Bryan Singer to take over directing duties on X-Men: Days of Future Past
Just five days after it was announced that Matthew Vaughn would not be directing X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, it looks like they've already found someone else to sit in his chair.
Bryan Singer will take the reins on the next film. Singer is certainly no stranger to our favorite mutants having had a hand in stories and helming responsibilities on X-MEN and X2. He also came in creatively on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
In the previous article regarding Vaughn's departure, there was a bit of a disagreement on whether Singer did the comic series any justice. I've gotta tell you-- I think he did just fine-- plus it's better than X3. Vaughn did excellent with the material, but he's out. The next project for him is another comic adaptation, SECRET SERVICE from Mark Millar.
DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was one of my favorite story arcs on the animated series back in the 90s. I have one word: BISHOP. You can't see me, but I'm running in my living room, arms flailing like a happy Muppet.
I can't wait to see what you guys have to say on this one. I'm sure there will be a massive divide on whether this is a good choice or not. Let the battle begin!
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will release on July 18, 2014.
