Bryan Singer to direct pilot for X-Men TV show

01.25.2017

Bryan Singer's X-MEN movie in 2000 is cited as kickstarting the current comic-book high that Hollywood has yet to come down from. However, even if you can create a direct line from AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR and JUSTICE LEAGUE to X-MEN, times certainly have changed. With things like the cosmic weirdness of DOCTOR STRANGE, many comic-book movies have become less grounded, and well, more comic-book-y. Which begs the question, is Singer still relevant in the world he helped create?

I don't know the answer to that question, but it seems 20th Century Fox and Marvel Television seem to think so. He's going to be producing and helming an untitled X-Men related series about "two ordinary parents who discover that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive."

This will be the second X-Men-related TV show Singer is producing, alongside FX's upcoming LEGION (though he didn't helm any episodes of that...yet).

So what do you guys think? You down for more Singer X-MEN stuff? And if so, how does this untitled pilot sound to you? Sound off below!

hmmm...interesting that everyone forgets the fact that Singer is a child molester and no one boycotts his movie, but then a dog gets kind of abused and everyone goes nuts, this is the twilight zone

This is phenomenal news! I love Singer's X-Men films, X2 and Days of Future past are a couple of perfect 10s in my humble opinion.I can't wait for this pilot now!

I'm perfectly fine with Singer directing the pilot for this since he has directed most of the X-Men films to this point, but film wise, I would LOVE to see Matthew Vaughn given another X-Men film to direct since First Class is my personal favorite of the bunch.

Terrible decision... Time to move on from Singer

It makes no sense to have Bryan Singer involved with the television series and it actually deters me from wanting to watch it. I know its just the pilot, but Im over Singer.

Apocalypse is Singer's weakest X-Men film, but not as bad as some people make it out to be. Still a fun film. Not sure about the tv show. Doesn't exactly seem like the plot is bringing anything new to the table. I'll keep an open mind at this point though.
