Simon Kinberg, the writer and producer of X-Men: Apocalypse, was on the Happy Sad Confused podcast to promote the movie. Host Josh Horowitz inevitably asked about Kinberg’s other projects, including one of the Star Wars spin-offs (which Kinberg remained mum about), Fantastic Four, and X-Men: The Last Stand.
Kinberg is usually very candid about his projects, recently revealing that Wolverine 3 is “like a western” and comparing Channing Tatum’s postponed Gambit movie to a sexy heist film. He was also very candid about Fantastic Four and X-Men: The Last Stand, telling Horowitz all about his regrets with those projects. Regarding Fantastic Four, with its difficult production and reported $60 million loss, Kinberg reiterated what he’s said before about liking the cast, but not liking the tone.
