Yes, I realize we’re late on this one, as it was announced yesterday, but due to the juggernaut (bitch) that was the STAR WARS announcement, and real life concerns, I wasn’t able to get to this until now. Deadline reports that Bryan Singer has signed on the line that is dotted for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, bringing him back into the franchise that he made such a mark on.
Singer making the next X-MEN movie is definitely welcome news – many fans still consider X2 to be the best of the franchise, although I’m pretty partial now to FIRST CLASS and DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be continuing that story arc began in the last movie. It’s expected that Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy to return, and this movie will likely link the prequels to Singer’s and Brett Ratner’s movies.
I’m even more curious now about THE WOLVERINE based on some of the news coming from that set, and the teaser poster looks like something Mondo would do, so I think this franchise is definitely back on track. I’m pleased that Singer is returning to the franchise that has treated him so well, and I’m very excited to see this very popular story come to the screen in a way that should make fans happy.
