In addition to his comments about the Fantastic Four music, composer John Ottman was also asked if he would return for X-Men 3, having scored X2: X-Men United. ‘a1ant’ writes:
I saw the news thing on Lightnin Strikez quote from John Ottman. Well, this is to just let you know that I e-mailed Ottman a few days before and asked him if he was returning for X3. Here’s what he said:
“If you hear anything, let me know! I have no idea what’s going on with it. I think it’s on hold for the moment, which sucks. I’d love to score a follow up to my score. Thanks for your nice words too. We’ll see what happens.”
Ottman also did the music for the upcoming “House of Wax,” Fantastic Four, and Bryan Singer’s Superman.
