I want to be excited but there is something encoded into my DNA that tells me not to believe a word Millar says

Even though Bryan Singer's last two films weren't a critical success (Superman Returns and Valkyrie). I still feel confident that will do a great job with DOFP and ughh, I'm so excited that he's finally directing another X-Men movie!

You mean commercial? Both fared well with critics. In fact, Singer only has two "rotten" films over at that site, and they were both pretty early in his career.

That's not exactly true.You need to listen to some outside of whinning fanboys on
message boards.Superman Returns has a 76 percent fresh on RT.Hardly a failure.
It made 397 Million worldwide.At one point It was going to get a sequel.And when they
decided to reboot they actully asked Bryan to do It.

Much of the bashing of Bryan Singer is because of those who didn't like Superman returns,and due to the marvel studios fanboys who think If It Isn't done by MS and Isn't like MS would do It It much be crap Ignroing he fact MS wouldn't be here today If not for X-Men.Even Kevin Feige has said X-Men was one of the 2 most important films to acheive what Marvel Is today.

The movies I mentioned got a decent rating on Rotten Tomatoes but I don't think people loved those movies.

The point I keep making Is Superman returns was not a batman and Robin
fiasco.It made money close to what batman begins made.

SR-200 million domesticly.Batman Begins-205 Million Domesticly
overseas It actully did slightly better than Begins.

Those who whine on the internet about It are not speaking for everyone.
There were people in the GA and critics who liked It.

If anything returns should be called a underperformer not a bomb.wB wanted a 500 Million worldwide grossing film.

And Valkrie made 80 Million domesticly.Let's remember this was at time when
It was still questable rather Tom Cruise could sell a movie anymore.When
It was announced he was going to do first class some said online they wish he would do my ensemble pieces like The Usual Suspects and Valkrie.

Yes, SR was definitely an underperformer. It's a heartfelt, nicely-crafted film (except for a few bits) but the problem lay with flawed writing and ideas.

Valkyrie is fairly forgettable, to be honest. It needed a grittier approach rather than Singer's careful, restrained touch.

Likewise, DoFP shouldn't be too careful. We need to see mutants on the run in a warzone-style stituation.

I actually dug the 2nd half of Valkyrie. Rather would watch that then Superman Returns anyday. Only thing I really liked in SR were the intro credits.

I actually really liked Valkyrie. It managed to build up great suspence despite the fact that you know the outcome of the plot.

Rotten Tomatoes ratings don't mean all that much IMO, they can only tell you how the movie was received initially on its release, rather than how the movie is considered in a long run once the hype and noise have died down.

Sorry but Valkyrie sucked. And SR was mediocre at best. Still I'm excited for a Singer directed DOFP, which shouldn't make sense.

I've pretty much have enjoyed all of Singer's films, with The Usual Suspects and X2 being my absolute favorites. One considered one of the best crime thrillers of all time and the other IMO, the best Marvel film.

I just love his take on X-Men and the way he approached it. Like modern, contemporary, sci-fi thrillers.

It really lends itself well to the X-Men universe and stands apart from other Marvel films, where they opt for more of a live-action comic book feel (which is also an equally valid approach).

So,I'm guessing if they start shooting in April and the release date is July this time they'll have plenty of time to get it right since XMFC started shooting in late August with a June release date.Right?

Nooooo I was really hoping they would leave it as-is with whatever Vaughn and Goldman had added...

But shooting in Montreal, this is very very good news. I wonder if they will do any filming at all in the UK? I feel like the Estate they chose for FC should definitely be used again as its exterior was featured so much in the film. Not to mention there really aren't any castles in Montreal. None that would suit the X-Mansion anyway. If he's going Canadian, the Vancouver mansion he used in 1 and 2 would work better than anything in Montreal. If he's going for futuristic scenes it's interesting that he would use Montreal instead of Toronto.

I think Hayter has moved on. Everytime he is quoted speaking about X-Men he sounds very bitter about it all.

It can be cheaper to film In Canada.WIth the the big ambatas event Days of future Past Is they can do even more shooting In Canada.hey ca make their 175 Million budget look
like a 200 Million+ budgeted film.

We also got word Kinberg Is polishing up script under Singer's supervision.Also remember rewrites were still going on both X-Men and X2 as they were filming.If Singer Isn't happy with script he will keep rewrites going.

yeah, have just seen an interview to Bryan on 2011 and he said even if he works with someone else's script, he likes to make it its own.

I wonder if they're going to completely abandon Pinewood, though. Didn't they save a lot of the First Class sets?

As long as the dialogue is better than in X1-2. "Mutant and proud" gets a lot of flak but in general the dialogue in FC was much better and much more realistic than anything the old trilogy offered. Or Superman Returns. Yikes.
