Bryan Singer‘s first two X-Men movies are generally very well-regarded. They were so well-regarded, in fact, that Singer was given the keys to the biggest superhero of them all: Superman, leaving the door open for Brett Ratner to direct the third film, X-Men: The Last Stand. The results were disappointing. The Last Stand looked like an X-Men film, but the script was all over the place, killing major characters and all but destroying the franchise. Thankfully, Matthew Vaughn swooped in to fixed much of the damage with the reboot X-Men: First Class.
The 2014 sequel to that film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, brings Singer back into the director’s chair with the very unique opportunity to doing a sequel to a reboot of your own franchise that’s also going to tie into the original franchise. Say that five times fast.
In a new interview, Singer admits that The Last Stand had some problems and X-Men: Days of Future Past will fix some of them in a way that’s satisfying for fans. He also talks about the balance between the original and First Class characters, the potential to start a X-Men Cinematic Universe, Jean Grey and Cyclops returning and much more. Read More »

Now, however, Singer has put that idea to rest as well. While the filmmaker still won’t reveal Dinklage’s part, he’s dropped a few bare hints in a recent interview. Hit the jump to learn more.
