While X-Men: The Last Stand definitely has its fans, the primary consensus was that folks would've preferred X-Men and X2 director Bryan Singer behind the camera to complete the trilogy he started, which began with a very impressive origins film and continued with what some claim to be one of the greatest comic book films ever made. Unfortunately at the time, Singer gave up directing duties on The Last Stand to Brett Ratner in order to helm Superman Returns -- a move that kinda came back to bite him in the ass on not just one front, but two.
Now, though, Singer is talking to 20th Century Fox about returning to the franchise that's given him the most success as a filmmaker. Speaking at Korea's Pusan International Film Festival, Singer said, "I'm still looking to possibly returning to the 'X-Men' franchise. I've been talking to Fox about it." He added, " I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast." While The Hollywood Reporter doesn't mention any specific X-Men films, back in August it was reported that Singer was potentially interested in directing the upcoming X-Men: First Class film, though the Wolverine sequel is also currently without a director. Either way I'm sure fans would welcome him back to the franchise with open arms, hearts and minds.
If it was up to you, which upcoming X-Men film would you like to see Singer helm? First Class, Wolverine 2 or a big X-Men reunion film?
