Wow, that's odd. I loved First Class and hoped Vaughn would stay on board for the second one. Can't really complain though if Bryan Singer comes back to helm.

I wonder why people keep working for Fox. They always complain about conditions, budget cuts, and then overall cuts to the film that come from the studio.....yet they go back.

I guess money just speaks. Singer is a good director so I'd be interested in it if he takes over.
