Looks like Bryan Singer's come up with a way to save us from having to update Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and all our other social media accounts every 30 seconds—why not just stay wired in to each other all the time? Which sounds like it could be a good idea ... until the teaser for H+ shows it might be a nightmare instead.
A bunch of new details have come to light concerning that failed Bryan Singer Star Trek series pitch. Titled Star Trek: Federation, it would have featured a new character, one with the very familiar name ... of Kirk.
Just a few days ago, we told you that CBS/Paramount had rejected Star Trek TV pitches from William Shatner and Jonathan Frakes—as well as from Bryan Singer—before J.J. Abrams successfully brought the franchise back with 2009's Star Trek. Now there are some cool details on Singer's failed Star Trek TV pilot proposal.

Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-Men movies and is producing X-Men: First Class, is already hinting at the next chapter in the series, and what characters could step to the forefront.
With X-Men and X2, Bryan Singer proved that great super-hero movies were possible.

Now Singer hopes to return to the franchise—and direct another X-movie once again.
Perhaps in response to that somewhat questionable cast shot—featuring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, January Jones and company—that leaked a few days ago, Fox has made with the goods. And, boy, are they '60s-shagadelic.
We recently showed you how the planned Tim Burton/Nicholas Cage Superman Lives movie would have looked if it had gone ahead. Today, we have some concept art from two MORE abandoned Superman projects—Bryan Singer's sequel to Superman Returns and J.J. Abrams' Superman Fly By.
It turns out that taxi drivers are NOT the best source of info for what's going on with upcoming movies. (Who knew?) Remember when we reported yesterday that a cabbie drove Hugh Jackman from the airport to the locale where X-Men: First Class was filming, and how it might mean a Wolverine cameo?
So Harry Knowles over at Aint It Cool News got a call from Bryan Singer with all kinds of juicy news about X-Men: First Class, the upcoming prequel/reboot (take your pick) that explores the early friendship of Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr before they became better known as Professor X and Magneto and found themselves on opposite sides of the mutant debate.
