Bryan Singer Says Mark Millar Isn't Working On New X-Men image
Because Mark Millar had been hired as a creative consultant for, comic-book properties at 20th Century Fox, one would assume that the things he has said about X-Men: Days of Future Past were coming from a point of insider information, and that he and Future Past director Bryan Singer have met, discussed the franchise, and shared ideas.

Not the case.

Singer spoke with the Web site Bleeding Cool about his collaboration with Millar, and learned this revealing bit of information:
Iíve not spoken to Mark Millar at all. Heís not involved. I donít know what his role is about. All I know is that I have my own specific beliefs about how to take this universe forward. I started with the first X-Men, then First Class and now I am combining them and I think it could go further than that and I have some ideas about that, so perhaps he should chat to me at some point.Ē

Very interesting. So Millarís talk of Sentinels, and how theyíll be a major part of the upcoming sequel, is that a total lie? A miscommunication? Why would Millar speak out like that if he and Singer havenít even talked? It seems like these two need to communicate, if Millar really is contributing at Fox in the ways he has sold it to fans.

The other interesting note in Singerís quote is that he has ideas of where the X-Men franchise could go after Future Past. In the post-Avengers age, all studios are thinking long term when it comes to their superhero properties, and you know Singer has been ordered to extend the brand with his next film Ö whether Mark Millar wants him to or not.
