'Days of Future Past' Q&A With Bryan Singer at FantasiaFest

The Q&A Round up with Bryan Singer at the FantasiaFest in Montreal
 A Question and Answer was held with Bryan Singer during the "Rated X: A Night With Bryan Singer" in Montreal tonight:

  • X-MEN films somewhere between THE DARK KNIGHT and Marvel movies. Before starting first 
  • X-MEN watched all 70 episodes of animated series Release schedule moved up six months on first film, which led to a few unpleasant moments. 
  • On Man of Steel: Very different film.  A total reconception of the Donner films. "Henry Cavill is pretty charming."
  • His super-sequel (to his SUPERMAN RETURNS) would have been a bit like Man of Steel with an alien threat. Loved working with with Tom Cruise. "Great guy. Very deferential to directors" 
  • On STAR TREK: Thinks he's too big a fan to ever do one. Would be too precious. Thinks Abrams is better for that.
  •   On TRICK R TREAT (which he produced): Very proud of it. Would live to do a "suspenseful horror" like Exorcist. 
  • On JACK THE GIANT SLAYER: Shrugged off suggestions it was creatively compromised. The studio didn't do a great job distributing it but he's proud of the film. 
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: Shot in native 3D.
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: No Scarlet Witch in Days of Future Past. 
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: William Stryker will be in Days of Future Past. Josh Helman is playing him
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: Not the brightest X-Men movie, but it has a good message, trying to right wrongs. 
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: Most of the movie takes place in 1973. Future segments are 10 years after X3.
  • X-Men Days of Future Past: You find the characters in very different places that you saw them in First Class. Shows then becoming who they have to be.
  • Remembers Russell Crowe saying he'd play Wolverine - but only if he could play him bald. Didn't work.
  • Thoughts on Cyclops demise in X3: Wishes he could bring him back. Wasn't happy with that choice. Could justify bringing Xavier back because he transferred his consciousness and could possibly construct a body around that consciousness. Was however, happy about some things- like the casting of Ellen Page.
  • On any Marvel movies he'd like to make: "Iron man so I could finally buy that house I always wanted or a plane." Seriously though, has an idea for a Marvel Universe mash up he didn't want to reveal.
  • Once had a bad editing experience because he wasn't working with John Ottman. Wouldn't reveal the film (but it seems the first X-MEN was the only one Ottman didn't edit) but had such a big fight with the editor, that he smashed a bottle on the wall and was locked out of the editing room for three days. 
  • Are superhero movies a trend or here to stay? Believes they are our modern day mythology- our generation's King Arthur. Lots of fun to reinvent and Willie around for a long time.
