“Right now, once this one is done, I’d like to do something really different.” That was Bryan Singer last summer talking about his fourth X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. He then did just that and started prepping a movie about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, but he’s already getting sucked back in.
Fox’s X-Men universe is in trouble and Fox knows it. Its bona fide star, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, is done after Logan. The last X-Men movie made much less than the one before it. And Deadpool just lost its director.
It’s probably not a huge shock, but Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer’s audio commentary on X-Men: Apocalypse seems to confirm that Mister Sinister will be the villain in the third Wolverine movie.
Speaking at the Edinburgh Television festival, Bryan Singer said that Legion and the other, unnamed X-Men-based TV show “will relate to future X-Men movies.” This might not work as well as he’s hoping.
Basically, imagine that Bryan Singer is Michael Corleone and the X-Men movies are the mob. Only he’s not upset so much as he is resigned and kind of happy about it.
Everything that’s good, and bad, about X-Men: Apocalypse can be traced to it being part of the successful X-Men franchise. It’s not only the third film in the series (in the new movie continuity), but also the sixth (overall), and also the ninth (if you count solo movies) which creates certain…
We know that the next installment of the X-Men franchise will likely be taking place in the 1990s, but now we might know where it’ll take place: in outer space.
After two movies of young Charles Xavier having a full head of luscious locks, James McAvoy has finally gone full Professor X in X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor shaved his head for the transformation, and thankfully, director Bryan Singer was smart enough to document the event for the fans.
This weekend, 20th Century Fox held the first screenings of Bryan Singer’s X-Men Apocalypse and now the reviews are in. Some people love Singer’s epic vision, but most found it to be long, bloated, and disappointing. We’ve got examples of them all.
Ever since the very first images of Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse were released, pretty much everyone of a certain age had the same reaction: “Is that Ivan Ooze from the Power Rangers movie?” Well, now Bryan Singer’s stepped up to defend his choices.
The titular villain of X-Men: Apocalypse is terrifying because of his history. If the stories are true, he was the first mutant and has been around for generations. Well, now a new viral video dives into that backstory with a familiar-feeling, late-night TV vibe.
On his 50th birthday in September, director Bryan Singer posted an Instagram photo of a script he’d co-written for a new adaptation of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, dubbing it “a story I’ve wanted to retell since childhood ... an adventure very dear to my heart.” And now, it’s happening.
It wiped out all three of the original X-Men films. Guess we know how Fox is going to reboot X-Men.
I guess if you’re making a time travel movie, you may as well get some advice from James Cameron. And if you seek his advice, you should probably take it. Which is exactly what Bryan Singer did with the end to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Disney owns both Marvel and ABC, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only channel that can have Marvel TV shows. Fox just announced that it’s working on its own Marvel show, tentatively called Hellfire. Plus another Marvel show is in the pipeline for FX, called Legion.
Rumors of a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake have been around for years. David Fincher had been attached since 2010 but could never get his vision off the ground. Now, another A-list director has taken control of the Nautilus: Bryan Singer.
When the casts of X-Men Apocalypse, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Gambit and The Wolverine all met on stage at San Diego Comic-Con, fans could see the writing on the wall. Despite years of rumors and denials, this was leading to a crossover. Now, we have a minor confirmation.
Though the film is still in production, last week Comic-Con got the first official glimpse at Bryan Singer’s X-Men Apocalypse. And while that footage isn’t online yet, the first official photos now are, including Oscar Isaac as the tyrannical title villain Apocalypse.
Last night, director Bryan Singer Instagrammed this photo of a somber James McAvoy getting into chrome-dome character as Charles Xavier for next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Somewhere, the naturally bald Patrick Stewart is probably chuckling over this sight.
