Matthew Vaughn Won’t Direct 'X-Men: First Class 2,' Bryan Singer on Shortlist to Replace Him

Talk about bringing a franchise full circle.

Deadline is reporting that Matthew Vaughn (above left), who helmed the critic and audience favorite X-Men: First Class will not return to direct the sequel. Fox has instead shortlisted Bryan Singer (above right) to fill the void. Yes, the same Bryan Singer who kicked off the X-Men franchise for Fox back in 2000.

The site won't say why exactly Vaughn has dropped the sequel, but it is worth noting that he is extremely picky about the projects he directs. Vaughn also passed on directing the sequel to Kick-Ass. Jeff Wadlow is currently shooting the sequel with a 2013 release date targeted.

X-Men: First Class – Days of Future Past includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence all returning. Fox is hoping to make the July 18, 2014 release date they've previously mentioned, but in order to do so, they'll need to find a director pretty quickly.

This is pretty familiar territory for Fox though. A few months ago, Rupert Wyatt turned down directing the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel. The studio lined up an impressive list of potential replacements before settling on Cloverfield director Matt Reeves.

Vaughn will still be involved in the project as he wrote the treatment for the sequel and will step back into a producer role, but the question remains, do you want Bryan Singer to helm First Class 2? If not, who would be better suited for the job?
