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.
