What do we know about Bryan Singer so far? The undeniable facts...
1. That he spends more time on the Internet spreading rumors about himself than he does actually creating movies for public consumption. These rumors always involve him being assigned as the director of some stupendous, tent-pole movie that every Comic-Con customer would love. Of course, none of these rumors thus far (spread by Bryan Singer and his Internet publicity machine) have ever come to fruition. This makes Bryan Singer a "Serial Liar"....

2. Bryan Singer spends 100% more time on the Internet than his peers do, endlessly announcing these fake movie and television projects of his. We rarely hear a word (over the Internet) from legitimate movie directors Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, Joe Johnston, Peter Jackson, and James Cameron; yet they ironically produce 100% more product (individually) for public consumption than Bryan Singer does.
3.Once again, the supposed details of Bryan Singer supposedly being involved with a project just aren't panning out to logical scrutiny:
a. Bryan Singer hasn't been able to come up with a shootable "Battlestar Galactica" script in 12 years, yet he somehow has managed to have a complete, shootable "X-Men" script on his lap a mere week after he announces on his own behalf, that he has been assigned as the director of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" by 20th Century Fox. By any stretch of the imagination, a script is not written that quickly in Hollwood. Not only that, but the title of the movie..."X-Men: Days of Future Past" is missing from this clearly visible cover page of the script, as is Bryan Singer's name as the director, and the author(s) of the script. Standard "Screen Writers Guild" regulations for legitimate scripts. What script is this really? And to what amateur high school play does it really belong to?
b. Bryan Singer has been prematurely announcing (on "Twitter") the "X-Men" actors as being involved in this project when in fact they aren't locked in contractually. Not Patrick Stewart, not Ian McKellan, not Hugh Jackman.
Bryan Singer seems to have developed a "green with envy" admiration of Joss Whedon's "Avengers" movie, and perhaps wishes that he had directed it. In his own dreams perhaps, he wants to compete with "The Avengers" with a new "X-Men" movie, with or without the permission of 20th Century Fox formally assigning him as the director.
There seems to be this "odd, good will huddling around Bryan Singer" that seems to be going on by the former "X-Men" cast members who although are not locked in contractually as Bryan Singer prematurely announced on "Twitter" (much to their varying degrees of irritation), they still want to rally around him in good faith even if the movie is never made. Partially due to the fact that the "X-Men" cast members feel sorry for Bryan Singer and his previous and chronic career failures?
Bryan Singer seems to want to atone for the massive list of movies and television productions he never made thus far (listed above), by cranking out yet another "X-Men" movie, thinking that that will make things "all better."
It's never good when Bryan Singer is captured on videotape making one of his lies. This lie on Auguast 3rd, 2012. Sort of like "Bigfoot" or the "Loch Ness Monster" being captured on videotape for the first time.
Or this press release with Bryan Singer's obvious involvement on October 21st, 2011.
Whatever has been going on with Bryan Singer and his career for quite some time is not certain. What is certain however, is that Bryan Singer and his career has not been on the level for quite some time and has been an endless series of lies for quite some time.
The Internet is currently "ablaze" with all sorts of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and Bryan Singer rumors. I can't help but ask, what will Bryan Singer's next project be...really..?
I've said it before and I'll say it again. It is my belief that "Superman Returns" killed Bryan Singer's career as a big budget, tent pole film director.
He has a future career in television as a commercial director / sitcom director / low budget horror movie director for the SyFy Channel under endless pseudonyms.
It would seem (from what I can gather), that if anything legitimately comes together for Bryan Singer to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past", it would be a gesture of "sympathetic charity" from 20th Century Fox and the "X-Men" cast members.
20th Century Fox / X-Men Cast Members:
"Let's give the little guy one more chance to make a financially successful, multi-million dollar movie."
This sort of charity of course, non-existent in the "business / dollars" environment of Hollywood. But the only way Singer would ever be allowed to direct a multi-million dollar movie (of the scope of "Superman Returns") ever again.
