Personally, I find that hilarious and fitting, but it was a ****ty thing to do to his new employers.
This is true but he also said that he and Vaughn didn't want to see someone else do their script. I took from that that they both decided this. I mean just because Millar wanted Vaughn to do the movie doesn't mean Vaughn had to. He chose to. Millar is partly to blame but I feel like you can't say Millar is the sole reason Vaughn left DoFP. And unless I'm mistaken Vaughn left DoFP before he came aboard with Fox.
