The first thing he talked about was why The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner wasn't going to be in his superhero opus.

"I wanted Taylor [Lautner] to do it, I really did," Singer stated. "He's doing a movie in Pittsburgh called Abduction and then he's got the next Twilight movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn't look like it's possible to do it."

He also talked down rumors about him possibly directing Wolverine 2.

"It's not what I'm going to do right now, the next project for me next year, in London, is Jack the Giant Killer that is set in the 1300s and it's very fun. It will be a big movie."
