Jennifer Lawrence Will Return For More ‘X-Men’…Under One Condition
Jennifer Lawrence isn’t contracted for another X-Men sequel, but back in March she seemed pretty happy about the possibility of returning for more films. It’s been two months since then, and while Lawrence appears to be a little less eager about it now, she says that she’ll reprise the role of Raven…there’s just one thing that has to happen. Or maybe two.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that the next X-Men sequel will take place during the ’90s, which is fairly unsurprising given that it follows the decade-by-decade pattern of the recent trilogy. That doesn’t tell us much about their plans for the next chapter of the X-Men saga, but Bryan Singer has put forth an idea that may give us a hint about where the story is heading.

Rumor: Next ‘X-Men’ Movie Could Be the Jean Grey Story Fans Have Been Waiting For
Grain of salt warning, as this rumor is nowhere near confirmed, but feel free to file it somewhere between “plausible” and “probable.” While Fox has been working to expand their X-Men spinoff films and nurturing Deadpool’s corner of that universe, the studio has yet to announce the next proper X-Men sequel. Bryan Singer has expressed interest in returning to the franchise after he films 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which means it could be a few years or so before another X-Men movie hits theaters. In the meantime, the latest rumor about the future of X-Men suggests a film that could make some fans pretty happy.

‘Fantastic Four’
Yesterday, we learned that 20th Century Fox had worked out a new accord with Marvel permitting the studio to ferry one of its hottest properties into the lucrative land of milk and honey that is television. Fox has announced plans to develop two shows spun off from their X-Men franchise, one about an elite organization of mega-rich mutants called Hellfire and another about David Haller, a.k.a. the son of Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Legion. A new report from Den of Geek (still awaiting confirmation from Marvel) suggests that there may be an unknown flip side to this deal that would place The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s most iconic properties, back in their portfolio with another big-screen project to follow.

A new rumor suggests that the 'X-Men' universe will develop its own live-action TV series, but how might it fit into the franchise with 'Apocalypse' on the way?
