Warning: Spoilers.

X-Men series producer Lauren Shuler Donner told the Seattle Women in Film Q&A conference last week that X-Men 3 will continue with the Dark Phoenix saga and a stand-alone Wolverine movie may be in the works.

Shuler Donner and X-Men co-creator Stan Lee will be doing a Q&A following an X2: X-Men United screening at the Arclight Cinemas in Los Angeles, Tuesday, Oct. 19. For more info, click here.

Meanwhile, scripter Simon Kinberg has been hired to write X-Men 3's script, Hollywood Reporter said. Kinberg, who wrote Mr. and Mrs. Smith for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, also did a rewrite of Elektra and the Fantastic Four movie.

"I'm a religious reader of the ('X-Men') comics, and I loved the first two movies," Kinberg said. "I had a great experience with Fox and Marvel on the other projects, and when they came to me and asked me if I had any interest in 'X3,' I was ecstatic. I grew up on them, and I love these comics, and it's exciting to take a whack at making the third the biggest and best in the trilogy; it's our 'Return of the King."'

The producers of the film are looking to start filming next summer and are meeting with directors to replace Bryan Singer who moved on to direct the Superman movie.
