Now things might be drifting in the other way for the X-Men franchise. Their last X-Men movie, Apocalypse, failed to repeat the same success at the box office, and now Wolverine 3 - Logan appears to be the last X-Men movie for Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman.
Adding to that, contracts of most X-Men actors are running out. The movie bosses at 20th Century FOX are now left with no choice apart from introducing fresh blood in the line, with young actors replacing the older ones and the consequently the story taking a drift to fit them in.
With a deep insight, anybody can tell that FOX is gradually heading towards rebooting their golden-child, X-Men movie franchise.
Rumour has it that the 'Sherlock Holmes' famed, Simon Kinberg will pen a new movie script for X-Men and the story will be told in a different perspective, yet intriguing way. It is also learned that Bryan Singer will not be available, with the franchise anymore.
All these concludes to what? The reset button has already been pressed. X-Men reboot is under way. The new script for the movie will now be written on three major characters played by Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence in mind.
And interestingly enough for fans, since Bryan Singer would be gone, and a new story needs to be churned out, now it appears X-Men reboot would finally be modified into an X-Men and Avengers crossover within the Marvel Universe.
