Apocalypse and Logan were intended to wrap up the Singerverse. Everything after that was supposed to be looser (if that's even possible) with continuity. Bring on a slate of more experiential films.

A nice guy with a mixed CV and let's be fair here nothing to his name to suggest he should be directing this. He and Singer butted heads on Apocalypse apparently.
It's kind of an act of God that they managed to get Lawrence back (Fassbender too, but his price-tag isn't in the same galaxy as her's). One can easily imagine this will have a budget to rival Days of Future Past with all the free agents coming back with bigger checks.
