Disney's upcoming animated 'Star Wars Rebels' will explore a canon period between trilogies previously untouched by any scripted work, though most 'Star Wars' fans can scarcely look past the untapped future of J.J. Abrams' 'Episode 7.' Well, good news! 'Rebels' may yet contain our first look at the new trilogy, and we might not even realize it.

Writer-Producer Simon Kinberg on ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ and Tearing Down ‘The Last Stand’

DOFP

It's surprising to listen to a writer almost gleefully explain how he negated his past work, and such is the case with Simon Kinberg, who wrote and produced the time travel storyline of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' In 'Days of Future Past,' Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness is sent back to his younger, 1973 self, in an effort to prevent the mutant-killing Sentinels from ever being created. And, as time travel movies are wont to do, they can change what has come before. And one of those movies that came before, 'X-Men': The Last Stand,' was co-written by Kinberg.

There are some minor, non-specific spoilers in the below exchange with Kinberg (some much more specific ones will publish after the film's release), but he does dive into the psyche of a screenwriter who just may be undoing some of his own work.

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Creator Simon Kinberg Talks Classic Characters and Capturing the Tone of the Original Trilogy

Rebels

Not only did Simon Kinberg write and produce the upcoming superhero spectacular, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and its sequel 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and 2015's 'Fantastic Four' reboot -- he's also the creator and executive producer of 'Star Wars Rebels,' a new animated series that takes place between the events of 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope.' (Kinberg is also involved in the development of the yet-to-be-announced 'Star Wars' live action movies.)

Kinberg is currently promoting the aforementioned 'Days of Future Past,' but the subject of 'Rebels' did come up (okay, yes, because I asked about it) and Kinberg explains what it's like to write for characters who appeared in the original trilogy (it's rumored Lando Calrissian plays at least a small role) and threading the needle between the people who love the Original Trilogy and the people who love the prequels.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Writer Simon Kinberg Talks Possible Marvel TV Spinoffs

Whether or not 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has lived up to the hype of its cinematic brethren, there can be no arguing that 20th Century Fox's 'X-Men' franchise and Sony's 'Amazing Spider-Man' have looked to emulate the broad-spectrum success of 'The Avengers.' Might that mean that the 'X-Men' could spill into their own ongoing TV series after the events of 'Days of Future Past'? Writer-producer Simon Kinberg weighs in.

Fantastic Four Origin Story
Marvel

Remember that plot synopsis roaming the web a few months back stating the new 'Fantastic Four' reboot would imagine the crop of superheroes as government weapons? Director Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox have since come out to bash it for its falsity, but while we still have till 2015 to see the new vision for this comic book property, writer-producer Simon Kinberg won't leave us hanging.

We live in a world where every single video game, old TV show, cartoon and even toy line has become ripe for cinematic adaptation, and now card games are entering the fray. 'Magic: The Gathering' is one of the most popular card games ever made, so it's not surprising that 20th Century Fox is now working to bring it to the big screen on a scale that's already being compared to 'Lord of the Rings.'

X-Men Apocalypse Writers
20th Century Fox

Aside from the title, 'X-Men: Apocalypse' -- which already conjures a whole slew of presumptions -- little is known about the next installment of the 'X-Men' movie series following 'Days of Future Past.' But this could quickly change as Bryan Singer is hard at work on the script, and he's recruited the writers from 'X2' to hammer down the story.
