Bryan Singer
Bryan Singer has revealed Mark Millar, 20th Century Fox‘s consultant on Marvel movies, hasn’t had any input in his upcoming ‘X-Men‘ movie. The director – who is set to direct the upcoming superhero film which will unite cast members from the original film trilogy and 2011’s ‘X-Men: First Class’ – hasn’t had any conversations with the screenwriter, who was hired by movie studio Fox to oversee its Marvel Comics-based projects.

¬†Singer told BleedingCool.com: “I’ve not spoken to Mark Millar at all. He’s not involved. I don’t know what his role is about. All I know is that I have my own specific beliefs about how to take this universe forward.

“I started with the first ‘X-Men‘, then ‘First Class‘ and now I am combining them and I think it could go further than that and I have some ideas about that, so perhaps he should chat to me at some point.”

Comic book writer Millar – who has written many of the ‘X-Men‘ comics, as well as graphic novel ‘Kick-Ass‘ – previously praised the film’s script and hailed Singer for his direction of the ‘X-Men‘ cinematic franchise.

He said: “Of course, he is Mr. ‘X-Men‘ and he knows exactly how everything works. Just look at these first two ‘X-Men‘ movies – despite the huge cast of characters it all came together really well. These two movies never felt like overload and the balance was really, really good.

“On the other hand I though the third film felt crowded, but then Singer is excellent at working with ensemble casts. So with this one I feel it is all fine. I have read the screenplay and it doesn’t feel rushed and it doesn’t feel like it is too many characters.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ will star Sir Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender, Sir Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence.
