Moviehole spoke with screenwriter Simon Kinberg who answered a few items on X-Men 3. Here’s a clip:
Will “X-Men 3” be about Dark Phoenix?
I’m not allowed to say, but your guess isâ€¦. it was set up pretty well in the second movie. So, that’s part of the third movie, but there’s a new plot that’s the story of the film.
What of the rumours that James Marsden mightn’t be coming back?
I believe he is now. The way I’ve written his character now â€“ I’m trying to write him so he only has to come back for a couple of weeks. But he’s definitely a part of the movie.
