Is X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Kid Cyclops twitter-teasing us, or are we closer to the prospect of the X-Men movie reboot than we'd previously thought? Click through for speculations and potential spoilers.

MTV's Splash Page blog noticed that Tim Pocock, who played the young Cyclops in this summer's retro X-Men movie had left the following update on Twitter:

currently shooting Australian TV series till February 2010...then X-men first class ;)
If true, this is the first hint that Fox's much-discussed semi-reboot to the franchise — Following X-Men Origins: Wolverine continuity, but flashing back to before the first X-Men movie — will be shooting as early as next year, but with no announcement concerning director or stars of the movie, it's possible that Pocock may just be being hopeful with his tweet. We'll wait and see whether Fox sneaks any news out before the end of the year.
