A few days ago, I made my feelings on Bryan Singer returning to the X-Men franchise perfectly clear. I will try not to repeat myself, but I offer no promises. Instead, I offer additional information concerning the plot of the upcoming prequel, straight from Singer's mouth to Variety's laptops:

"This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where there relationship took a wrong turn," Singer said. "There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from 'X-Men' will figure into the plot, though I don't want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain."

Okay, so this will be a movie concerning how Professor X and Magneto were driven apart. We'll also surely see tween versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm gallivanting about. Ten bucks says that Wolverine pops in to wish 'em luck in a cameo that will not make any sense concerning the continuity of the-

Ah, forget it. X-Men Origins: Wolverine already flipped continuity the bird and threw it off a nuclear reactor along with Deadpool's severed head.

The article goes on to compare the concept to JJ Abrams' Star Trek and quotes Singer saying: "I put myself in the fan's position, and I think this story is something I would want to see, and so will they."

I want to believe you, Bryan. I really do. But no. I do not want to see X-Men Babies.

X-Men Origins: First Class will get rolling after Singer finishes Jack the Giant Killer. Then he'll tackle Battlestar Galactica (WHY?!) and Excalibur.
