An interesting rumor has surfaced today, but it is not necessarily one that is too shocking. According to Umberto Gonzalez (aka elmayimbe) formerly of Latino Review, he is hearing that after Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and James Mangold’s Wolverine 3, Singer’s X-Men film universe that began in 2000 with X-Men, will come to a close. With many of the original actors’ contracts expired or expiring, there isn’t really anywhere else for this franchise to go in its current form.
Now this certainly doesn’t mean Fox will be giving the X-Men back to Marvel, but it does seem that a major reboot will be coming to the franchise. Could this mean we are finally going to get a proper representation of the X-Men? One can hope. With Deadpool coming to theaters next year and a Gambit film on the horizon too, it does seem like we could be seeing some change in the right direction.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released on May 27, 2016, and Wolverine 3 is set for a release on March 3, 2017
#RUMOR I'm being told that X-MEN: APOCALYPSE & WOLVERINE 3 will mark the end of the Bryan Singer X-MEN universe he started back in 2000. Makes sense since Hugh Jackman also said Wolverine 3 will be his last film playing Logan. The end of an era. #XMEN #APOCALYPSE #Wolverine #bryansinger #HughJackman
