Bryan Singer Would Like To Return To X-Men Franchise

The first two X-Men films are a couple of my favorite comic book movies ever (I still think X-Men 2 is THE best comic book movie of all time… but that’s just me) thanks to one of my favorite directors Bryan Singer.

Singer (who also directed the amazing The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil and Valkyrie) left the X-Men universe to pursue another dream project of his… Superman Returns (which, even though I know most people disliked it, I thought was brilliant)

But it may appear that Singer is looking to get back into the X-Men franchise. Coming Soon gives us this:

“I’m eternally intertwined with X-Men now,” he told them. “What takes an audience four hours to watch – the first two movies – took six years of my life. So, to not be part of it….It’s a shame.” They also asked Singer whether he wished he had directed the third “X-Men” movie, to which he replied, “It’s weird for me to watch it, because I’m so close to the universe. And also Brett is a good friend of mine. But, of course, I would love to return to that universe.”

I’m one of the few people who didn’t hate X-Men 3 (directed by Rush Hour director Brett Ratner), it was clearly the weakest of the 3 X-Men movies, but I still thought it was “OK” (seeing Beast fight was awesome). With that being said, I would LOVE to see Singer returns to the X-Men universe, even if it’s just for a Magneto origins.
