In fascinating conversation with IGN, X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer hinted at the possibility of undoing the events of Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand, using the prequel universe as an alternate timeline.
IGN: One thing that’s interesting about the alternate universe/timeline in Days of Future Past is that it could potentially give you the opportunity to revisit things that happened in the third film in terms of characters and endings that you might like to see changed.
Bryan Singer: You mean, what you’re politely saying is, “fix shit.” Is that what you’re saying? That’s what I’m hearing. [Laughing]
IGN: [Laughing] Maybe…
Singer: There’s going to be a little of that, a few things I can repair.
IGN: Are fans going to be pleased with these things you will be repairing?
Singer: I think so, I think so, yes.
IGN: As a fan of this world too, though, do you want to see Scott and Jean return? Because it’s what everyone is thinking. That we want to see them return, you know?
Singer: Who wouldn’t? Who wouldn’t? [Laughing] That’s all I can say.
More importantly for fanboys, maybe we’ll get a decent Juggernaut, another shot at Gambit, and an all-ice Iceman.
