Bryan Singer is directing X-MEN: FIRST CLASS!

http://screenrant.com/x-men-first-cl...ge-kofi-38335/

Bryan Singer just leaked that he’s directing the next X-men Origins film on the AVATAR “blue carpet”. What do you think about that? Yep. “X-Men First Class” will be an “Origins” film. He said he just sealed the deal with the studio.
This could very well be a prank or rumor, but in the interim: Squeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal.

Very cool. Not as cool as "Bryan Singer directs the Dark Phoenix saga" would have been, but cool nevertheless.

After what he did to Superman I am wary. but his X-men movies were good. We'll see. But why be an origins thing though? there are other lots of stories to tell, no?

I'm hoping the next development is "It's not a prequel, it's the real X-Men 3"....

If it turns out to be good, I can set the DVD on my shelf next to the first two X-Men movies and it *will* be X-Men 3

Hmm...who here wants to bet that Wolverine will still be involved with this movie somehow.

What? Too cynical?

Bryan Singer is mentioned there too & what it will be about...

Do we trust it?
Wikipedia? What's not to trust?

Of course you should trust Wikipedia. It's the cardinal source of all knowledge. Well, Wikipedia and IMDB. If we didn't have IMDB, we wouldn't have been able to find about Leslie Hope's cameo as Aunt Carol on 24. (Too obscure?)

If only...

That being said, I'm not all that interested, but I'll wait and see.

I'll believe it when I hear some sort of official confirmation, but if it's true... cool.

X-3 already showed digitally de-aged Xavier and Magneto recruiting a young Jean Grey in flashback.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine showed digitally de-aged Xavier rescuing young Scott Sommers, Emma Frost, and other mutants from William Stryker. Young Storm was originally supposed to be included (and was in the trailer), but wasn't in the final film. Jason Stryker was in the film and being kept on ice by his father, but the elder Stryker could bring him to Xavier for help or as a means of infiltrating the school. They could have Gambit back if they wanted as an older mutant.

Since Magneto can still be allied with Xavier at this point, you could include Magneto's children Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch as students. The film could focus on Xavier and Magneto's ideological split and the formation of the Brotherhood and the X-Men. It would also give the opportunity for other later members of the Brotherhood to start out as allies at Xavier's Academy (Mystique for example).

Banshee could appear (father of X-2's Siryn and his name was shown on the computer screen Mystique scrolls through). You could have friends Black Tom and Juggernaut appear in origin stories challenging their respective relatives Banshee and Xavier.

You wouldn't want to do all of those different origin stories together obviously, but one or two could be easily combined into a compelling movie plot.

I don't really want to see Patrick Stewart in bad CGI de-aging makeup for the THIRD time.
