Los Angeles, March 23 (IANS) Director Bryan Singer found it traumatising to let go of the "X-Men" franchise.

The filmmaker managed the first two instalments of the superhero franchise, before giving up the rights to Brett Ratner and Matthew Vaughn on two subsequent films. He admits it was difficult to see someone else direct a series that he helped bring to life on the big screen.

"I've never told anybody this, but I found the whole letting go of the characters for "X-Men 3" so traumatising that a friend, who shall remain nameless, had to take me to a secret location and show me the reels so far, just so I could make my peace with it," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Singer as saying.

Singer's latest film "Jack the Giant Slayer", which is a new take on the classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" fairy tale, is a considerably light-hearted compared to the superhero movies he's known for.
