that [Lucas] is out there looking for a MacGuffin." While Lucas works on nailing down the MacGuffin (or 'plot element' that catches viewer's attention – no more aliens, please), Ford has said that he's up for a fifth movie. "It's on George's plate and I'm hoping he's working hard at it, because I'd look forward to doing it again if the three of us could get together – George, Steven Spielberg, myself – I'd love to do another." What do you think? Should Indy hang up the fedora and whip, or are you up for another go-round (sans aliens)?
Tron: Legacy 2:
We hadn't heard much about a possible sequel to Tron: Legacy following its release late last year. The heavily marketed Disney movie opened to a disappointing $44 million before exiting theaters with a domestic total of $172 million. The movie cost $170 million to make, and an untold amount to market. Foreign markets added $228 million to boost the worldwide total to $400 million. A half a year removed now, and it seems Disney is getting the ball rolling on a second Legacy movie. The studio has hired David DiGilio to write the script since original Legacy scribes Adam Horowitz and Adam Kitsis are busy with the ABC fall series "Once Upon A Time." DiGilio wrote the script for Eight Below starring Paul Walker and Jason Biggs, and created/wrote the 2007 crime thriller TV series "Traveler "for ABC. Given where Legacy ended, what do you think this second movie should be about, and are you excited for the potential of another Tron movie?
The X-Men: First Class sequel:
While X-Men: First Class prepares to take on J.J. Abrams' Super 8 at the box office this weekend, talk has been swirling about potential sequels to the film. The man behind the sequel hype is filmmaker Bryan Singer who produced First Class. Singer shared a few ideas with the Los Angeles Times about where the X-Men franchise could go once First Class bows out of theaters. "I don't know if every movie has to be a history lesson. But there's a lot of history to cover. If we sequelized this, it could inhabit a whole world of the 20th century. When First Class happened, Kennedy had not been assassinated and the Vietnam War hadn't happened yet."
While they're not confirming any new development, executives at Fox certainly hope First Class continues to perform well. Its worldwide gross is at $129 million thus far, against a $160 million budget, so there is some ground to make up. Singer though has embraced the idea of a sixth X-Men movie, especially if it means weaving in real-world events into the storyline. "You don't need to hit people over the head in every movie or every scene, but having them at the core of the conflict is what I think makes it all work."
If Fox moves forward with a sequel, what do you think should it be about, where should it be set and which X-Men should appear in it?
