Default Re: Matthew Vaughn Is NOT Helming X-Men: First Class Sequel - Part 1

Makes me wonder how much of FC was actually his considering how quickly and easily he dropped the sequel.
He's notorious for dropping out of things, though. At one point he walked away from First Class too. And of course, his 'contract expired' on Thor and he bailed on X3 and on Kick-Ass 2.

But I'd be interested to hear what Vaughn himself originally had in mind for the sequel. I'm sure he'll be asked about it at some point and maybe he will tell us (though Josh Schwartz has never ever revealed what was in his script for X-Men First Class before Singer came on board).

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
