Late last week we all got a very pleasant surprise when X-Men Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced that a new X-Men film is in the works and on it’s way called X-Men Apocalypse. Today we learned who will be returning as director of the new film and it is indeed Bryan Singer.
Vulture is reporting that Singer will be back to direct what looks to be a follow up and sequel to Days of Future Past but not much else is known about the project at this point. The movie was just announced the other day which means we couldn’t be in an earlier stage of production, especially considering X-Men Days of Future Past isn’t even out yet and won’t be until May.
But with marvel blazing a new path for comic boo movie releases, 20th Century is already announcing another movie and Singer seems to be their version of Joss Whedon.
Singer was onboard with 20th Century FOX from the very beginning of their foray into the world of comic book movies. He directed the first two very successful and well received X-Men movies for FOX in the early 2000s and has since come back to add Days of Future Past and now Apocalypse to his resume.
Singer knows X-Men, as we’ve seen in the past, and it’s great news to hear he’ll be back for a fourth time.
