And, most likely, taking two of the bigger X2 screenwriters with him.
Well, fortunately, screenwriters can work on multiple projects more easily than directors, so there’s still a good chance that X3’s script will have that continuity and quality from the last two. But as someone with little interest or history with Superman, and much with X-Men, I can’t help but be a little depressed… If it turns out that he indeed can’t do X3, Fox had better not screw up the new director (and/or writer) choice. I’d almost rather wait for him to finish Superman in that case.
Bryan! Come back to us!
