CinemaBlend – Bryan Singer Hints About Peter Dinklage’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past Character
“He’ll be himself. Not that he’ll be playing Peter Dinklage, he’ll be playing this character. It’s not a shy character. He’s just such a phenomenal actor; I’m a huge fan of Peter’s and Game of Thrones. He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting]. It’s so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he’s this guy from New Jersey.”

ComicBookMovie – Bryan Singer Teases Return Of  Scott And Jean In X-MEN: DOFP; Hints At Shared Fox Universe
When the site put it to him that a lot of fans would like to see Scott and Jean  return, he teased: “Who wouldn’t? Who wouldn’t? [Laughing] That’s all I can  say. The good news is that we’re all on the same page!”

ComicBookMovie – Bryan Singer Talks About His  Role In X-MEN: FIRST CLASS
“It would be [weird to direct Days of Future Past]  if I didn’t write the story for X-Men: First Class. I wrote the story to that  movie and I produced it and I was instrumental in the casting, in design and  involved in the post-production, so I was part of that movie. I initiated that  movie and originated it so in that way, and worked with Matthew and I was the  one who actually hired Matthew so in a way I feel like I’m not completely  entering someone else’s franchise. I’m entering one that he executed  wonderfully, but one that I was also part of.”

Mark Miller, the man in charge of Fox’s new X-Men movies, posted some stuff on his forum and ComicBookMovie broke it down… I’ve suddenly become very afraid and very confused….

1) He calls the The Wolverine amazing, akin to something David Lean would have made… David Lean, the man who gave us Lawrence of Arabia and Dr Zhivago… really? Miller is comparing a superhero movie with ninja’s to Lawrence of Arabia? … How?

2) First Class and Wolverine are ‘year one’ as far as he’s concerned… so why in the world is he letting Singer piecemeal and shoehorn Days of Future Past with the older movies? or is this truly going to be a reboot/retcon moment in DOFP?

3) He calls The Amazing Spider-Man a ‘misfire’, not bad, just a step backwards because it retold the origin again (which yeah, okay, they didn’t really need to retell the origin) but way to smack mouth Marvel Entertainment and Sony. That’s just bad form, not to mention tacky.

4) Then he praises Dark Knight Rises as one of the best films of 2012 while simultaneously insulting it, not just pointing out any niggly issues, outright insulting the movie and Nolan.

“It has it’s problems, especially Nolan’s reluctance to make Batman himself  especially interesting, and the pay off with Bane SO anticlimactic after such a  brilliant build up.”

5) His best film of 2012? The Grey aka Liam Nesson Punching Wolves… out of ALL the movies that came out in 2012…

Matthew Vaughn directed X-Men: First Class and was slated to continue with the sequel, Days of Future Past… but he’s stepped down from directing and will stay on as a producer. Bryan Singer, who gave us X1 and a producer on FC, is the one FOX wants to direct Days of Future Past.

While X1 was a great movie, I’m just not sure about Singer doing FC’s sequel. FC had a different tone from X1 and a different slant which leant itself to becoming a reboot vehicle. I want them to continue in this vein and I want the reboot because I want X3 wiped from the records (which was Ratner’s fault, not Singer).

Right now I’m on the fence about this news and we’ll have to wait and see who actually ends up directing and more of the plot details.
