Default Who should direct?

The deal hasn't been signed off to Singer yet as he had mentioned but the idea was to have him direct it. Despite this if the off chance appears that he is not available for the job who else would you like to see take up the mantle on this project.

Out of the directors that we have had I would say my top choice would be Bryan singer but I would take James Mangold if he was available. Vaughn was good too but I felt like James brought more of an emotional depth, fresh approach and richer story with his version with plenty of nice comic book superhero elements.

The Wolverine felt like a comic book movie but it also felt like a character driven drama too and had a good blend of action, development and effects that I would like to see cross over to the ensemble films.

I would like to see the film embrace more of the team work side of things and have epic battles and destruction like the film is said to have also the 80s is a great setting aesthetically and in the right hands could provide a great comic book tone in the right hands.

I would want Singer to direct but that's only if A) DOFP is directed better than FC and B) his name is cleared. If Singer is out, I'd want Vaughn back. Or someone new but passionate about the source material.

Vaughn's a bit quirky and inconsistent. He brought some great energy to First Class, but also some weird stuff like the look of Beast and Mystique.

Yeah. New blood is welcome, but not some no-name last minute replacement type. I mean someone with a vision!

Matthew Vaughn is too flakey for me. He's left two X-Men projects now so I don't know I don't want him on board and then decides to leave again. I want Bryan at least to do apocalypse. Yes still with everything. Because he has a vision for it and it's all planned out.

Anyway, if Singer can clear his name and Fox still wants him, then I prefer that he direct Apocalypse.

Bryan Singer is the easiest choice, DOFP looks very promising, the VFX & fighting scenes are bound to be epic but given the recent allegations, I hope Fox won't sack him for that he is clearly the BEST director of this franchise.

Matthew Vaughn might replace him though, if Fox is smart, move X-Men: Apocalypse on 2017 so the issue will fade away

First off Bryan Singer may already have signed deal to direct APocalypse.

Second Singer Issues are a lawsuit and too many are willing to condeem him
already

Fox firing Singer from Apocalypse could mean more lawsuits if he's signed a
deal to do Apocalypse. remember CBS had to pay Charlie sheen for 2 and a half men after firing him while he was under contract

That puts entire film In question since he devolped story

Some are using this to push their singer is overrated director Matthew Vaughn Is better director line. Of course some forget singer devolped stpry for FC and was hands on producer and may have even ghost directed a few scenes In film.Back In 2011 Vaughn keep going on and on about how he wanted to make 60's bond film. He spoke less about wanting to make a X-Men movie.

If fox acts as hasty as some here Apocalypse is thrown into question.

I feel the same way. Loved what he did. I like Singer, but prefer Vaughn.

Unless Fox announces he's off the project, it will be Singer.

Singer's not going to be on it anymore I don't think.

Regardless of whether he's guilty or not.

Apocalypse could very well be scrapped and a different FC3 devolped.

No it won't. They aren't going to scrap an entire script because the director behind it is booted off.

They'll continue working on it under a new director if it comes to that. Singer doesn't own the property and the writers are paid by Fox, not him.

From an artisitc standpoint, I'd like to answer this after I see Days of Future Past.

From a standpoint of factoring in the legalities and the documentary, then artistic merit might not matter. If he has to leave the project or is forced to, I'd say Vaughn is my first pick, but if he says no, give Mangold a shot. I like him a lot. I see tons of potential in him down the line.

I will say I think Vaughn is a better director than Singer based of the examples of their work I have seen. He has a better sense of story, pacing, and is MUCH more imaginitive in the camera work. I think he'd make a better movie than Singer. But, that said, I haven't seen DoFP yet. First Class I think is vastly superior to Singer's 2 existing X-Men films, but at the same time, he did develop the story for Apocalypse. I admit that I wished Vaughn did DoFP, and was hoping maybe he'd somehow land Apocalypse. But, not like this.
