Last year, Zack Snyder unveiled Man of Steel, his Superman reboot with Henry Cavill in the lead role. But had cinematic history gone a bit differently, it could very well have been Bryan Singer premiering his Man of Steel with Henry Cavill in the lead role a few years earlier.
In a recent interview, the filmmaker confirmed that Cavill had been up for the led in 2006′s Superman Returns before Brandon Routh won the part. He also revealed that Man of Steel was the title he’d been considering for his planned sequel, which would have featured the villain Darkseid. Hit the jump to find out why Cavill lost out, what Singer’s Man of Steel would’ve been like, and what he thought of Snyder’s Man of Steel.

The release of 25 different magazine covers for X-Men: Days of Future Past both answered a bunch of questions but raised a bunch too. We found out what Quicksilver was going to look like, and saw the modern Sentinels, but at the same time, why did Wolverine have metal claws in the future considering what happened in The Wolverine? And wasn’t Rogue cut out of the film?
In an new interview, director Bryan Singer and writer Simon Kinberg answered those questions and even addressed the next announced X-Men film, X-Men Apocalypse, calling it “more of a First Class sequel.” Read the quotes below. Read More »

The Sundance Film Festival is the best known film festival in the United States. Say the word “Sundance” to anyone, film lover or not, and chances are they’ve heard of the festival. As a movie blog though, the problem with covering Sundance is that virtually all of the movies are brand new. We haven’t heard of them, you haven’t heard of them, so why would you even care about them?
More than any of the casting news, trailers or film stills that we post on a daily basis, what happens in that small corner of Utah for a little over a week in January is probably the most important movie event of the year. Even so, talk to the most seasoned movie fan and they don’t spend half as much time focusing on what’s going on at Sundance as they do bitching about movies that came out three years ago. Plain and simple, the best films that you will see in theaters for the next 12 months are being shown at Sundance over the next week and a half. And while you probably haven’t heard of them in January, you’ll definitely have heard of them by December. Don’t you want in on the ground floor?
For the next 7 days myself, Russ Fischer and Peter Sciretta will be in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival. And while you might not be eager to click and read about a movie you haven’t heard of yet, we urge you to do so. Some of the films that people hadn’t heard of when they played Sundance in the past are films like Saw, The Blair Witch Project, Donnie Darko, 28 Days Later, Napoleon Dynamite, Memento, Bottle Rocket, Clerks, Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects. Think of all the movies that have been made since because filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Wes Anderson, Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino and Bryan Singer broke out at the Sundance Film Festival. Who is the breakout star this year? You’ll have to follow our coverage to find out.
Still not convinced? We’ve compiled even more films that you know and love that got their start at Sundance after the jump. Read More »
Bryan Singer finished 2013 with a bang, revealing that another X-Men sequel, called X-Men: Apocalypse, will hit theaters in 2016. The writer/director is still finishing X-Men: Days of Future Past but the announcement suggested the X-Men universe would continue to expand in a major way.
Singer just did a new interview where he said he’s yet to decide if there will be a post-credit scene teasing the 2016 film. Plus, while he’s co-writing and producing the new sequel, he’s not yet locked in to direct. Read More »

The X-Men: Apocalypse situation is interesting — director Bryan Singer “announced” the film via tweet, but parent studio Fox has yet to officially confirm or comment on the project, other than the register of a release date (May 27, 2016) that showed up on BoxOfficeMojo. The film is a presumed sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the title suggests the inclusion of X-Men villain Apocalypse, but that’s almost all we know.
Now Singer has tweeted an image of a “late night story session” for the film, showing him at work with Simon Kinberg, who we know has a big role in Fox’s superhero movie plans. Also in the pic are X2: X-Men United screenwriters Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris. Read More »
