Makes me wonder how much of FC was actually his considering how quickly and easily he dropped the sequel.
Well considering that Fox is known for tight deadlines and being very difficult for directors to work with, there's no way of knowning why he moved on. It's also important to remember that every X-Men film has been rushed into production. Creative people don't like being rushed to deliver a product just for the sake of getting it out.
I'm really surprised at the people just willing to write Vaughn off when it comes to First Class. If you really can't tell how much of the film was his then you need watch Singer's X-Men and First Class back to back. There are two totally different styles of filmmaking at work in those films. Vaughn is also on record as saying that he made the X-Men film "he" wanted make.
