Default Re: Bryan Singer not directing X-Men: First Class?

Fox has known for a while that he was committed to Jack The Giant Killer, so why not just wait until he's done with that before speeding into First Class? The very reason many fans were excited for this X-Men prequel was because of the return of Singer.

Hopefully (if it's any good) they will keep Singer's story treatment and have him involved as a producer.

This could however be a blessing in disguise.In the La Times interview he seemed very keen on a X-Men 4 of some sorts so he could i guess start development on that and then move on to start production on that once he's finished with JTGK.

That's what i thought too.

With Singer not returning, I think it's more likely that Fox will be looking for something more long term than just one prequel. Maybe a string of prequels like we were discussing in the other thread, to maybe buy themselves time before having to make X-4. I think they should still do a Magneto movie and First Class before doing X-4 if that's the route they go, as was the original plan. String it out a bit.

well I guess somethings are to good to be true, *sigh* I so wanted Singer to continue on with what he started, but if Singer is going to be like Nolan is to the Superman reboot then I'm all for it!!!! He can produce, and have some input on the script and direction of the franchise...

Who cares about X-Men first class anyway? Singer should do X-4. That has a lot more potential then yet another prequel where Magneto is yet again the villain and we'll only get a handful of X-men. And not the most interesting X-men if you ask me

Singer said there was going to be a new villain and a bunch of new X-Men characters so this statement is incredibly flawed.

HitFix got the 'scoop'. It hasn't been confirmed or denied yet (although it is the weekend so nothing much happens).

It could easily be the case that Fox were talking with directors about Wolverine 2, and HitFix got it wrong. We may get some confirmation one way or another next week.

That news is a rumour... so far i dont believe it to be true. Not because im a fan of the franchise. Just the source of where this information came from.

And the problem with doing X-Men First Class is that they'll want to cater to the teenage/Disney craze by hiring pretty boys.

In that case the prequel would make even less sense. I thought the whole idea was to show how the Professor X/magneto relationship began, and how the prof formed teh original X-men. I would really like to know why Fox insits on making a prequel.

Yes, it will show the Xavier/Magneto friendship and how it went wrong. So, with Xavier/Magneto both on the same side, there would be need to be another antagonist, wouldn't there?

And why show only the basic original characters? There would be other characters who would go their separate ways by the time of X1. We've already seen a young Jean (in X3), a young Cyclops (in Wolverine) and also a young Emma Frost (in Wolverine), so there will probably be other students.

Why are you getting in such a tangle about it? It's painfully simple.

They're making a prequel because there is a backstory that could be told (because X1 began with an already-established team).

Really hope this isnt true, I'm not that keen on the idea of First Class and Singer was really the only reason I was on board with it, so if this news is true I dont think I will be on board, depends what we hear about it I suppose, but it is Fox afterall.

Either way, I do hope Singer does an X4.

Bollocks.
The very fact that you hang out on an xmen forum proves that you will be first in line to see first class, just like the rest of us.

It's X-Men 3 all over again. Why can't they just s*** out another Wolverine movie? That'll give singer a good amount of time.

Fox already is, and it is reportedly scheduled to begin shooting before First Class, which is why I'm somewhat confused by this news. Perhaps the studio is looking to release an X-Men related movie more than once every 3 years now.

That really seems like the best case scenario to me. I just really dont want Fox to ever touch a Marvel property again.

I dont hang out on here, I have barely visited the X-Boards for a long time, not to mention I have barely paid to see a Fox movie since X3, if we get another X3, which I believe first class will be without Singer, I guarantee I wont be going to see it, I have more important things to spend my money on.

So, i'm afraid, you will have to accept the 'i'm not gonna be on board' speech, sorry.

I wasn't excited for First Class anyways. I am much more happy that he is probably going to do X4.

Showing the Magneto and Professor X relationship suggests Magneto would play an X2-type role, not a villain. I don't see how showing the relationship means he has to be the main villain. I actually assumed from the start that whoever they face in this film will be the cause of their split. Some type of villain that convinces Magneto his differences with Xavier are irreconcilable.

And showing new mutants is open game considering how little has been established about the original team. The films have never said what the original team is so I don't see how adding any of that stuff makes this prequel not make any sense.

I think First Class had potential to be interesting but without Singer directing my interest is gone. We better get an X4 with him to make up for it.

Hey, I skipped Wolverine, FF2, Blade: Trinity etc. I don't support what I don't like.

Aw, Singer was the only reason I got happy about First Class, but I don't want him to walk away from Warner Bros. so I really am conflicted.

I agree. If Singer comes back, he should do X4 or Wolverine sequel.
