It's learned that X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer has cancelled a planned appearance at this weekend's WonderCon after allegations of sexual assault surfaced involving a 17-year-old boy from 15 years ago.

Deadline reports that in Singer's place, Fox Studios will be sending Simon Kinberg who wrote and produced X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

It's also suggested that Singer may not be available for promotional interviews for the film as well.

Earlier it was reported that ABC had pulled promotions for a new series which had Singer's name attached to it.

Fox Studios released an official statement earlier today responding to the allegations.

“These are serious allegations, and they will be resolved in the appropriate forum,” a Fox representative said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon. “This is a personal matter, which Bryan Singer and his representatives are addressing separately."

Michael Egan has filed a federal lawsuit against Bryan Singer alleging Singer drugged and raped him, provided drugs and alcohol and accused Singer of being a part of a Hollywood pedophile ring.

Singer's lawyers have strongly denied the accusations.
