It’s official!!! Bryan Singer is on board to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016. There was doubt that a lawsuit filed by Michael Egan claiming sexual abuse would threaten the 49-year-old director’s participation in the film. With Egan dropping the lawsuit last month, Singer is free and clear to direct the highly-anticipated sequel.

Singer helmed the first two X-Men films of the original franchise and returned to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. The latter is the most successful one in the franchise’s history with a worldwide gross of $746 million. Production on X-Men: Apocalypse will begin early next year. Are you excited Bryan is back? Sound off below.

Talk about crappy timing. OUT magazine interviewed Bryan Singer before a lawsuit alleging sexual abuse surfaced. Obviously the piece was in part to promote X-Men: Days of Future Past. The publication reached out to the X-Men director for comments about the allegations before going to print, but Singer declined. Most likely following his lawyer’s advice.

Inside the issue, Singer reveals he’s “quite bisexual,” adding that he had two girlfriends in the past five years. I wonder if they’re actually girlfriends or guuuuuurlfriends ;) The 48-year-old also talks about the queer allegories of superheroes, Ellen Page’s coming out and feeling no pressure on his part to come out himself. Check out more quotes below, along with another photo snapped by James Dimmock.

On His Sexual Orientation

“I’m quite bisexual. In the last five years, I’ve had two girlfriends—one for two years, one for eight months… In the end, it’s probably going to be a guy. I emotionally lean towards male relationships, so I’m happy to say I’m gay, too, if it’s a one-syllable, easy answer.”

Michael F. Egan rocked Hollywood last week with his claim that Bryan Singer sexually abused him when he was a minor. Since the allegations surfaced, the X-Men: Days of Future Past director has canceled two scheduled appearances. He was supposed to appear at last weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, but bowed up. Next month he was scheduled to attend an MPAA symposium in Washington, DC but canceled that as well. In addition to that, his name has been removed from promos advertising ABC’s Black Box which Singer executive produced.

The 31-year-old plaintiff dropped more bombs on Monday by naming three additional men who took part in a “Hollywood sex ring.” Egan’s lawyer Jeff Herman presented the additional claims Monday during a press conference held in Beverly Hills. Similar charges were filed to these men.

X-Men director Bryan Singer is in a bit of hot water. Variety.com reports the 48-year-old is being accused of sexually abusing a male teenager in a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday in Hawaii. Singer is accused of forcibly sodomizing Michael Egan when he was 17. The alleged incident took place back in 1999 at a house in Encino.

Michael‘s lawyer Jeff Herman also claims that Bryan gave the teenager drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii more than once in 1999. The defendant is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for the sexual assault he allegedly suffered.

“Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children,” Herman said in a statement. “This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue.”

Not surprisingly, Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, is claiming his client is innocent. Here’s what he told to the Hollywood Reporter.

“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” said Marty Singer. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”

“It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity,” continued Singer’s lawyer, noting its timing in relation to the May opening of Singer’s next film, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

After teasing us last week, Marvel finally shelled out the goods. At long last, the first full-length movie trailer for the highly anticipated sequel-prequel is here. And it’s everything I’d hope it would be.

The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves in an epic battle that must change the past– to save their future. Watching Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin and Ian McKellan in the same film is going to be phenomenal. To boot, several new faces join the franchise including Booboo Stewart (Warpath), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Lucas Till (Havok). Check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer below.

Just when I thought X-Men Days of Future Past casting was complete, Bryan Singer throws a curve ball. The 47-year-old director announced via Twitter that Quicksilver, the speedy son of Magneto, will make an appearance in the highly-anticipated sequel.

“Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.” – Bryan Singer’s Twitter

The interesting part of this news is not who’s playing Quicksilver, but rather the addition of the character in the film. Just recently, Joss Whedon announced Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch were part of his plans for The Avengers sequel.

To give a bit of a background, Magneto’s offspring are mutants. Since FOX owns the X-Men franchise, fans were worried that their inclusion to Disney-owned Avengers franchise might not happen due to legal issues. But since Whedon announced their inclusion, everything seemed fine.

I can’t help but think Singer adding Quicksilver this late in the game is a way to thwart The Avengers because they had no legal leg to stand on to prevent the characters’ appearance in Whedon’s film. Perhaps I’m reading too much into this, but my Spidey-sense tells me otherwise.

It’s been several years since Halle Berry played Ororo Munroe aka Storm on screen. The 46-year-old actress isn’t let a little thing called pregnancy stop her from playing the superhero once again for X-Men: Days of Future Past. That said, Berry did mention in an earlier interview that most likely a stunt double would take on more of the physical parts and the costume probably needed altering in a few places.

The film’s director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo on Monday (April 22) along with the caption, “Storm watch #HalleBerry #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast”. Get your first look at Berry’s fourth turn as the Marvel Comics heroine below. Pregnant or not, Halle is still pretty bad-ass. Check it out below.

Last week, rumors that another veteran from the original X-Men trilogy joining X-Men: Days of Future Past surfaced. They were started by none other than James McAvoy who plays the younger Charles Xavier in the reboot series. The 33-year-old Scottish actor slipped up by including Alan Cumming’s name with Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and others as coming back to the franchise. Cumming appeared as Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler in 2003′s X2. Turns out those rumors were false… or were they.

Cumming revealed that he hadn’t “gotten the call” from Bryan Singer. Since the rumors surfaced, the director has neither confirmed nor denied Cumming’s addition. In a photo released via Twitter, however, Singer did reveal a few casting additions not previously released. One of which is Daniel Cudmore who played Colossus in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Glad the Canadian star is back in the fold. He’s one tall drink of hotness. Find out the other newbies joining X-Men: Days of Future Past below.
