Garcia has worked for eight years with director Bryan Singer, including the last five as VP of production of the helmer’s Bad Hat Harry Prods.

During his tenure, Garcia oversaw the production of “Superman Returns,” “Trick ‘r Treat,” “Valkyrie,” Sci Fi Channel miniseries “The Triangle” and the first three seasons of the Fox TV series “House.” “Superman Returns” and “Trick ‘r Treat” were produced in partnership with Legendary.
