Default Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1

and yeah maybe fans feel yeah they can bring jean and scott back and maybe could give colossus more developement ect ect but from the point of view of fox and singer, vaughn or whoever i don't know if they would really do something like that? these characters are not really important to casual audiences who may see the film, infact if they start undoing things and changing things back and forth at some point audiences will just give up on the films

and like i said i know saying this won't be popular and most will think its crap and yeah ok X4 can be done but realistically you would need a clean slate to start from, and pretty much also why i don't think any of the X3 characters will return for DOFP, esp with the horrible way X3 treated the characters and how vaughn and singer not really liking X3
Even if we'd have had Singer's X3, Jean would be dead (in physical form, anyway, as his story had Cyclops killing her and the Phoenix evolving into a higher form, a cosmic consciousness).

Some believe Singer may not want to acknowledge X3 or work with any of its actors, and in some ways that's understandable. But, then again, the different directors brought into later films in other series (like Bond, Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games and the Marvel films) have had to work with actors they didn't cast and sets/locations they didn't choose and plot points they may not have wanted if they had the choice.

I don't mind what they choose to do with the films as long as they put some sort of masterplan in place for what's coming next and as long as we get well-made movies.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
