Bryan Singer No Longer Attending WonderCon to Promote 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'


Bryan Singer


Producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg is set to fill in for the director who cancelled his appearance amidst the sexual abuse accusation against him.

Bryan Singer's appearance at WonderCon has been canceled following the sexual abuse allegation against him. He was supposed to join a panel this coming Saturday, April 19 to support "X-Men: Days of Future Past", but now producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg is sent by Fox to replace the director.

A representative for the studio has also responded to the sexual abuse lawsuit, "These are serious allegations, and they will be resolved in the appropriate forum." The rep added, "This is a personal matter, which Bryan Singer and his representatives are addressing separately."

ABC is also distancing themselves from the "X-Men" helmer who serves as an executive producer for their new show "Black Box". His name has been removed from promo ads for the soon-to-be-premiered series.

Michael F. Egan III, the man who filed the lawsuit against Singer, recently held a press conference to detail the alleged abuse that happened while he was a teen. "I was raped numerous times in that house, by numerous individuals. You were like a piece of meat to these people," he said.

The director's lawyer, Martin Singer, reacted, "The claims made today about Bryan Singer are completely fabricated. We look forward to our bringing a claim for malicious prosecution against Mr. Egan and his attorney after we prevail."

When "X-Men: Apocalypse" was first announced late last year, Bryan Singer was also attached to return behind the lens. The movie is due May 27, 2016.
