Fox Head talks about Fantastic Four reboot and Singer directing X-Men; Apocalypse

X-Men: Days of future past is looking out to be one of the best or probably the best X-Men team ever made and FOX can't complain because of the almost $700M the movie has made for them and which is making the other superhero franchise worth watching. 

When asked about what is responsible for the success of the movie, the representative said it was all about the director. Here are words from the THR interview:

It was the management of the franchise. And a big part of it was getting Bryan [Singer] back [as director]. The debate about originality versus familiar titles is interesting. You can have original movies that feel derivative in their execution, and you can have franchise titles that feel solely original and aspirational in terms of the talent attached, the story, et cetera. So I think the reason for ‘Days of Future Past’s success is, it doesn’t underestimate what the audience is wanting or capable of enjoying.

When asked about the Fantastic Four reboot and the possible success of the franchise, she had this to say:

Certainly, the audience seems to still be really enjoying it. We’re making a big bet for 2015 with ‘The Fantastic Four’ and director Josh Trank. To me, the key is the originality of the filmmakers and the choices they make. Josh is another really interesting example, who is using the vision he gave us in ‘Chronicle’ to reinvent a franchise he’s loved his whole life. It’s not that you can’t make original ideas – you can, and we did it with ‘Chronicle.’ The director is the key to not letting superhero movies go stale. That’s the truth.

What do you think of Singer being back as director?
