Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion)
I think they stoped it as a trilogy because they lost Bryan.
on X2 dvd, both actors and Bryan teased about doing X3 and X4, and on and on.
Im sure if Bryan would have stayed, he would have done a fourth one, at least.
The plan was to go as far as the audience wanted. The sad thing is that the audience wanted more, but they lost the creator of the franchise and made a dissapointing third part. So they didnt feel confident enough to keep goin.
Pretty sad, knowing the potential of this universe and seeing now that Bryan has always been interested in returning.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
* 2017- X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Edit: Forget about 2017:
Official announcement -> X-MEN: APOCALYPSE - MAY 27, 2016!!!!
