Asked about future plans for the “X-Men” series in light of the upcoming ‘First Class’ prequel/reboot, Bryan Singer tells IGN UK says he’s open to the idea of Wolverine popping up should they go ahead with a sequel.
“I think there would definitely be room. I think it would be a very exciting thing. This universe has to establish itself first, but that would be a very interesting and fun thing” he says.
The comments differ from producer Lauren Shuler Donner’s remarks that a fourth “X-Men” film following the events of “X-Men: The Last Stand” would likely be the next project.
More likely they and the atudio are waiting to see the returns on ‘First Class’. Should it do as well or better than current series box-office high mark ‘Last Stand’ ($100M U.S. opening, $459M worldwide gross), I wouldn’t be surprised if X4 talk quietly fades into the background.
