I know I'm super late to the party and I knew it was coming, but just finished issue 100 of the comics and wow wow wow.

Yeah, that was a rough one.   :-\

If it was just the director I would probably skip this film but I'm thinking about the half dozen or more actors and actresses that are in this that I like.  It's a story I want to see, written by a guy I trust with actors that I respect... So? IDK.  I'm probably still going to go see it.

I already had some qualms about seeing this movie BEFORE this news came to light.  The story alone is one of the most legendary story arcs in the history of the X-Men comics.  Could a film ever do it justice?

And now?  I really feel that I cannot in good conscience go to see this movie.

But THIS STORY?  It's a whole new level of creepy.  And while I had begun to warm up to the idea of this new X-Men film, now I feel like doing that would just be wrong.

I keep coming back to one question:  If Jerry Sandusky directed a kick-ass X-Men movie, would I go to see it?  And it's really hard to answer yes.

Wow.  This story is horrendous, to say the least.  From reading some of the stories about the plaintiff, he and others have already successfully sued other defendents for molestation.  So this isn't just someone who's looking to do a hit job on Bryan Singer in advance of one of his movies coming out.  And evidently in Hawaii, where some of the legal action is being pursued, there was a window of opportunity to pursue a lawsuit for sexual abuse that is due to close very soon.  From what I gather the statute of limitations may have passed for any kind of prosecution.  But a judgement against Singer in civil court will without a doubt damage his reputation as a filmmaker.

I know that there have been some fanboy grumblings about Bryan Singer and his homosexuality.  Some of that has revolved around him and his casting of Brandon Routh in Superman Returns, and an overall unseemly angle.  I chalked a lot of that up to fanboys not liking the movie, being cruel and homophobic.  But THIS STORY?  It's a whole new level of creepy.  And while I had begun to warm up to the idea of this new X-Men film, now I feel like doing that would just be wrong.

He'll probably end up Making the next X-men movies in Europe with Roman Polanski.

There is a Primantis right there too.  Walking distance of that Olive Garden really just up a light or two.  Any time you have free time when you come in for the show let me know! :)

If it's going to be a relative....I hope it's a child or grandchild of a sibling of Obi-Wan's.  It would make more sense and preserve the Obi-Wan character as we know him.
