Today I just read some rumors going around that Bryan Singer may be in talks to direct another X-men or X-men related movie! I hope that these rumors turn out to be a reality because X-men 3 and Wolverine were less than impressive movies. It actually made me mad when I heard Singer bowed out of X-men 3 to make Superman Returns. Really you choose Superman over the X-Men?!! Are you mad?!! Then I became even more upset when I heard he turned down the solo Wolverine movie, which had to easily be one of the worst superhero movies ever made. I personally rather melt my brain by wacthing the wretched Nick Cage “Ghost Rider” than sit through the steaming terd that Wolverine was.
Anyway it seems that perhaps Singer is regretting his past mistakes and wants to do justice to the mess that was left behind for him. Lets hope he chooses to return to the X-men franchise and reunites the original cast rather than one of the upcoming spin-offs. I guess however at this point I’ll take what I can get! Here’s a little bit of what was repoted about this at Moviehole.net:
“There’s a lot happening with the X-Men – there’s spin-off’s in the works (“Magneto”, “The First Class”, “Deadpool”), sequels to spin-off’s (“Wolverine 2”), and even rumours of a third sequel to Singer’s smash-hit “X-Men”. Thus, Singer’s looking to Rothman for his next meal.
And why wouldn’t Fox let Singer defect!? He did, after all, near single-handedly give life to the studio’s steady roster of comic-book movies.
“I’m still looking to possibly returning to the ‘X-Men’ franchise. I’ve been talking to Fox about it,” The Hollywood Reporter quoted Singer as saying at South Korea’s Pusan International Film Festival. “I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast,” he said.
Singer, whose most recent film was the Tom Cruise vs. Hitler drama “Valkyrie”, said the “X-Men” series, which follows a group of mutants with superpowers who struggle to fit in with humans, is about tolerance and social structures.
He said he likes to “trick audiences into thinking they’re seeing fireworks, but they’re learning about themselves and listening to what I have to say.”
“The excitement about working in science fiction and fantasy is – the stories, if they are good, are about the human condition,” Singer said.”
Let’s hope this doesn’t blow over and we see Singer once again bring life into this dying Franchise…
