Vaughn out of X-Men Sequel

What? No! Well maybe?

By Robert T. Trate     October 25, 2012
Source: Deadline.com

Earlier I posted the news that producer Mark Millar hinted at Sentinels in the X-Men: First Class sequel (see article). As cool as that story was, about the Days of Future Past storyline, Deadline.com broke a heart wrenching story for all fans of the X-Men movie franchise. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) has decided to not direct the sequel. The crazier part of this story is two things:

1. Matthew Vaughn has decided to direct the big screen adaptation of Mark Millar’s Secret Service. Strange as Millar is the executive producer of X-Men: Days of Future Past

2. Bryan Singer, yes that Bryan Singer, is now on the studios short list of directors to take over the film. Thus prompting the man who started the X-Men movies to take back the director seat of the franchise. 

Will X-Men: Days of Future Past make its July 18th, 2014 start date?

At this point, I do not care. I thought First Class was cheesy, and LOADED with anachronysms. (Micro mini skirts in 1962? use of the word "groovy" then? Don't think so)  Fox has dicked around with the franchise so much, I just don't care where it goes.

 Definitely not an encouraging sign.

 Well, X2 is still my favorite of the X-Men movies, which was directed by Bryan Singer, so I wouldn't mind him continuing on with whats already set in place.  First Class is a good movie but we have yet to see the X-Men movie we have all been waiting for. It always seems that each movie short changes the fans.

It's too bad Vaughn backed out.  He's still producing.  And since Singer is a producer and former X-Men director it's probably easiest for him to quickly jump in rather than finding someone that has had nothing to do with the films up to this point.

 the man just diden't have the Balls to handle this project,  chicken shit, punk.. now people don't go and back him up there is no point, he knew what he was geting in to from the start and   now he just takes the easy way out, what a load of crap..

I wonder if Millar will bring this kind of clarity to his new job as creative "czar" for Warner's DC projects?  Hyping the approach your director is taking while your director seems to be quitting almost simultaneously doesn't fill me with confidence.

Not Warner's DC projects... Fox's Marvel projects, isn't it?

No, maybe I'm wrong...
