X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn is currently off of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Deadline reports that the director has stepped away for the time being and now lots of sites are running stories about X-Men director Bryan Singer filling in the chair if needed.
I surely hope this isn’t the case, because I strongly believe that part of why First Class worked so well was because of Vaughn and his ability to get such strong performances out of Michael Fassbender and the rest of the crew. I also think Vaughn exceeded in making the film a little more appealing to non-comic book fans that were simply looking for a good summer popcorn flick.
Vaughn also recently decided not to direct Kick-Ass 2, which is another complete bummer.
I sure hope he decides to return!
