Bryan Singer to Direct X-men First Class
ugh…. if you don’t know by now , on how much I hate superman returns and its famed director. Bryan Singer is back at the X-men helm. Considering his last tow movies Vaylerie and Superman returns were complete flops. I think he should stay away from comic book movie and Battlestar Galatica which is one of the best tv shows ever. I could rant 3 blogs long on how bad Superman Returns was and how bad most of his X-men characterizations were but what is the point.
Interviewed by MySpace at the premiere, Singer was asked about his upcoming projects. After mentioning his next film, Jack the Giant Killer, Singer then let loose the big news, saying, “I just yesterday signed a deal to do an X-Men: First Class origins picture, which is kind of cool. I’m very excited.”
Singer’s statement confirms First Class is an origin film, though it’s not clear yet what characters will be included and how closely it will adhere to the continuity of the previous X-Men films, in which Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm and Beast (the latter going by info from The Last Stand) were among Charles Xavier’s earliest students – while characters like Iceman and Angel (who were original members in the comics) joined later.
