Bryan Singer Talks X-MEN 3 And X-MEN: DOFP; "Ellen Page Was Something I Liked..."

X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer talks more about how he felt after seeing X-Men: The Last Stand and reiterates his plans to fix a few things (as well as revealing that he liked Ellen Page enough to bring her back for this movie). He also talks about humour in the "inbetweenquel".

We've heard a lot from Bryan Singer about his plans for X-Men: Days of Future Past while he's been doing the rounds promoting Jack the Giant Slayer, but Bleeding Cool managed to get more out of the director in regards to his feelings about Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand and what the upcoming "inbetweenquel" will do to fix some of the more controversial decisions that were made in that movie. Singer also tells a pretty interesting tale about how he ended up seeing the follow-up to his two X-Men instalments, while also reiterating his plans to fix a few things in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hopefully that will include bringing back James Marsden as Cyclops...


X-Men 3 was a strange situation for me. I didn’t have anything to do with X-Men 3 or Wolverine except for the actor. I don’t think Brett [Ratner] knows this but I was so emotionally charged up about seeing X-Men 3 that someone who wasn’t supposed to took me into a building in the middle of the night and showed me it long before it was finished, on a computer, just so I could see it, understand what it is and not be freaked out when I went to the theatre to go see it.

[Eventually] I went to the Chinese theatre because I wanted to see it in a big theatre and they let me in, I had a baseball cap on, I hid in the back but suddenly, Brett Ratner shows up. He was like “Bryan!” and suddenly the audience [all see me] and Brett Ratner talking and I’m stood there sipping my soda out of a Superman cup.

There are parts of X-Men 3… it isn’t what I would have done, but parts of it, I liked. Ellen Page was something I liked in X-Men 3 and I’m bringing her to Days of Future Past. Certain things are different. There was a lot going on in it and I wasn’t so happy with so many people dying, but then there were some really sweet moments with that kid, the cure kid.

I said I’ll “fix a few things” [with Days of Future Past]. It won’t be its primary function but there will be some fixing. It’s a really cool story, and incidentally, it facilitates all of these characters. They weren’t just thrown in there. And they all play a fun role. I want there to be some humour and some fun. In Days of Future Past there are some genuinely things in it. I can’t wait, and I know they will be fun to shoot. I want to keep that humour [because] the thing about X-Men is that the themes are serious, but the film doesn’t need to be…
