Bryan Singer


'I'm still looking to possibly returning to the 'X-Men' franchise. I've been talking to Fox about it,' the director of the first two 'X-Men' movies shares.

Director Bryan Singer has not only expressed his interest to return to the "X-Men" franchise, but also has talked about it with 20th Century Fox. The 44-year-old filmmaker, who has helmed the first two "X-Men" movies, revealed the matter at South Korea's Pusan International Film Festival, as reported by The Associated Press.

"I'm still looking to possibly returning to the 'X-Men' franchise," the director who passes on "X-Men: The Last Stand" to make "Superman Returns" confessed during a panel discussion with South Korean director Kim Ji-woon at the festival. He quickly added, "I've been talking to Fox about it."

The director who gained recognition through his work in "The Usual Suspects" also shared why he enjoyed making sci-fi and fantasy movies. "The excitement about working in science fiction and fantasy is - the stories, if they are good, are about the human condition," Singer said, adding he likes to "trick audiences into thinking they're seeing fireworks, but they're learning about themselves and listening to what I have to say."

Currently, there are a number of "X-Men" spin-offs in the work from "X-Men: First Class" to "Wolverine 2", a sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Besides, "X-Men 4" is rumored to be considered. During a press junket for the DVD/Blu-ray release of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", producer Lauren Shuler Donner admitted to have plans for the fourth film.
