Bryan Singer Talks About First Class and More

Bryan Singer spoke recently with Heat Vision about his future plans, which include a nice Hawaiian Christmas and preliminary work on X-Men: First Class, a movie that he will work on after completing Jack the Giant Killer, itself already beginning the stages of visual development. The biggest revelation from Singer is that X-Men: First Class could obviate the need for a Magneto origin movie, which was already kind of on the rocks, since the two subject matters tend to converge. Singer explains himself:

This story would probably utilize some of the Magneto story because it deals with a young Magneto, so it might supersede that because this would explore that relationship between a young energetic professor and a disenfranchised victim of the Holocaust.

By “supersede” I assume that he means replace, but it’s difficult to tell if this is an official position within Fox based on conversations he’s had or simply his own opinion. Speaking of Fox, Singer claims that reports of their separation were greatly exaggerated, and he also talks about his other projects, Battlestar Galactica, which is presently looking for a writer, and Excalibur, which is entering negotiations.

Jacob is shy. That's why he hasn't filled out his profile page yet. Hopefully he'll read this and decide to replace it with something else. If not, he'll never know I'm making fun of him in his profile. Heh heh. - Nix

    Just stop.

    The first two X-Men flicks were fun, not completely true to the comics, but a lot of fun. The third SUCKED. The resulting spin-off was better than X-3, but really not very good either.

    Im sick of pre-quels and reinventing things with kids in the roles of comic icons. Pick a storyline – there are only a few bazillion to choose from – and adapt it to the film.

    Thats what fans want. Lets see a real Rogue story (she was a villain, dontcha-know) or a decent Storm story (with someone who can act) or bring on the aliens – or I know the Phoenix Saga!

    I would love to see a Sentinels movie – that would rock. Anything else, I think will just suck up the screen.
