The studio is clearly not against the concept of rebooting if it's necessary.
The cannon logic can't be applied exclusively here because Xavier was f***ing vaporized by Dark Phoenix in X3. And he got a funeral. LOL And yet Patrick Stewart is signed on for Days Of Future Past soooo...never say never.
People should remember: it's allll about what's best for box office
...oh, and the story
-- and when you can get these two elements reasonably in sync, as Singer seems to be doing with FOX, then there is potential for something special.
was simply not the hit that FOX wanted it to be.
But that also
doesn't mean that FOX/Singer are going to mortgage a portion of their bank vault just to get Halle Berry back.
How do you improve while retaining elements that make the franchise unique? Getting Singer back into the fold (and into the director's chair) is the first step. Even he now realizes how well he fits into this universe. It doesn't mean an automatic reprisal of every single cast member or familiar element, though.
And no, he won't be using Rat's "back door" excuse for Xavier's survival...count on something completely different, here.
