Matthew Vaughn speaking to Total Film says:
“First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time. But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time. That’s the main difference between Begins and The Dark Knight.”While First Class takes place in 1962, Vaughn tells TotalFilm to expect a more 50s-aesthetic since it takes about five years for a decade to find its own style. So where would Vaughn like a sequel to pick up?
“The fun thing about this for me would be doing [a sequel] in the latter part of the decade, where you’ve got The Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power…”
