Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some exciting news for us X-MEN fans (yes, this is AICN... I know it's looked a lot like SUPERHERO HYPE these last few days, but I can assure you you're in the right place!!!) This idea of doing X3 and X4 back to back has been kinda rumbling around for a while and now we have the below email. I've contacted some of my Top Level sources at Fox and while they won't go on record, they confirmed to me that this is definitely the direction Bryan Singer is headed in. Exciting times! While Alffred below thinks this may be a way of making sure Hugh Jackman stays around for a few more films, I tend to believe they're attacking the Phoenix Saga, as alluded to at the end of X2, and wanting to do all the Phoenix stuff at once. Could this be Phoenix for X3 and Dark Phoenix for X4? Or Dark Phoenix for X3 and the rebirth of Jean Grey in X4? So many possibilities!!!
Long time... Well you know the rest.
Talked to an old friend back in Vancouver BC who I went to high school with and haven't spoken to in a few years. He called on a completely unrelated matter and we just started yaking and catching up.
He owns a metal supply shop and has supplied metal and crews to a few movie and TV productions in the Vancouver area including X-Men 2.
He indicated to me that he's already signed the contract to do the same for X-Men 3 and then mentioned the contract would carry over to X-Men 4 which would film back to back with #3.
I have no idea if this is true but with Hugh Jackman indicating he doesn't want to do Wolverine forever I could sort of see them wanting to do this.
Anyways, just thought you'd might find this interesting.
If you use it just call me Alffred.
