Bryan Singer passed on the opportunity to direct X-Men: The Last Stand but still feels a connection to the franchise in which he has directed 50% of its films.
In speaking at South Korea’s Pusan International Film Festival, Singer confirmed that he is currently talking to Fox about the possibility of returning to the franchise. In his words, “I’m still looking to possibly returning to the ‘X-Men’ franchise. I’ve been talking to Fox about it.”
The X-Men franchise has a crowded potential slate with a Deadpool spin-off, X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 and Magneto Origins story expected to be next in line. Singer could potentially tackle one of these known projects or continue the core X-Men story after the events of The Last Stand.
