Bryan Singer Hints At Marvel Mashup Movie After X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Bryan Singer is planning a "Marvel Mashup" movie after X-Men: Days of Future Past. Here's a look at who could show up in such a film - how about Deadpool, Wolverine and Silver Surfer for starters.

Marvel Mashup Movie Bryan Singer
Recently, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer was in attendance at The Fantasia International Film Festival where he disclosed some information on Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Cyclops. We previously covered that info but there was one peculiar item of note that slipped through the cracks. Reportedly, Singer told the crowd that he has plans for another Marvel movie after X-Men: Days of Future Past, one that sounds like it's going to combine a number of Marvel properties. He called the film a "Marvel Universe mash-up." It's probably a safe bet that Singer is sticking with 20th Century Fox and not helming a project for Marvel (although that is a possibility) so the obvious assumption is that he's possibly planning a team-up with the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Within those two film properties are rights to Silver Surfer, Deadpool and various spinoff X-Men teams, like X-Force, which was recently revealed to be in development with Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow working on the script. Would you be interested in seeing a "mash-up" of these characters? It's entirely possible that some of the Fantastic Four characters and locations could show up in Days of Future Past as the FF played a key supporting role in Chris Claremont's original comic book story.

Analyzing X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

"Days of Future Past" is a popular storyline in the Marvel Comics comic book The Uncanny X-Men issues #141 and #142, published in 1981. It deals with a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An adult Kate Pryde transfers her mind into her younger self, the present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.

The upcoming sequel to X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class is officially titled X-Men: Days of Future Past and will be directed by Bryan Singer, director of the first two X-Men films. Several actors from the past of the franchise are confirmed to return, including Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Halle Berry (Storm), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Shadowcat), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), and James McAvoy (Professor X). Newcomers Peter Dinklage (Trask) and Omar Sy (Bishop) have also joined the cast along with Fan Bingbing (Blink), Booboo Stewart (Warpath) and Evan Peters(Quicksilver)."

It seems like all this guy does is follow Marvel's tail

Could be good tough or he could screw it up

As if
MyNameIsGroot - 8/7/2013, 10:25 AM
nope ! the F4 films are so dumb ! just make DEADPOOL MOVIE READY
TheSuperguy - 8/7/2013, 10:27 AM
Just give us a good FF movie and a solo Deadpool movie. Then concentrate on keeping the X-franchise on track, by giving us The Wolverine 2 and a sequel to DOFP.
OldBenKenobi - 8/7/2013, 10:27 AM
Sure it could be cool. Sony is the most reasonable studio tbh so I'm still holding my breath for Spidey appearing in the FF or Avengers.
TopCat89 - 8/7/2013, 10:27 AM
Rather F4 goes back to Marvel then rebooted under Fox...but seeing F4 and X-men together could be great!

Doubt it's Marvel mashing up with Fox....could be wrong
TelaVizion - 8/7/2013, 10:27 AM
I only way I can see FF and X-Men mashing up, is if Beast needs to go to Reed to figure something out.... Or if Wolvie comes across Ben and they tussle a lil bit. Thats it.
Giznad - 8/7/2013, 10:27 AM
could be The Runaways.

Only if this was with MARVEL STUDIOS instead of FOX.....They just have this ugly streak where things don't go right. Plus the only characters you want to see any X-MEN team up with are all over @ MARVEL STUDIOS period.
thewonderer - 8/7/2013, 10:28 AM
Bryan Singer is a great director. Why do people continue to attack him?

Which pristine Marvel Studios directors are people comparing him to? Jon Favreau? the maker of Cowboys and Aliens? The rest of the Marvel directors either have NO film experience, TV film experience only, or have a filmography of shitty films alongside occasional good ones.
Christuffer - 8/7/2013, 10:28 AM
I'm starting to think that Bryan Singer legitimately gives a crap about these Marvel properties.

That's a good thing.
Chewtoy - 8/7/2013, 10:28 AM
No two parts of the Marvel Universe coexist more poorly than the Fantastic Four (Super-powers = Celebrity!) and the X-men (Super-powers = Shunned and feared!).

Nap60 - 8/7/2013, 10:29 AM
Good news guys. X men rights are going back to marvel in 2021.
fettastic - 8/7/2013, 10:29 AM
I'm not as stroked off as some of you are about having a mash-up. I mean, it's fine, whatever, but I'm not clamoring for it.

My big worry with a film like that is that there are so many characters that none of them are properly tended to and there's just a lot of Michael Bay-type destruction.

I'm sure that would make it visually spectacular, but without character development and a story with an emotional core to it, it just turns into a video game.
Giznad - 8/7/2013, 10:29 AM
And I don't care if I'm only speaking to myself here. PLEASE give us Michael Biehn as Cable. Please.
WarPig - 8/7/2013, 10:30 AM
Not sure what to think about this. I really don't like him as a director of Marvel related movies because he just doesn't understand the source material all that well. I really hope he doesn't screw up DOFP.
Reasonnnn - 8/7/2013, 10:30 AM
@NicolasCage1 I AM ALL FOR THAT.
Grayson7954 - 8/7/2013, 10:31 AM
it takes them a decade to realize, oh we have other characters. just copying marvels success, [frick] fox
NicolasCage1 - 8/7/2013, 10:31 AM
@Reasonnnn

Here is the evil Dr Doom laugh that I had practicing:

Malcopunch - 8/7/2013, 10:31 AM
I want a more detailing an origins of a Villain..imagine how cool it would be if we got a Movie based on the Comic Book Thanos Rising..that would be freaking fantastic..also Doctor Doom Movie..DO IT!!!
untipoconboina - 8/7/2013, 10:31 AM
The FF had no role in DOFPast, they starred in DOFPresent ;)
Rhysno1 - 8/7/2013, 10:33 AM
Can't the directors just slip into a coma until the rights revert?
Malcopunch - 8/7/2013, 10:34 AM
Sorry i meant "Movie" instead of "more"
CherryBomb - 8/7/2013, 10:34 AM
It would be great to see an Inhumans and Fantastic Four mash-up :(
Such a shame.
NicolasCage1 - 8/7/2013, 10:34 AM
I'm planning on being the first person in have a part in each Comic Book universe at the same time. Here are my present goals:

1) Dr Strange & a Raccoon's voice on Disney. (Almost ready to sign here)

2) Lex Luthor/Brainiac on DC. (It is a shame that Superman is already taken)

3) Dr Doom on Fox

4) Mysterio on Spider man.
Malcopunch - 8/7/2013, 10:35 AM
@Rhysno1 That's just horrible..
GreenLanternRulez - 8/7/2013, 10:36 AM
Just give us a leader Cyclops, a Deadpool that doesn't suck, and a film that gives us an amazing villain from the X-Universe (Apocalypse/Sinister?)
RamonSuarez - 8/7/2013, 10:37 AM
I [frick]ing hate this guy now and hate the idea that he could ruin FF too. Isn't it bad enough that Tim Story totally [frick]ed that franchise up before.
Malcopunch - 8/7/2013, 10:37 AM
I loved First Class but i am really not sure about Days of Future Past..
JordanKing - 8/7/2013, 10:37 AM
Every time i see his face i just want to punch him.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/7/2013, 10:38 AM
Its because no other studio will give him a chance to helm another one of their movies or spec scripts.
That's the only reason he's committing to the FoXMen.

Wait till he's offered another movie to [frick] up, he'll jump ship in a heartbeat.

We Ruin it Productions: Singer, Ratner and Boll.
NicolasCage1 - 8/7/2013, 10:39 AM
Singer is a fine sewing machine.

RamonSuarez - 8/7/2013, 10:40 AM
Fox can have Doom and the FF .

Just give Marvel Silver Surfer and Galactus.
DudeGuyMan - 8/7/2013, 10:40 AM
Don't toy with me Singer!
thewonderer - 8/7/2013, 10:40 AM
X-Men would be an insanely difficult project for anyone to tackle.

Which directors, who are good at ensembles, mind you, would be better for it? Singer works best with ensembles and that's why X-Men is his thing.

Could Cyclops or Rouge have been better? Sure. But what is the matter with Xavier, Magneto, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, etc.?

People act like this is such an easy thing to do. Not everyone in X-Men will be able to get equal screen time or character. That's the flaw in an ensemble.
