Bryan Singer Wishes He Had Stayed On & Directed ‘The Last Stand’

With X-Men: Apocalypse just around the corner, Bryan Singer recently sat down to chat with Fandango. They got to talking about The Last Stand, and Singer made a comment about wanting to have done things differently:

“I like finishing things. I like finishing this particular iteration. I know X-Men 3 was quite rushed and I didn’t complete it, and I felt a little like it was probably my responsibility to do that as a filmmaker, and I didn’t. I might not have killed all those characters. But that’s what was so fun about Days of Future Past. We had a joke on set: ‘Hey Bryan, you’re not only directing Days of Future Past — you’re actually living it!’ I was going back and making changes in history. [With X-Men: The Last Stand], I don’t fault anyone, including myself. It was just that circumstances didn’t allow for it to happen.”

Next to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the third installment of the X-Men trilogy was the most disappointing in the franchise. It would’ve been interesting to see how Singer would’ve done the Dark Pheonix plot differently, and maybe after Apocalypse we’ll get to see his vision come to the big screen.


What do you guys think? Do you want to see a Singer-directed Dark Pheonix saga? Are you someone in the minority group of individuals who liked The Last Stand? Let us know in the comments as well as on our Twitter and Instagram!
