The X-Men movie franchise might be restarted from scratch, as it was reported that Fox had plans of resetting the whole franchise following the exit of star actor Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) after next year’s Logan movie.

Based on Reports from The Hollywood Reporter, Jackman wouldn’t be the only one exiting the superhero series, as contracts for key stars like Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult have all ended. It was also noted that the cost of renewing their contracts with the studio will be too expensive for Fox, and as such they have no choice but to let them go.

According to sources from THR, the superhero series was simply going to be “reconfigured,” and that a new script is already underway by writer/producer Simon Kinberg.
