Bryan Singer will next make 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which begins filming this fall, but the director isn’t done with the X-Men franchise yet. His newest addition to the series, X-Men: Apocalypse, opens in theaters this Friday, but he’s already expressed interest in continuing with the franchise, although whether he’ll direct another sequel is unconfirmed. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg revealed the next installment will take place in the ’90s, presumably following the latest recruits, and possibly the X-Men: First Class castmates if they decide to return.
But what about the original cast, the one Bryan Singer helped put together for the first X-Men film? Most of them appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but did that conclude their involvement with the franchise? Below, Singer says he’s interested in bringing back the original X-Men cast members, but only under the right circumstances.

At one time, it was believed to be nearly impossible for Spider-Man to end up on the big screen in the same movie with the Avengers. Thankfully, Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel Studios to share our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler so that he was able to appear in Captain America: Civil War before getting his own new franchise.
But one Marvel property that’s unlikely to be shared with Marvel Studios in the future is the X-Men. The franchise is going strong at 20th Century Fox (even though the early buzz on X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t very good), and they’re going to ride that wave as long as they can. Thankfully, one fan decided to imagine what it would be like if we got to see an Avengers vs X-Men movie thanks to some very clever editing.
