It seems that the filmmaker who first brought us mutants might return to the franchise after all. Geek Files recently reprinted an interview that Total Film conducted with director Bryan Singer, who revealed that he might be interested in directing X-Men Origins: Magneto.
“Possibly. The only thing that concerns me about Magneto is that if the prequel were to follow the track I used in X-Men, which is Magneto’s history in the concentration camp, then I’ve lived in that world
“Apt Pupil, X-Men and now Valkyrie…I’ve lived in that Nazi universe for quite a while. I just might need to take a little break before I do something like that.”
Singer also wasn’t sure about directing a Superman Returns follow-up as well.
“I don’t know, I don’t know. There are still issues…I just…I just don’t know. I don’t necessarily…I don’t know. It’s one of those things where…It’s so weird talking about stuff unless I’m about to ramp up and shoot it.”
