Bryan Singer confirmed to direct ‘X-Men First Class’ sequel

Tuesday Deadline confirmed that Fox was signed Bryan Singer to return to the X-Men franchise, directing the sequel to last summer’s “X-Men: First Class.” The film appears to be titled “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” based on a popular comic book storyline.

“First Class” director Matthew Vaughn bowed of the sequel leaving Fox to scramble.

Singer directed the first two films in the X-Men franchise, but the series to direct “Superman Returns” in 2006. Brett Ratner was brought in to complete the trilogy with the failed “X-Men: The Last Stand,” panned by critics, despised by fans and considered a box office failure.

“Days of Future Past” in the comic book storyline from the 1980’s which followed a dark future where the robot Sentinels control the earth, roundup and put mutants in concentration camps. An ageless Wolverine and a young cast of X-Men appear to fit nicely into the storyline and would seem to make fans very excited about the film.

The studio hopes to make the July 18, 2014 release date it set for the sequel.

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and the cast from the first film appear to all be set to return for a second film.
