Comic book fans are likely to have some mixed feelings about this, but it appears that Bryan Singer has officially signed on to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to X-Men: First Class, replacing Matthew Vaughn who left the project last week. Singer still seems like the safest and most obvious choice, but after Superman Returns, many have lost faith in his ability to direct superheroes on screen.
The last thing he directed was the pilot for The Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane which aired on NBC recently; he also has Jack the Giant Slayer coming in March. Hey, at the very least, we can still look forward to the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past might finally feature Sentinels. Are you happy to see Singer back in the director’s chair for another X-Men movie?
