Bryan Singer Discusses Sentinels, Quicksilver, and Time Travel From the Set of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Last August I went to Montreal to visit the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past. While in Canada I had the chance to speak to many of the film’s principals, including director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg. While much of what we saw on the visit has since been revealed to the public through the trailer and a plethora of images, Singer had a lot to say about the creation of the film that hasn’t ended up online yet.
Below you’ll find his comments on three key points: shooting the character Quicksilver, which was accomplished in part through the use of a high-speed camera; the creation and ideas behind the Sentinels; and the use of time travel as a plot device. Read More »

“Imagine the end of Ghostbusters, but with the heroes failing and Gozer taking over the world.” That’s how writer Scott Chitwood describes his upcoming new comic book, Haunted. The story picks up 13 years after the barrier between the real and spiritual worlds collapses, and focuses on a young girl who might have the key to saving the world.
It’s a very cool concept, and months before the comic is set to be released, Bryan Singer‘s Bad Hat Harry productions has picked up the rights. Read More »

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 »

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 overstuffed roster for X-Men: Days of Future Past just got a little bit smaller.

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 »
