Why doesn’t he do another “X-MEN” film between now and then?!?!?

“Superman” director sees sequel for 2009
SAN DIEGO (Hollywood Reporter) – If director Bryan Singer has his way, Superman will take to the air a second time.
Singer, who directed the current “Superman Returns,” told fans Friday at Comic-Con International, that he has had discussions with Warner Bros. Pictures about directing a sequel for release in the summer of 2009.
“Superman Returns,” starring Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel, has grossed $169 million domestically to date, a figure that has been regarded by some observers as a disappointment given the movie’s production costs of more than $200 million.
But while Singer stressed that plans for the sequel are still tentative, he expressed his interests in keeping the franchise aloft.
“I plan to get all ‘Wrath of Khan’ on it,” Singer said — a reference to 1982’s “Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan,” which is generally considered as having breathed life into the “Star Trek” franchise after 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” suffered critical barbs.
“We haven’t concluded a deal. That’s always iffy,” Singer added. “The intention is to do it for 2009.”
