Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 3
Xavier and Magneto were NEVER leads in this series until McAvoy and Fassbender played them. That's not going to change.
And Lawrence has been a huge a list star for some time now. Her name was buzzed because of Winters Bone and the oscar nom. Then her status skyrocketed after Hunger Games. How did she follow that? By proving she's a bonefied box office draw by opening a poorly reviewed film where she was the sole lead to a #1 box office hit. Then she once again scored a lead role to huge box office numbers AND a lead actress Oscar win. Next to Jackman, she's the biggest star in DoFP. This was true before her win tonight, and after her win it can be written in stone.
