I mean, what the f***?!? The timing couldn't have been more terrible.
Therefore, I have a feeling that Bryan wants to fix Scott's death in Days Of Future Past
if it's possible.
Uh... yeah, sure. Right before he was very notably "kicked off" the FOX lot, Singer made sure to write a special decree to Tom Rothman that said "MAKE SURE CYCLOPS SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES." Yes, Singer consciously made a choice to cast Marsden in SR only
so that he could take him away from Rothman and X-Men and make X3 that much worse
. Yes, Singer is the root of all evil in 2005/06.
And Rothman, being the stand-up guy he was known exactly to be, honored Singer's request implicitly, through his uber-mind control over X3's quote-unquote "director," who would not be swayed by any other studio boss.
