Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion) - Part 2
^ Why does every single person who brings up this idea not realize one simple truth? Any creation of a ST'09-style alt timeline scenario will invalidate The Wolverine, which is not something FOX would let Singer do even if he wanted to.
The reason? It's not good business to release a movie - standalone though its story might be - have audiences pay to see said movie, then turn around a year later and say 'you remember that movie we released last year?' It happened in a completely different universe'.
