Fall out from Bryan Singer's sexual abuse allegations spreads

When news broke that Bryan Singer had been accused of sexually assaulting an underage teen boy, it sent shockwaves through the internet. Not surprisingly, there was a strong backlash against the director, and while he has denied the accusation and threatened to counter sue his accuser, this does not seem to have been enough. A Saturday story by Perez Hilton revealed that 20th Century Fox and ABC are having to make some last minute changes to two large projects that are nearing their release dates.

In addition to canceling an appearance at WonderCon, Singer has been forced to cancel other appearances for his coming projects. Yet, these are not the only changes that Bryan Singer has had to make in response to his molestation accusations. He was currently working on a new television series for ABC title “Black Box”, and the network has pulled any advertisements that directly mention that Bryan Singer was associated with the project.

While Fox has decided not to postpone the release of “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, it was revealed that Bryan Singer may not attend any of the premiers or junkets. As the repercussions of the scandal continue to reverberate throughout the media, it has led many to wonder whether the sexual assault scandal will impact the box office sales for “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.

However, a Friday story by The New York Daily News argues that the movie will unlikely experience any negative results from the accusations. In particular, the story observes that if the allegations were against a major actor in the film, then it would be far more likely to have a negative effect on sales. Most audience members are not familiar with directors, and as a result, they will be unlikely to care about the allegations enough to avoid seeing the film.

Will the sexual abuse allegations against Bryan Singer influence your decision to see “X-Men: Days of Future Past”?
