Bryan Singer, director and producer of several "X-Men" films, including the upcoming movie "X-Men: Days of Future Past," is accused of raping and drugging a teenage boy in the 1990s, according to a recent lawsuit, while his lawyer says the claims are "completely without merit."

The suit was filed in a federal court in Hawaii on Wednesday. The accuser, Michael Egan, claims Singer, 48, "manipulated his power, wealth and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit" him and that he suffered "catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries" as a result.
