News broke this morning that Matthew Vaughn would direct "X-Men: First Class," the upcoming film that takes Professor X and his mutant students back to their early days. But is the "Kick-Ass" director the right filmmaker for the job?
No stranger to high-action projects and colorful characters, Vaughn made a name for himself with films like "Layer Cake," which helped Daniel Craig land the role of James Bond; "Stardust," a fantastic adventure based on a novel by Neil Gaiman; and "Kick-Ass," a live-action adaptation of Mark Millar's ultraviolent comic book series. With "First Class," Vaughn will tackle some of Marvel's most famous superheroes in an ensemble project steeped in comic book history.
