The director of Superman Returns on whether he's disappointed about not getting the opportunity to make a sequel and if he's looking forward to Man of Steel. Plus, he abstractly speaks about the interpretation of the X-Men in Days of Future Past.

Bryan Singer is glad the "giant-sized" pressure currently lodged firmly on the shoulders of Zack Snyder is not on him. Speaking to Total Film, Singer shares his feelings about not getting the opportunity to make a sequel to Superman Returns. Plus, there's a small bit of discussion about X-Men:Days of Future Past revealed in the conversation. Here's what Singer had to say about his take on Superman and his third X-Men film.
“If this was a few year ago, I might have [felt disappointed] - but so much time has passed. I’ve done two movies [since Superman Returns], I’ll be on my third movie now in the [X-Men] universe… so whilst it would have been nice then, now I’m actually genuinely looking forward to seeing Zack [Snyder]’s movie [Man Of Steel]. At my heart I’m a fan. I’ve always been a fan.)

“The original Superman movie was the one that educated me - the first act of Donner’s Superman was what inspired me to take X-Men so seriously. Now I get to go see a Superman movie and I don’t have to fucking make it! [laughs] They’re not easy! He’s not an easy character!

“I got very nostalgic with my movie but even if you take it in another direction it’s very challenging… inherently he’s such a good guy… what’s easier about X-Men is that they’re all so conflicted. What’s going to be interesting in the next X-Men movie is that the characters are incredibly polarised.”
