Bryan was born in New York, in September 1965, but he was adopted and brought up by a Jewish family in New Jersey. He was educated at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South until 1984, after which he decided to study film-making at New York’s School of Visual Arts. However, two years later, Singer shifted to the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles, where he finished his studies. There he met his future colleagues, composer and editor John Ottman and co-producer Kenneth Kokin.

Shortly after graduation, Ryan directed a film called “Lion’s Den” (1988), which involved the participation of several of his friends, including Ethan Hawke and John Ottman. He then achieved his first notable success by being named as one of the winners of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 1993, for his film “Public Access”. A year later, Bryan founded his own production company, naming it “Bad Hat Harry”. In 1995, in cooperation with writer Christopher McQuarrie, Singer directed the film “The Usual Suspects” which turned out to be his biggest success so far. The film won numerous awards, some of which were 1995 BAFTA Award for Best Film and Saturn Award for Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film. He also directed the film adaptation of Stephen King’s novella “Apt Pupil” (1998), which tells the story of a boy fascinated with a Nazi war criminal.

Bryan’s accomplishments continued throughout the 2000s. After initially refusing to direct “X-Men”, due to his lack of knowledge of characters and comics, he eventually reconsidered the offer and signed to direct the film. Along with his friend Tom DeSanto, Singer established the story for the film and released it in July 2000. “X-Men” won Bryan a Saturn Award for Best Direction the same year. In 2002, he began the filming of the sequel “X2” in Canada. Two years later the film was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form. Of course both these films contributed significantly to his net worth.

Singer was then offered to direct “Superman Returns” for Warner Bros which he accepted, and filming took place in Australia in 2005. The movie was released a year later, earning Bryan another Saturn Award, this time for the Best Director, thus increasing his net worth even more.

Some of Singer’s latest achievements include directing the film “X-Men:Days of Future Past” (2014), and he is currently working on the next movie in the series, the “X-Men: Apocalypse”, which is scheduled for release in May 2016.

Bryan Singer is an open bisexual, having dated both men and women in the past. He recently became a father when actress Michelle Clunie gave birth to their son in January 2015. Singer has had several legal issues, having been accused of sexually assaulting a minor in 1997 and 2014. The first charge was dismissed due to insufficient evidence and the second one was withdrawn.

1Frequently works with Ian McKellen (Apt Pupil, the X-Men films)
2Recurring theme of alienation in his films
3Often works with cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel
4Frequently uses music by John Ottman
1Before Jaws (1975), there was no such thing as a summer blockbuster. It's my favorite film of all time. My production company is called Bad Hat Harry, which is a line in Jaws. Everything comes back to Jaws. It defines us. It created the summer movie. It still scares the shit out of people today and is one of the most structurally unconventional films in the mainstream lexicon. Basically, the first half of the movie is An Enemy of the People (1978) and the second half is Moby Dick (1956). It's two movies, split in half right down the middle, and it works remarkably. It changed the course of film history.
2One thing that interests me is the notion of ancient mutants. What would people, thousands of years ago, without the benefit of science, think mutants were? And more importantly, what would mutants, thousands of years ago, think they were? Gods? Titans? Angels? Demons? And if such mutants did exist thousands of years ago, what became of them? Did one survive?
3On Tom Cruise: If you look at Tom's work, there's a lot of very strange characters. People very often leap right to the Mission: Impossible and the Top Gun roles when they think of him. But he started as a character actor in Taps (1981) - nobody really thought of him as a leading man until Risky Business (1983). And then after Top Gun he was a superstar. But look, there's Rain Man (1988), where he plays a real prick. And he played the hitman in Collateral (2004). He really is interested in playing challenging roles; he's a terrific actor. I really think he's an actor who happens to be a movie star.
4There's no point in making films unless you intend to show us something special, otherwise just go out and watch a play. Kubrick showed us something special. Every film was a challenge, and a direct assault on cinema's conventions.
5I identify with Superman. I am adopted, I am an only child, and I love the idea that he comes from another world, that he's the ultimate immigrant. He has all these extraordinary powers, and he has a righteousness about him.
6Superman has always been about Lois Lane, Superman and Clark Kent and this love triangle between these three people who really are only two people.
7[About casting Brandon Routh as Superman/Clark Kent in Superman Returns (2006)]: I was always dead set on casting an unknown. Brandon embodied the character the best -- his acting talent, physical presence and personality.
8[About Superman's costume for Superman Returns (2006)]: I always had the general idea of the suit. With X-Men, although they had extraordinary powers, they also had physical weaknesses. The suits were for protection as well as costume. Superman is the Man of Steel. Bullets bounce off him, not the suit.
1Bryan is the father of Dashiell Julius William Clunie-Singer, who was born on January 5, 2015. Actress Michelle Clunie is the child's mother.
2Was considered to direct Alien: Resurrection (1997) but turned it down in favor of X-Men (2000).
3Turned down the opportunity to direct X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) to direct Superman Returns (2006).
4Was at one point attached to direct Logan's Run.
5Turned down the chance to direct ''X-Men'' three times because he believed that comic books were unintelligent. He changed his mind after reading some of the comics and watching the animated series.
6Considered to direct the thriller film Prisoners (2013).
7Was set to direct Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) but turned it down due schedule conflicts with X2 (2003).
8Attended the San Diego Comic-Con in a surprise appearance to promote his movie X-Men (2000). [July 2000]
9Directed one Oscar winning performance: Kevin Spacey in The Usual Suspects (1995).
10The third director to do three live-action adaptations of a comic book series. The first being Sam Raimi with his Spider Man trilogy and the second being Christopher Nolan with his Batman trilogy.
11Turned down the chance to direct X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), as he was too busy with other projects.
12Best friends with director Gary Goddard and childhood friends with actor Ethan Hawke.
13DC Comics offered Singer access to the 20-plus years of development information that Superman has had since 1986, but Singer vehemently refused to use this information, instead insisting that he use only the continuity of the Richard Donner films.
14Ranked #46 on Premiere magazine's 2006 "Power 50" list. It is his first appearance on the list.
15Is a huge fan of the original Star Trek (1966) series and has a cameo appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) as a crewman on the bridge of the USS Enterprise.
16Received a copy of the mockumentary Forgotten Silver (1995) as a gift from director Peter Jackson, to thank him for finishing Ian McKellen's scenes in X-Men (2000) in time for him to fly to New Zealand and begin work on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001).
17One of his favorite movies is the thriller film Jaws (1975). His production company, Bad Hat Harry Productions, is named after a line said by Chief Martin Brody in the film.
18Cousin of actors Marc Singer, Gregory Singer, Lori Singer, Claude Singer.
19Attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City for a brief period of time but did not graduate from there. Visited the school in October 2000 to talk to the film students about his experiences in the film industry.
