Rumors of the next X-Men film have been steadily swirling around ever since it first popped up on the production schedule.
Between Sophie Turner's confirmation, the announcement of working title to 'Supernova,' and hints that the film would revolve around the Dark Phoenix Saga, it's almost as if the film is set in stone.
Not quite, especially after clarification of the latest rumor came through.
While speaking with Fandango managing editor Erik Davis, Kinberg relayed some comments that didn't deny that he's taking on directing the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse, but he didn't confirm it, either.
When confronted with these reports, Kinberg indicated that the reports were "still premature," according to Davis.
"Not official yet."

Yet, being the keyword. As with all things Batman and the involvement of Matt Reeves, everything can change with the drop of a hat.
Kinberg seemed to further hint at Supernova's plot, as well as reinforcing the slim-to-nothing chance of Jackman's reprisal of Wolverine in the movie. But those are different stories for another time…
The next film in the X-Men Family Saga releases next week, with James Mangold's Logan in theaters March 3.
