Bryan Singer Claims That an Image He "Tweeted" is From "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

....But it's actually an image from the "X-Men: First Class" movie directed by Matthew Vaughn. You see, it says "First Class" on this logo right here for all to see.
Does Bryan Singer think that the public doesn't read and / or scrutinize the material he releases claiming it's his? Does Bryan Singer want to try again in releasing supposed pre-production or finalized material of a movie he may or may not be directing, and a movie he may or may not ultimately drop out of? Releasing other people's material from previous movies in press releases and then claiming it's yours isn't cool.
Additionally, this "X-Men: Days of Future Past" movie is proceeding unusually swiftly in pre-production as Bryan Singer has been claiming. It's been what? A couple weeks since Bryan Singer first claimed he was the director of this thing, and he already has a finished script sitting on his lap, a finalized image (above) Singer claims is his that was fast tracked through the pre-production process of design, and Singer claims he is scouting locations already.
No movie is made this quickly in Hollywood. It's logistically impossible. At the other end of the spectrum, it shouldn't have taken Bryan Singer 12 years to make zero progress with a "Battlestar Galactica" movie, or have taken him almost a decade to make "Jack The Giant Slayer" if the silly movie is released at all.
I know enough about the movie making process to realize that the realities of movie making, and what Bryan Singer is claiming via his endless press releases with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" just aren't meshing together. Things never proceed this quickly in the movie making process. Not only that, but what Bryan Singer is endlessly claiming (through his usually expected and notorious press releases) with this movie are events proceeding out of sequence (in the normal movie making process) to say the least.
1. He has a finished script before a first or second draft was ever done? And he has a finished script a mere two weeks after he first announced (claimed) he was the director of this thing? Reality check: It takes a good 7 months to have a finished script if you're lucky. The standard time frame in Hollywood.
2. He has announced returning cast members before they ever consented to return and sign contracts.
3. Bryan Singer apparently has the fastest pre-production art department in Hollywood history, fast tracking the above logo through the pre-production process and into final manufacturing a mere couple weeks after Bryan Singer first claimed he was the director of this thing. If this is the case, then in typical assembly line fashion of a pre-production art department, Bryan Singer should also have tons of other props for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" designed, approved, and manufactured for the movie. All of these other props ready for Singer to share on "Twitter." Of course, the above logo is from another movie so there is no need to contemplate this any further.
I find it odd that no "Above The Line" personnel for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" have come forward and at the very least remarked..."Hey, I'm the Associate Producer on this movie and I'm working with Bryan Singer on this thing." Singer certainly can't make this movie by himself, right? Thus far, Singer has no one to vouch for him that he is really the director of this thing, or actually involved with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in any way. I learned a long time ago that if Bryan Singer claims to be directing anything via press releases, you need reputable people in Hollywood to confirm it.
I also find it odd that these supposedly truthful press releases from Bryan Singer are coming from him and only him, not one press release from 20th Century Fox itself at the very least confirming Bryan Singer as the director of this thing, and the destinations of these supposedly truthful press releases are the usually questionable news outlets, such as http://www.syfy.com .
