Matthew Vaughn Exits X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

By AMC October 26, 2012

In surprising (and somewhat disappointing) news, it is being reported that "X-Men: First Class" director Matthew Vaughn has decided not to helm "X-Men: Days of future Past".

Vaughn will still produce the planned sequel to 2011's hit comic-book movie prequel "X-Men: First Class", but as Deadline reports is, "pretty picky on projects that he directs.”

In fact, he passed on both "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" (before changing his mind and boarding the latter).

There are no specific reasons provided for the departure, but Vaughn may just intend to move on to fresh material as it looks as though he may direct "Secret Service", one of Mark Millar’s properties, for Fox.

Vaughn, of course, directed the adaptation of Millar's beloved comic "Kick-Ass".

In an interesting twist, Bryan Singer (the director of the first two "X-Men" movies) may take over the helming duties on "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

If Singer does decide to direct the film, it will likely calm the nerves of anxious fans. His "X-Men" offerings are widely considered to be two of the best comic book films to date.
