Michael F. Egan III, the man suing director Bryan Singer for allegedly sexually-assaulting him as a teenager, said that despite his horrific accusations against the filmmaker, he is as excited as the rest of America is to see the director’s highly-anticipated summer blockbuster, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
“Now that I’ve addressed the issue of the boy that was drugged and sexually assaulted in the late ’90s, we can address the fan boy who is thrilled to see the characters from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ team up with the characters from ‘X-Men: First Class’ for an ‘Avengers’ level cinematic event,” Egan III told Hollywood & Swine. “Did you guys see that trailer? How is Professor Xavier walking around if he got paralyzed at the end of ‘X-Men: First Class?’ I haven’t been this confused since Bryan Singer gave me one of those weird tasting drinks at his pool party in Hawaii.”
During the press conference Egan III also accused Singer of ripping off the plot of the Season 4 episode of “Lost” entitled “The Constant,” in which the character of Desmond uses his subconscious to travel through time, for the plot of “X-Men: Days of Futures Past.” Bryan Singer immediately dismissed this claim, calling it as unfounded as the rest of Egan’s accusations.
“I want clear up three things,” Singer said. “First off, I never sexually-assaulted anyone. Second, if we’re ripping off anyone in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ it’s Kurt Vonnegut’s ‘Slaughterhouse-Five.’ And third and most importantly, despite rumors on the contrary, the pool party after the ‘X-Men’ premiere is still on.”
