Simon Kinberg has been officially named as the director of X-Men: Dark Phoenix and in a new photo, Bryan Singer passes the torch to his frequent collaborator and promises "epic" things to come...

Despite embracing the comics in a way previous movies did not, X-Men: Apocalypse failed to strike a chord with critics and underperformed at the box office. X-Men: Days of Future Past was such a hit that many believed the follow-up would reach $1 billion, but with that not happening and Bryan Singer eyeing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, it's been obvious for a while that the next movie would have a different filmmaker at the helm. Well, that's now confirmed as being first time director Simon Kinberg.

In a new Instagram post, Bryan Singer has passed the torch to his longtime collaborator and promises that we're getting an "epic story" which is in "great hands." That's debatable, especially as the only thing Kinberg has reportedly directed are those disastrous Fantastic Four reshoots back in 2015. 

We'll just have to wait and see how things pan out, but it's already been confirmed that X-Men: Dark Phoenix is going to take us into outer space with the introduction of the Shi'ar Empire. This will also be Kinberg's second crack at the iconic storyline after he dropped the ball in X-Men: The Last Stand.
