While Joe Carnahan continues to mull over which one of the many feature film projects he wants to direct next, it looks like he’ll be getting involved in helming another network drama, following the premiere this week of "The Blacklist." CBS has tapped him to direct their drama series project “Angel Time,” which is based on characters from Anne Rice’s “The Songs of the Seraphim” novel series.

X-Men Days Of Future Past Peter Dinklage
You would think given how much continues to pour out of the "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" mill that the movie was coming out in a month and not next year, but especially given how limply "The Wolverine" performed at home, we suppose we can understand Fox putting all their muscle behind the flick. After all, it's the granddaddy of their superhero movies, the cash cow they hope will keep minting money and making fanboys happy, and they are literally putting as much as they can into the next effort (seriously, name an X-Men character who isn't in 'First Class'). And so today, comes a couple new looks at the movie.

With some movies it's no surprise why they flopped hard, while others we scratch our head at their popularity, but one movie that perhaps didn't deserve its ugly fate was "Jack The Giant Slayer." Granted, it did open at number one when it hit theaters, but it was quickly pummelled by "Oz The Great And Powerful" and largely forgotten. And now, it looks like it may be one of the years biggest flops and we haven't even reached May.

Bryan Singer Says Leaving 'X-Men' Was 'Traumatizing,' Admits 'Superman Returns' Was "Too Reverential"

Currently on a publicity tour for "Jack the Giant Slayer" and working to bring together "X-Men: Days of Future Past," the next leg of the reinvigorated X-Men franchise, Bryan Singer has spoken of how difficult he found it letting them go the first time around, when he departed the franchise (of which he directed the first two installments) in favor of rival superhero picture "Superman Returns."

Ah, Twitter, where everything from raging political discourse (in 144 characters or less) to fake Michael Haneke accounts to tweets of funny cat videos all co-exist. And Bryan Singer is a fan of the social media, circumventing ye boring olde trades, to drop updates and announcements on the tool that lets him reach fans right away. And with the week closing out, he's shared a few more surprises.

Because "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" doesn't already have a big enough cast with Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Hugh Jackman all slated to appear in one way or another, it seems the cast just keeps getting bigger.

It's probably pretty well accepted that we're skeptical of "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." Will it be the "Terminator: Salvation" of the series? Yes, we're happy that Bryan Singer is back (sorry about the box-office on "Jack The Giant Slayer," dude), but not only is time travel a thorny bitch, it gets even more complicated (and admittedly ambitious) to mix characters from different eras of a franchise. 'Days Of Future Past' will mix members of the original "X-Men" cast – Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, etc. with members of the "X-Men: First Class" cast – James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, etc. Essentially, that's the younger versions of Professor X and Magneto meeting up with the older versions in some wacky time travel scenario that feels like a recipe for disaster (continuity will be a bitch).

Once the news came in last week that Peter Dinklage would be joining the cast of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” it did not take long for the rumors to begin swirling about. Would he be playing Puck or Toad? Then we wondered if he could be playing a fully CGI character. Turns out it’ll be none of the above, as director Bryan Singer recently confirmed to IGN.

Okay, so we're less than 24 hours from when it was first announced that Peter Dinklage would be joining "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and the rumor mill is in full swing. His character is being kept under wraps, which led many to start ruminating on who he could be, with the actor's unique size suggesting he might be Puck or Toad. But a couple new bits of info have changed the thinking a little bit.
