Im sure if Bryan would have stayed, he would have done a fourth one, at least.
The plan was to go as far as the audience wanted. The sad thing is that the audience wanted more, but they lost the creator of the franchise and made a dissapointing third part. So they didnt feel confident enough to keep goin.
Pretty sad, knowing the potential of this universe and seeing now that Bryan has always been interested in returning.
I think there would still have come a time when Bryan was unable to do an X-Men film because he wanted to make another movie and perhaps take a break from the X-Men. But it would have been better if he had made X3 first, then gone to make SR or whatever else.
