Matthew Vaughn Signs On for More X-Men

Deadline is reporting that X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn will return to direct the next installment in the franchise. Joining him are producer and director of the original two X-Men films Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg. No news yet on the return of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, who played Xavier and Magneto respectively, but considering the performance of the film and the critical consensus that First Class redeemed the franchise from the diminishing quality of previous installments, X-Men: The Last Stand and Wolverine, their likelihood of returning is strong.
