It’s almost hard to believe that the last "X-Men" film Bryan Singer directed came out almost ten years ago. While the franchise continued to live on in spite of his absence for a number of years, an influx of other, more successful superhero films were birthed in the process, making it more difficult for the "X-Men" franchise to stand out among the pack. But Singer came back on board as a producer for the hit 2011 prequel “X-Men: First Class” and now, as the director of the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” he hopes to continue to steer the franchise in the right direction, which means making some important decisions.

Well, it looks like the gang's all here. Rumors ran rampant that Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" would be bringing back a number of the series' more well-known characters, with Hugh Jackman confirmed to appear alongside Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan. But Bryan Singer has confirmed via Twitter that, not only are they looking to bring back as many cast members as possible from the original trilogy, but that Brett Ratner's lambasted "X-Men: The Last Stand" is definitely canon.

Not content with stepping in to save "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" after Matthew Vaughn bailed on directing, it now looks like Bryan Singer is going put his hand in another geek favorite property, but this time, on the small screen.

Director Bryan Singer probably wasn't envisioning coming back to the "X-Men" series this soon. At least not until the potential"X-Men 4" film. Still early in development, that picture isn't arriving anytime soon, but obviously that notion was being explored. Instead, Singer was busy executive producing his many TV shows and the "X-Men" series as relaunched and spearheaded by Matthew Vaughn, with "X-Men: First Class." But Vaughn left the director's chair on that series last week and much like Peter Jackson, who stepped in to take over his baby and helm "The Hobbit" after Guillermo del Toro left the project, Singer is jumping back in the pole position.

To put it bluntly, Matthew Vaughn didn't have the most pleasant shooting schedule on "X-Men: First Class." With about ten months from shoot to screen, the director was ridiculously hard pressed for time, and even found himself cycling through five cinematographers on the tumultuous shoot. January Jones famously joked, “Poor (director) Matthew Vaughn is going to have to edit it in three days. That’s been a blast. We’ve all had so much fun making that movie. I think it was unrealistic for them to think they were going to make such a huge movie in whatever we had — two months or something. So of course we went over [schedule]." It's not exactly an ideal situation, and perhaps Vaughn has seen the writing on the wall for "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

As studios, distributors, and filmmakers in general continue to look for refreshing new ways to have their work seen by as wide an audience as possible -- whether it be on television, digital shorts, etc. -- one of those potentially promising outlets seems to be the web series format. While we can't say that a particularly successful title sticks out to us at the moment (besides maybe the hilarious "Burning Love" created by Ken Marino), producer Bryan Singer looks to be offering up something that will surely entice the resident sci-fi enthusiasts.

With Michael Mann and David Milch's HBO show "Luck," which features filmic talent like Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Michael Gambon and Joan Allen, among others, being picked up for a second season only days after the first episode aired, the spate of cinematic types dipping their toe into television shows no sign of letting up, particularly as it's currently the time of year where networks are comissioning pilots. And as such, there's a brace of TV news from the last few days featuring names best known for their big-screen work.

Very occasionally, the trades do something known in the journalism trade as "burying the lede" -- dropping a hint of a separate story in a piece about something else entirely, which can often be passed over at first glance. As it turns out, there's been a couple of examples of this in the last few days: potential projects hinted at by some names who've been in the news a lot of late.

We're not even sure why they're resurrecting "The Munsters," other than perhaps some executive at NBC heard from this daughter that monsters were cool and dusted off the old TV show, but this thing is happening. And if you though they couldn't make a bad idea sound worse, well, they can.

It seems Bryan Singer is on a bit of a nostalgia kick right now. Earlier this fall, he earned buzz when he revealed he would be bringing the '70s sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica" to the big screen, and he was recently rumored to be eyeing "The Six Billion Dollar Man" (an update on "The Six Million Dollar Man"). But before he gets to either of those, an old cable favorite is getting refreshed for our times.
