Matthew Vaughn signs on to direct X-Men: First Class sequel
There's an interesting history involving Vaughn and this franchise. Vaughn was set to take over the original X-Men franchise from Bryan Singer, when Singer left to direct Superman Returns. Vaughn did not believe in the script for X-Men: The Last Stand and did not feel he had enough time to prepare for the film. So he handed over the film to the eventual director, Brett douchebag Ratner.
I love the news that Vaughn has signed on and look forward to where he can take the franchise.
