There Will Be No "X4," But....
From Dark Horizons: "(Avi) Arad told the trades that "The first reaction, which we should discard, is here comes 'X-Men 4'. We're working on 'Wolverine,' which is definitely a continuation, and we have a very interesting script about a young Magneto." Will Fox change their tune and pressure him for a fourth? Seems unlikely due to the expense involved. In many ways it now seems that "Wolverine" will serve as the unofficial fourth film sometime either in 2008 or 2009."
I suppose the Marvel Maniacs will have to keep themselves occupied with "Ghost Rider," "Spider-Man 3," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man," "Fantastic Four 2," and "Wonder Woman."
(Just kiddin'. Wonder Woman is a DC character. I was just testin' ya.)
