James Marsden Talks X-Men 3!

James Marsden, aka Cyclops in the X-Men movies, told Sci Fi Wire that X-Men 3 is in the works and the producers have expressed interest in his reprising the character.

“I know that there’s an outline, a treatment out there, for the third one,” Marsden said in an interview. “I don’t know what’s in it or what the story is.”

Marsden said that during his interactions with “big, diehard X-Men fans,” they expressed interest in seeing the Dark Phoenix saga from the comic books depicted on the big screen. “[It's] when Jean Grey [Famke Janssen] turns into Dark Phoenix,” the actor said. “So I interviewed some of these fans, and they’d very much like that to happen. I guess that would include me a lot, because she’d become super cosmic and evil. So that would be an interesting dichotomy, to have Hugh Jackman [Wolverine] and [me] team up to stop her.”
