According to Comic Book Movie on Saturday, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" producer Lauren Shuler-Donner and Hutch Parker talk about extending the franchise and the concern of reaching a point of "film fatigue". They also speak of possibly doing a solo "Gambit" movie as well as a "Deadpool" film making its way to the big screen.

Shuler-Donner and Parker pontificated the issue with fatigue when reaching a certain point in the "X-Men" franchise. They had considered an emphatic possibility of moving forward with the original cast and also with that comes the possibility of fatigue. According to the producers, they felt that wouldn't be likely considering they are addressing the personal issues of each character as well as their circumstances.

Also, taking on a different genre helps keep the audience interest as well as engaged with the characters. It is only when a story is not surfacing the dilemmas of each role, is only when the film will start to get old. That if one were to fail to tell a story that engages the audience, that's when fatigue will run its course.

Also, the producers plan on shooting the "Wolverine 3" and "X-Men: Apocalypse" films back-to-back and are considering the challenge when it comes to the actors even first finding the script interesting enough to join up with the project once again. Although, it appears that Hugh Jackman may not consider another "Wolverine' film after part three.

"X-Men: Days of Future" past stars an ensemble of returning characters as well new ones as they attempt to save mutant-kind against the Sentinels that had been brought into this world to eliminate mutants. The inventor of the Sentinels, Bolivar Trask of Trask Industries, winds up having his plan backfire as the giant robots turning their guns on the humans as well. It is only a "Quantum Leap" style time travel event by Logan that would hopefully help save the world.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" open in theaters come May 23 and "X-Men: Apocalypse" is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016.
