Bryan Singer Talking To 20th Century Fox About Directing ‘X-Men 4’
The Movie God   |  @   |  


Back in June, Bryan Singer did an interview where he was asked about the X-Men franchise and whether he would ever return (Read: Is Bryan Singer Itching To Do More “˜X-Men’ Adventures?). He revealed that the four hours that it takes us to watch X-Men and X2: X-Men United took six years of his life, and so he is “eternally intertwined” with the franchise and would love to return.

While at the Pusan International Film Festival recently, Singer once again spoke about the possibility of retaking the helm for X-Men 4. He confirmed the previous interview statement that he would like to get back into that universe, and that he has actually been talking to 20th Century Fox about this return. Singer spoke about how he loves Hugh Jackman and the rest of the cast, and especially how much he loves the ability to tackle real-world issues through the fun of science fiction and fantasy movies such as the X-Men films.

This of course doesn’t verify anything actually happening, but we now know that Singer is completely serious about wanting to do this, and nothing could be better sounding to the fans of the franchise. After he left, Brett Ratner then took over and directed the under-whelming X-Men: The Last Stand before Gavin Hood stepped in to do the equally questionable X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A return for Singer would be a chance to not only make another fun movie, but also for him to reacquire greatness, as any even decent movie would be praised over these last two offerings.

The tricky thing here is that Singer has recently become very busy. He’s expected to do a movie called Jack the Giant Killer next, and recently set up shop for a potential Battlestar Galactica movie as well. I’m sure if the right scenario played out, a fourth X-Men could leap frog a project or two, but a deal with Fox needs to be reached first.

  1. How can they possibly do a X-Men 4 movie when the main characters have been killed off. Cyclops, Jean Grey, Professor Xavier(transfered mind to someone else) They should not do this!!!!

  2. @Mark – Keep in mind it’s a series based on comic book characters. ANYONE can come back. Prof. X most certainly will, as the post credits of The Last Stand confirmed, which unfortunately, besides that and The Beast, was the only thing in my opinion the film had going for it.

    If Singer wants to get the gang back together again for a true, quality sequel to X2, I’ll go see it. Otherwise, I’m done. You can assure that SHIELD/Nick Fury will have presence in some shape or form.

  3. I’d rather this franchise just die and a reboot be made. Brian singer did do a good job but the last 2 installments are just crap in my oppinion.

  4. The last stand was a travesty in my opinion. If they could somehow pull a batman and ignore the past 2 films, i think it could be possible to save this franchise. If nick fury shows up i may have a joygasm!
