'X-Men 3' was the most disappointing installment of the entire franchise to date, with the exception of, perhaps, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine.' Director Bryan Singer, who helmed both 'X-Men' and 'X2,' was onboard 'The Last Stand' but dropped out right before production began so he could direct 'Superman Returns' instead. (Great choice, right?) This allowed Brett Ratner to step in and totally obliterate 'The Dark Phoenix Saga,' the comic book arc that served as the basis for the film. Now, more than eight years after 'X-Men 3' hit theaters, new concept art has leaked online to show us what we could've got if Singer were at the helm.

We're still reeling from Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' which initially looked like another X-disaster along the lines of 'The Last Stand,' but proved us so wrong with its incredible cast, story and special effects. While we wait for the film to hit DVD and Blu-ray in October, and 'X-Men: Apocalypse' to drop in (sigh) 2016, let's take a look at all the movie magic happening behind the scenes of the summer's epic X-Men movie in this VFX breakdown.
Bryan Singer has directed most of the 'X-Men' movies, with the exception of 'First Class' and the standalone Wolverine adventures. Despite the box office success of 'Days of Future Past,' however, his return as director for 2016's 'X-Men: Apocalypse' was in doubt. He's already working on the story, but could recent events prevent him from taking the reins? We finally have an answer, and it's that Singer will indeed be back to direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse.'
The "merc with the mouth" is finally coming to the big screen. After test footage of Ryan Reynolds doing his thing as the sword-wielding comic book figure surfaced online, 20th Century Fox announced that a 'Deadpool' movie will indeed be made, further spinning off the 'X-Men' cinematic universe. But the key question now remains is, will Reynolds himself pick up the reins once again?
San Diego Comic-Con always brings out the cream-of-the-crop cosplayers, who've worked tirelessly -- some even over the course of a few months -- to become their favorite geek-centric characters. But nothing during this year's convention was able to...
It's San Diego Comic-Con 2013, and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ stars Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan and Jamie Foxx are sitting next to their director, Marc Webb, on the Hall H stage, ready to face the thousands of comic book and movie fans in attendance during a Q&A. A kid, maybe in his late teens, makes his way up to the mic and addresses a question to Garfield himself. Identifying himself as a gay Asian American, he wanted to know if the actor felt any pressure in making his stance on LGBT equality known, referring to previous comments made by the actor.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is the most successful film of the franchise yet, and that's saying something, given all the moving parts within the story itself and the immense cast of new and returning stars. A few aspects from the original script were cut for this time-travel tale, mainly the deletion of Anna Paquin's major appearance as Rogue, but fans will get to see everything the original version had to offer through a director's cut.
We got our first taste of what's in store for the next 'X-Men' film, 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' in the post-credits scene for 'Days of Future Past,' which previewed the all-powerful villain in his early years in ancient Egypt. With a release date set for May 2016, director Bryan Singer and his writing team have been putting together the script, and while little is known about the plot, an Instagrammed photo of the current treatment reveals that The Four Horsemen will indeed have a part to play.
If you saw 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' this weekend, chances are you walked away with a couple of questions about that mysterious post-credits sequence. For fans unfamiliar with comic book canon, the identity of the character was a pretty big question mark (which is why you should read our handy guide), but there was one thing of which all of us were uncertain: just who the heck was that actor?
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' features the true big-screen debut of some of the most iconic villains in Marvel comics history: the mutant-hunting robots known as the Sentinels. Thanks to the film's time-traveling plot, we get to see two very different versions of these things in action. However, some newly released concept art gives us a glimpse at what they could have looked like.
