Is It "Out With The Old & In With The New" As Far As Bryan Singer And J.J. Abrams Are Concerned?

A decade ago, the future seemed sparkling bright for Bryan Singer after having come straight off of directing "X-Men" and "X-Men 2." He seemed to be the new "Science Fiction Guy" in town ready to replace George Lucas and Steven Spielberg in Science Fiction cinema. That of course never happened as Bryan Singer's career seemed to take endless meandering detours with such underwhelming films as "Valkyrie", and he somehow (unfortunately) got mixed up with Universal Studios and their endless "Stop - Go"...."Stop - Go"...nonsense with the "Battlestar Galactica" feature films that never got made beginning in 2001. Unfortunately for Bryan Singer, he never broke ties with Universal Studios and continued to be the figure head to blame for every "Battlestar Galactica" movie that never got made after every bi-annual announcement. Not only that, but he also never got anything else made while continuing to associate with Universal Studios. The "Mini-Momentum" he had built for himself in the early 2000s after directing "X-Men" and "X-Men 2" (as a promising new Science Fiction film director) has all of the appearances of having faded away permanently from what I can gather due to his association with Universal Studios.

I believe Bryan Singer's time in Hollywood has long since passed. He is no longer the "flavor of the month" after directing "X-Men" and "X-Men 2" because he has so squandered every opportunity since then to build upon that momentum (primarily due to his inability to complete a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film no matter how many times they are announced) that Hollywood is now looking elsewhere for the next "Science Fiction Film Guy" even if every blown opportunity with a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film has been Universal Studios fault. As i said earlier, Bryan Singer is the "Figure Head to Blame" everytime a "Battlestar Galactica" movie fails to get made, because his name is always out front representing the project above Universal Studios name, and above everyone elses name as well.

J.J. Abrams on the other hand has had no such problems with his career primarily due to the fact that he hasn't been associated with Universal Studios in any way. Abrams is flying high after successfully re-booting "Star Trek" in 2009, and he is already moving into physical production of "Star Trek 2." I dare say that Bryan Singer is the antiquated relic from the 2000s slowly being replaced by J.J. Abrams as the new "Science Fiction Guy" in Hollywood to turn to if you want a Science Fiction movie successfully made.

Since Bryan Singer never really embraced the title in the first place.
