Bryan Singer Says Fox’s X-Men Series Will Be Family Drama

X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer describes Fox‘s planned X-Men spin-off series as “a family drama” that will focus on the interaction between its characters.

As fans of 20th Century Fox‘s long-running film franchise will know, Singer has been involved with the series since the very beginning. Not only did he direct the original X-Men film and X2, he also penned scripts for both and served as an executive producer on the latter production. As if this wasn’t enough, he returned for the second wave of films starting with First Class, which he helped produce and write, before directing Days of Future Past and the previously-mentioned Apocalypse.

Contrasting the upcoming series from the films as well as fellow TV spin-off Legion, Singer explains that the program will feature “effects, powers, and things like that” but mainly revolve around the efforts of the family the show follows to find their place in a world that hates mutants.

CBR.com, the source of this story, had this to say:

Past “X-Men” films have been criticized for lacking this feeling of family. However, if Singer is true to his word, this longstanding element of the “X-Men” franchise might be delivered on the small screen with this new series.

Singer also addressed whether the show will work as a standalone, like “Legion,” or be part of the films’ continuity.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
