Deadline has reported that Fox has just closed a deal that will bring back Matthew Vaughn to direct a sequel to his highly successful X-Men: First Class.

The deal was reported in a larger piece on 20th Century Fox:

Fox has just closed a deal with Matthew Vaughn to come back and direct the sequel to X-Men: First Class, with Simon Kinberg writing the script and Bryan Singer back as producer.

While this news will come as little shock, it is nice to see Vaughn back on board as most agree X-Men: First Class was a great success and much of that is due to Vaughn as well as stars Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy. We’ll be sure to report on all news related to this project as it’s announced. Are you excited to see Vaughn back at the helm?

    I’m very glad to see Matthew Vaughn back at the helm of a comic book movie.  He did a good job with Kick-Ass and a great job with X-Men: First Class.  So I will be eager to see what happens next.

    YES!!!!!! Such good news. I think the sequel can and should be much better than the first since it doesn’t have to set up much. Also they NEED to keep it focused on the Charles/Erik dynamic and make it even more complicated. For example, in spite of the schism at the end of the first one it should be still like they are both still willing to work together as friends and allies. Also I want them to just ignore the messy and silly canon of the older movies entirely at this point and not be afraid to bring in characters like Cyclops (as Havoc’s, brother) and Jean Grey.
