Will Bryan Singer Be Handed a Budget in The Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Ever Again?
Is it back to involuntary, low budget filmmaking for Bryan Singer?
Bryan Singer doing his own Internet marketing and "Tweeting" had absolutely no positive impact on "Jack The Giant Slayer." Just as Universal Studios decade long Internet marketing for "GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome" had no positive impact on those productions either.
Universal Studios and Bryan Singer can take away the lesson from these bad experiences that if you have rotten products to begin with ("Jack The Giant Slayer", "GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome"), no amount of Internet marketing or insulting the general public on Internet bboards via "Abraham & Harrison" will save your products.
Bryan Singer is still in the director's chair (if he ever was in the first place) of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" after the present failing of "Jack The Giant Slayer" at the box office? If you were the head of 20th Century Fox what would you do? Get a new director?
Bryan Singer's career prospects have gone from the somewhat promising debuts of "Apt Pupil" and "Usual Suspects" to the moderately ok "X-Men" and "X-Men 2" to the crashing to the depths of "Superman Returns", to the moderately ok "Valkyrie" to the current (I think the turkey is done) "Jack The Giant Slayer."
After an unfortunate career like that thus far, and the ever growing list below...what is next for Bryan Singer?
1. A permanent transition to television movie / sitcom director.
2. Directing more "Magnum Gold Ice Cream Commercials."
3. Doing projects for the SyFy Channel.

21. The Twilight Zone (Abandonment Pending)
22. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
23. Footballers Wives
24. X-Men Origins: Magneto
25. Superman: The Man of Steel
And with "Jack The Giant Slayer" currently bombing at the box office, what does this mean for the future prospects of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and the "Twilight Zone" remake for CBS-TV?
