One Last ‘X-Men’ Movie With The Original Cast? Singer Hopes So


The conclusion of the “First Class Trilogy” premieres this weekend with X-Men: Apocalypse.  Fox’s X-Men franchise has been going strong for the past sixteen years.  With the latest film X-Men: Apocalypse, we continue to follow the younger versions of our favorite mutant heroes.  But what about the older ones?  Sure there was a hybrid performance in X-Men: Days of Future Past that linked the old and the new.  Plus we will also get to see Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart team up one last time in the upcoming thirds Wolverine solo film, but it seems we won’t have one last outing with the original cast.  Bryan Singer knows this as well and is thinking about getting the band back together.  This is partly due to the fact that the third original X-Men film, X-Me: The Last Stand did not perform as well as expected, and he wants to give the original cast some closure.

“I like finishing things. I like finishing this particular iteration. I know X-Men 3 was quite rushed and I didn’t complete it, and I felt a little like it was probably my responsibility to do that as a filmmaker, and I didn’t.”

Singer was recently asked about bringing the original cast back together.

“I hope so. I went and saw Patrick Stewart’s wife sing at a local venue with Ian McKellen. The two of us were sitting there watching Patrick’s lovely wife sing, and I was thinking, ‘yeah, at some point it would be lovely to see them all again.’ They’re all great actors and great people, and I had great experiences with them. I’d love to see that happen — it’s just you have to figure it out. How do you do that? You can’t do it for the sake of doing it, you have to do it right.”

How to bring them all together remains a mystery.  It seems that we’ve somewhat moved on to the new cast with the conclusion of X-Men: Days of Future Past, but a proper sendoff for those who pretty much kickstarted the new superhero film revolution would be a nice parting gift before having the new kids completely take it over.

Would you like to see the original cast in one last film?  Sound off in the comments.

    As much as like the original cast I don’t think we get a X-men movie with them again by the simple fact that Fox wants to put out as many X-men movies as they can and if the release dates of this recent trilogy(FC, DOFP, AP) serve as any reference we will probably get a new trilogy(4,5,6) done before 2022 and since the movies are jump 10 years each we can also assume we will get movie set in the 90s 2000s and 2010s and as such the original cast ins’t getting any younger.

    That said Fox has to decide if the will use aging technology to make McCavoy and Fassbender look older or use deaging tech on Patrick and Ian to have those characters (Prof X and Magneto) looki older(but not as old as Patrick and Ian look today) as they are supposed to in the 90s given the characters real ages and the timeline established in First Class. If the latter happens then we can see part of the original cast back.

    The next step for Fox if we get to X-men 5 in the 2000’s and X-men 6 in the 2010s is to bring the rest of original cast only if they wanna tie everything back to the “everything is good future” shown in DOFP otherwise just reshoot that ending with the new cast (new wolverine too) and done.

    the drop off of Apocalypse is gonna be huge next week, its a BVS situation here and FOX can only do so many stories with the Xmen on their own sooooooo many fans want Fox to co-make films with Marvel in the MCU. What if the Avengers film after Infinity Wars would be AVENGERS vs X-MEN?

  • Jay Reed

    I think one more some some original cast would be a good way to cleanly introduce Cable, Bishop, or Rachel Grey into an earlier time without causing continuity headaches for fans. You’d need time travel to get all five of the original x-men on the team at the same time anyway, the way the movies and actors have been staggered out.

    what needs to happen is the original cast should be in the next Avengers movie fighting Thanos,it would be a huge boost for both movie companies and Fox would get a huge boost in the next xmen movie

    Yes bring back OT !!! Fed up with movies setting in past!
    We wanted movies in present day like Deadpool movies.
    Bring Stewart, Marsden, Berry, Janssen, Grammer, Cudmore, Paquin, Ashmore, Ellen Page in one last movie setting in 2010’s. If Jackman and Cuumming dont want to return as Wolverine and Kurt then we will do without hthem
