“I hope I can put this in a box under the bed, breathe and figure out what's next. I will say that if there is more to do in this X franchise, it certainly isn't what people expect it to be. It's not just about picking up a few years later and whatever. It's different in the way that Pearl was an unexpected departure. It's another unexpected departure.”
