The movie X-Men First Class will be directed by Matthew Vaughn (who once brought us Kick-Ass) and not by Bryan Singer as previously announced. But Singer is still involved as producer. A few words from Bryan Singer about Matthew Vaughn:
“X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.”
Twentieth Century Fox will release the movie X-Men First Class on June 3, 2011.
