For fans, the director (and writer) should be fiercely loyal to the source material.
James Cameron and other high profile, big name directors are likely to have their own take and their own agenda. And you end up with something like the Transformers movie, which barely resembles the source material.
What the X-Men film franchise needs is their own Peter Jackson, someone who's devoted to see the X-books in all their glory on the big screen. That could be Whedon, since he is a devoted X-fan.
