Could Kitty Pryde soon be using curse words no mutant has ever used before? (Well, except for Wolverine—we're sure he's said it all.) Now that Kick-Ass screenwriter Jane Goldman has signed on to provide the script for X-Men: First Class—who knows?

Goldman joins Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn, who climbed on board last week to direct the X-Men prequel movieX-Men: First Class.

The news was revealed this morning by U.K. talk-show host Jonathan Ross on his Twitter feed (below) where he wrote, "Also, for those who need to know, my wife IS currently writing X men First Class. It's just referred to as X men 4 around the house..."

We have no idea what to expect—but anyone who (if Wikipedia can be believed) loves Jack Kirby so much that she named one of her kids after the X-Men co-creator should do just fine.

What do you think?
