If you've been following director 's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, you're either getting more pumped each day or you're just tired of its overexposure. In between hanging out with a gay porn star, talking to , and revealing new mutants in the film's ensemble cast, it sometimes feels as if the man's directing duties have fallen to the wayside in favor of being a one man PR team on the Twitter time suck. Of course, I'm being melodramatic, but at this point I wouldn't be surprised if the movie's title comes complete with hashtags. The man just can't get his thumbs to stop telling the world about and casually giving away .

Still, the fact that Bryan Singer is and keeps me coming back for more. Days of Future Past is clearly one of the comic's standout storylines. No matter what happens, I firmly stand by my convictions that this will be way more solid than the half-baked Dark Phoenix Saga in The Last Stand. Sure, Singer is taking some liberties, but when he's done so in the past he always remains faithful in spirit to the source material.

The latest from Singer's happy thumbs lets us know that something dreadful is going to happen in Paris, France. Like, something worse than a baguette shortage. Whatever happens is serious enough that the President of the United States (most likely someone portraying Richard Nixon) feels the need to have a press conference addressing the American people about it. Take a look:

"Today we face the greatest threat in our history. What the world witnessed in Paris was not an isolated incident."

My feelings:

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on July 18, 2014.
