I was browsing through movie news, and it looks like X3 might be the last X-Men movie to be made. Tom Rothman, the head of Fox Studio had this to say….
X-Men: The Last Stand, it’s is the conclusion of this trilogy. These three movies work as a trilogy. These characters in this relationship, it’s the culminaton of that saga. It’s the culmination and the resolution of those relationships laid out in the first two movies. That doesn’t mean never, I would ever say never again but I will say that this brings that saga to an end. It’s quite the way the last Lord of the Rings, Return of the King, brought that trilogy to a conclusion in terms of those characters, that’s what this movie does. It goes all the way back to the first one and rounds off and completes that three part story.
Who knows though, he says there won’t be another, but if this one makes enough money I doubt they’d turn down the right script for a fourth. Can’t wait to see X3 this summer. It’ll be good to complete the story that has been started with the first 2.
Here’s the full interview with Tim Rothman.
