But his departure left the way for the original X director to take come back and fix the **** that Ratner ****ed up.

Millar himself said that his project took priority over DOFP because he feared someone was going to use the (totally unoriginal) concept first and that's why Vaughn left. Vaughn had directed the somewhat successful prequel/reboot of a flailing franchise and the studio wanted him to helm the sequel, but Millar at the very least was instrumental in preventing that from happening. Personally, I find that hilarious and fitting, but it was a ****ty thing to do to his new employers.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
