Matthew Vaughn signs on to direct X-Men: First Class sequel

X-Men: First Class was one of my favorite films of 2011, and one of the best superhero films ever made.  Vaughn's directing style elevated the film to the top of the superhero crop that was released in 2011.

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.
