Default Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion) - Part 2

Singer did say he was going to fix s*** from the Last Stand and I know Jean and Scott is one of those mistakes that Fox and Ratner should never have done in the first place. I remember back in the day that Fox didn't want Jean and Scott in X3 even though Singer planned on making X3 and X4 back to back and this pissed off Singer that he left to do Superman Returns. Maybe its just a rumour or maybe its one of the reasons why Singer couldn't make the X Men movie that he wanted but that's what I heard way back then.
Two things:
1) I don't believe Singer has actually said he was going to use DoFP to 'fix things' from any of the existing films
2) Scott and Jean's deaths are neither a mistake or something to be 'fixed'; they are a legitimate creative decision that made sense within the context of The Last Stand's story, regardless of whether or not you personally thought they should've happened.

As for the deaths being an 'F-U' by FOX, I think whoever told you that is full of crap.
