X-Men: First Class Sequel Has A Director: Matthew Vaughn!

Which means … more Michael Fassbender! Whoo!

With the majority of the cast signed on for a prequel sequel to the famed X-Men series, all that stood in the way of the movie moving forward was to have an experienced enough director to helm it. Being as Matthew Vaughn directed the first installment, naturally he's been the studio's top choice. Today, they finally locked him down for the job, but since its taken so long to get the official word out, we imagine that means there were some serious negotiations to make this happen. Lots of $$$ thrown around, if you know what we mean.

Still, the deal is done, which we hope means production of the flick will get underway shortly.

Gosh. We just keep thinking about Jennifer Lawrence. The next three years of her life are going to be all about franchises now. Between this and Hunger Games, which still has two more installments to shoot, she is just going to be busy, busy, busy.

    Lets hope January Jones uses a condom this time so she doesn't get knocked up AGAIN like she did during the filming of the first XMEN. Did we ever find out how high in the ranks of the production the guy was that donated his seed?

    will Lucas Till star in the movie as well?

    I thought First Class was just okay, although Fassbender's performance was flawless, as usual. Completely unstable person, but a great actor he is.
