Bryan Singer Drops Out Of All X-MEN: DOFP Promotion; Claims To Have Hawaii Alibi

Bryan Singer Drops Out Of All X-MEN: DOFP Promotion; Claims To Have Hawaii Alibi

In an expected move, it seems the director has decided it'd be best to bow out of all future promotion for his new X-flick in light of the sexual abuse allegations against him. Singer also says that at the time of the alleged abuse, he can prove that he was shooting X-Men 1 in Canada.

Buzzfeed reports that Bryan Singer will not be doing any press to support X-Men: Days of Future Past. We figured this would be the case, as the director has found himself in the middle of a very serious situation involving allegations of rape -- although he has denied any wrongdoing through his lawyer Martin Singer (no relation), who calls the claims made against Singer “completely fabricated.” Singer apparently also has an alibi for the dates Michael Egan claims the abuse took place (Hawaii in August and October, 1999), and says he was in Toronto in the midst of pre-production on the first X-Men film. According to TMZ, he will file credit card bills and various other documents proving he was in Toronto during the times in question.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that this is actually happening.
DrDoom - 4/18/2014, 7:32 PM
I don't care what happens. I just want this to (some how) cause Fox to no longer make X-Men movies.
Bearjew - 4/18/2014, 7:33 PM
I think it's a little [frick]ed up that this dude just brought this to light all of a sudden and a little coincidental that it's just before Day of Future Past I don't think Bryan Singer is a pedophile, at most he had some underage gay sex with a seventeen year old which is almost an adult.
Mike89 - 4/18/2014, 7:35 PM
true or not this is not looking good for singer. I just hope these accusations dont affect the movie in any way. It'll be unfair for the cast and crew involved.
MrCBM56 - 4/18/2014, 7:35 PM
I'll still be seeing the film. [frick]ed up situation at a [frick]ed up time. This won't end well.

This is too funny for words.

I wonder if Singer can prevent Fox from moving forward with a Age of Apocalypse film without him. Maybe do a Mystique film in the intenm if hat other film gets held up
BruceLeroy - 4/18/2014, 7:38 PM
Whether the accusation is true or not, Hollywood does have a problem with pedophilia. Singer wasn't the first Hollywood figure to be accused of despicable behavior and he won't be the last.
HurricaneXavier - 4/18/2014, 7:39 PM
Singer is probably going to settle this out of court, but its not going to matter because the damage is already done.
TheAbomination - 4/18/2014, 7:40 PM
Good call. Whether he did rape him or he didn't, he shouldn't be promoting DOFP as to not harm its box office chances.
Destined - 4/18/2014, 7:40 PM
This timing is mad suspect...hopefully the truth is revealed for all involved.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 4/18/2014, 7:41 PM
Forcing anybody to do sexual acts is disgusting. Someone very close to me went through this for. Singer to want gay rights he certainly doesn't care about a childs right to a kid. I'm still seeing the movie though. Victor Salva(director of Jeepers Creepers) is also a pedophile so Singer has a buddy.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/18/2014, 7:41 PM
Fox Studios gave singer his walking papers!!!
NOLANITE - 4/18/2014, 7:42 PM
The dudes innocent.
I'll back him.
Frick all you haters.
Weird that it was brought up now and not 1999.
I hope the kid burns in MARVEL hell.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/18/2014, 7:43 PM
Michael Jackson at least did a press conference to say his allegations were untrue. I'm waited for singer to speak.
Garrus - 4/18/2014, 7:43 PM
Holy [frick]

We need DISQUS on this site.

Mr. Singer is either a rapist and pedophile, or Mr. Egan is falsely accusing Mr. Singer of being a rapist and a pedophile. One of them is a horrible, HORRIBLE person. Whatever happens, nobody wins in this situation. What a sad story.
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/18/2014, 7:46 PM
@TANK you're [frick]ed up. Honestly. Way to beat a guy when he's down you prick.
BruceLeroy - 4/18/2014, 7:46 PM
Who gives a crap about the timing? If Singer is involved in behavior similar to the accusations he's facing, he should face the consequences.
TheDesertGorilla - 4/18/2014, 7:46 PM
The man is done for!!!
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/18/2014, 7:47 PM
Lol at folks jumping on the potential victim and protecting the potential rapist. Only in America. Now I see why Halle Berry had problems with singer. She should have blown the whistle.
ThrotTheUnclean - 4/18/2014, 7:47 PM
I anxious too see if this alibi "The Finger" pulled out of his ass has any merit. Something like this can be easily figured out.
FirstAvenger - 4/18/2014, 7:48 PM
This will not end well...
santoanderson - 4/18/2014, 7:49 PM
Yeah, Singer can produce all the alibis in the world, but it doesn't change the fact that he was a grown man, in his mid-thirties, going to orgies with teenagers. It isn't a gay thing either. If a straight director, in the same scenario, went to parties like that with underage girls, his career would be dead too.

Wow just wow, evidence is pointy all over singer

Coincidence or not Sibger is looking guilty, and I'm not even going to try to defend him and youall shouldn't either
WeddingTux - 4/18/2014, 7:50 PM
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/18/2014, 7:51 PM
It's crazy. Why would singer put himself in the predicament. Friends with a known convicted sex offender check, pool parties with rules that males must be naked at all times check, young boys living in his household check, parents of young actors on Apt Pupil movie set accused singer in the 90's check, pictures with young boys all over the place check, providing alcohol and cocaine to underage youth at these parties check. I say the roof is on fire.
SauronsBANE - 4/18/2014, 7:51 PM
Cue conspiracy theorists/Singer defenders who are somehow 100% certain that this is all a complete fabrication just to make some money...and cue the Singer haters who will use homophobic slurs to get their hate across.

I believe in innocent until proven guilty, I believe in incriminating evidence, but I just don't understand how people can be so illogically convinced that Singer either did or didn't do this stuff. How can anyone even come close to saying anything for certain? Why not just sit back and just let whatever happen happen? This has nothing to do with us, so why get so invested?
OnePunchBaldy - 4/18/2014, 7:52 PM
Holy shit... this is just sad
MikeHawk - 4/18/2014, 7:52 PM
You people here are some real keyboard warriors arent you? Praising this kind of accusation so a frickin MOVIE PROPERTY will go towards your preferred marvel studios? Jeez, the seflishness. I do not think Singer is a pedophile but i might consider that he did have sex with Egan, who was at the time and place, legal. Why would this idiot make multiple trips to Hawaii?
OnePunchBaldy - 4/18/2014, 7:52 PM
I'll still watch DOFP in order to support the cast and the franchise.
CaptShipwreck - 4/18/2014, 7:54 PM
Future so far not looking good
elib - 4/18/2014, 7:55 PM
A family member of mine did some freelance work on Supeman Returns. They told me that Singer would bring young males to set all the time and then leave with them. Apparently this has been known in the industry for some time and people just kept it on the down low
SuperCat - 4/18/2014, 7:55 PM
Damn Singer. I'll still see the movie.
