Bryan Singer Looking to Direct Image Comics' THE AGE OF HEROES

X-Men director Bryan Singer is currently developing X-Men: Apocalypse for 20th Century Fox. He's expected to direct the film regardless of the sexual abuse scandal and lawsuit. But who knows what will happen if things go badly for him. 

Fox President of Production Emma Watts told THR, "Right now we are totally at the outlining phase [on X-Men: Apocalypse]. But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It's always been the intention for [Bryan] to do it." 

So if it doesn't "all work out" does that mean Singer won't be directing X-Men: Apocalypse? I guess we'll have to wait and see how this all plays out. Singer is already prepping a new project for him to take on if Apocalypse doesn't work out, or as something he can do after. The Tracking Board is reporting that Singer and his production company, Bad Hat Harry Productions, have picked up the rights to the 1990s Image Comics series The Age of Heroes. They've also hired Alex Hollister to write the script.

Here is some story information for Age of Heroes:

When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make his way in a world full of monsters and arcane magic, some rose up to right wrongs and create justice. This was known as The Age of Heroes.

Seven misfits and outcasts were brought together by fate. They are presented with a problem the gods themselves can't solve. For the gods are no longer in the world. They are Drake, the blind bard. Conor, a one-armed sell sword. Glinda the weaver. Mael, knight of the burning crystal. Wex, a Dalen monk. Luko and Aerwyn, clever thieves. The actions of these seven will usher in a new age. The Age of Heroes.
