The "X-Men" franchise producers are planning for four spin-offs featuring characters from the "X-Men" film trilogy.

According to, the actor Hugh Jackman has already agreed to play Wolverine and will begin shooting next year.

The 20th Century Fox's production president Hutch Parker says: "We've also talked about doing something on the kids in (Professor X's) school, focusing on their lives, and less of a global adventure for the team."

Another solo project currently in the pipeline is called Magneto, which will focus on the character's pre-villain days.
