Bryan Singer to direct pilot for X-Men TV show

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!

Extra Tidbit: Bryan Singer is still allowed near X-MEN after X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.
