X-Men Dark Phoenix’s director, Simon Kinberg, revealed that he would love to direct an X-Men movie for Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Kinberg was a huge part of the X-Men films at 20th Century Fox.
He ended up directing X-Men Dark Phoenix, and he also basically directed the Fantastic Four movie.

He’s produced basically all of the X-Men movies and he seems to really love the franchise.
He’s now revealed his desire to direct an X-Men movie for Marvel Studios in the MCU.
Simon revealed this during a recent watch party with IGN.
Simon Kinberg wants to direct an X-Men movie for Marvel
Here’s what Kinberg told IGN about directing an X-Men movie for Marvel Studios:
I’ve dedicated a lot of my life to Logan and Deadpool and the X-Men and would love to do a fresh take.
He was very candid during the watch party with IGN.
They were watching the X-Men movie, Days of Future Past, and he also revealed that he has a great love for the MCU movies.
I love Endgame, it’s one of my favorite comic book movies of all time. The MCU’s tone in general is a bit more playful than our movies. We went more operatic, dramatic.
