The much-anticipated “X-Men: Days of Future Past” hits theaters on May 23rd, but director Bryan Singer may be too distracted by a new lawsuit to enjoy the fanfare.

The “Usual Suspects” helmsman has been accused by Michael Egan for allegedly molesting him back in 1998 when he was 17 years old.

Egan claims Bryan “manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries,”

Furthermore, Michael says that Singer was involved in additional situations with other underage boys as part of a “sordid sex ring of males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry.”

However, Bryan’s attorney Marty Singer fired back, “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”
