Matthew Vaughn will NOT Direct the X-Men: Days of Future Past, but another X-Men director might

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it appears that Matthew Vaughn has decided not to direct the X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The news actually came out yesterday.  No reason has been given just yet.  We'll have to wait a few days to hear the PC excuses.  But there might be a silver lining to all of this...  Bryan Singer could be directing the sequel instead.

All of us nerds remember Singer directed the first two X-Men movies, as well as Superman Returns.  His visual style and storytelling launched the comic book movie genre to a whole other level.  Vaughn revitalized the X-Men franchise after the atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  And perhaps the most impressive thing about it was, he did it in just over a year.

Even though I was really excited for Vaughn to come back, if Singer does take over, I'll be more than okay with it.  What are your thoughts?
