The Fantastic Four is currently filming and will be arriving in theaters on June 19, 2015, while X-Men: Apocalypse is on track to come out on May 27, 2016. While the first X-Files movie - release during the height of the series' popularity in 1998 - was a box office hit, the same can't be said its a sequel. Released in 2008, a full decade after the first one, The X-Files: I Want To Believe cost only $35 million to make, but wound up only making $20.9 here and $47 million abroad. These numbers didn't exactly tell the studio that audiences were clamoring for more stories featuring FBI Agents Mulder and Scully, so the idea of a third movie has long been considered an unlikely possibility. All that out there, David Duchovny still isn't giving up hope that there is a future for the X-Files.

With Duchovny's long-running showtime series Californiacatation coming to an end this weekend, Rolling Stone recently sat down to talk with the actor, and during the course of the interview the X-Files star admitted that he still hasn't quite put Fox Mulder behind him. Asked if he would be game for a third film in the franchise, Duchovny said, I would always want to do it. I wish we'd done more already. I wish the second one did better business. I think it did OK business, but not the kind of business where you get to do another one right away."

In addition to touching on the future of the Fantastic Four, Watts also spoke briefly about Fox's other major Marvel Comics property: the X-Men. Thanks to X-Men: Days of Future Past, the franchise is arguably more popular than ever around the globe, and that spells out a bright future for the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse. That said, one major question that has hunt over the upcoming film is whether or not Bryan Singer will return to the director's chair following serious sex abuse allegations earlier this year. Asked if there is a plan set in place to have Singer return for his fourth X-Men movie, Watts was rather non-committal, telling the trade, "Right now we are totally at the outlining phase. But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It's always been the intention for him to do it."

Deadline reports that Sam Raimi will produce and possibly direct an adaptation of the book The Outpost: An Untold Story Of American Valor. The story is similar to the recent Lone Survivor in that it involves impossible odds, detailing a true-life siege upon American Combat Outpost Keating in Kamdesh, Eastern Afghanistan. Reportedly there were 400 Taliban warriors on the attack against only 53 American soldiers. The result was a day-long firefight that resulted in America's survival and the awarding of two Medals of Honor, the first time multiple awards were given to two soldiers for the same battle since 1963.

In addition to doing poorly with audiences, X-Files: I Want To Believe was also largely trashed by critics, which opens the debate: is a third X-Files movie something that people really want. I expect a lot of you are pretty split on this idea, so let us know what you think in the comments section below. Sam Raimi's career has never been predictable. The once indie director achieved billion dollar success with Spider-Man, and wound up departing that franchise at the peak of its success to go over to Disney and make Oz The Great And Powerful. But he's not sticking around for sequels, and has instead used the time since involving himself in various projects only to drop later, and instead boost his producing credentials. He's become his own version of a mercenary blockbuster auteur now, and it's anyone's guess what he'll direct next. The latest development is a surprise, however. Sam Raimi might be going to the Middle East for The Outpost.

What makes this case interesting is that many star TV actors from the '90s have spent their entire careers running away from the characters they played, hoping to avoid being typecast and only being recognized for one thing despite their personally known versatility. Duchovny admits that there was a time when he was part of this crowd, but the work he has done since the X-Files ended has allowed him to feel differently about the potential to revisit the character that gave him his big break. "Once I was able to branch out and do some other movies and do Californication, I didn't feel like, 'People only think I do that,'" the actor said. "I no longer have that anxiety."
