Default Re: X-Men: Days of Future Past Countdown Thread

The funny thing is that Bryan Singer wasn't interested in making any movie based on a comic book before and found Comics as unintelligent literature (ironic for somebody that later adapted 2 of the most popular comic book franchise to the cinema ), and he turned down the oportunity to direct X-Men three times, until he actually saw the 90s cartoon and read the comics, then the themes of prejudice resonated with him and he finally accepted. (His opinions of comic books probably changed too)

His ideas for X-Men 3 were actually very cool and respected more the original comics, Cracked even made an article about that, fortunatelly now we have Bryan Singer and Matthew Vaughn working on future X-Men films, and The Wolverine doesn't seem bad either, anyway
