    Matthew Vaughn Eyes Adaptations Of Mark Millar's 'Superior' & 'The Secret Service'

    Even though "X-Men: First Class" was a big hit, earning over $350 million worldwide, Matthew Vaughn has kept a low profile since the summer with barely a peep out of the director. He's likely been recharging his batteries after a whirlwind production and press tour that saw him rushing to get the superhero movie locked in time, all while talking to basically everybody on the planet about the film. While there was much talk of a '70s or '80s set 'First Class' sequel in the run up to the film's release, that chatter has pretty much died off. While Fox has "The Wolverine" on deck for their next trip in to the 'X-Men' franchise, Vaughn is beginni...

    'X-Men: First Class': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

And, if the film's strong exit scores are anything to go by, you, like most of The Playlist team, found it as entertaining ...

    Matthew Vaughn Was A Yeller, Already Thinking Sequels & 18 Things Learned About 'X-Men First Class'

    "X" marks the spot! (Sorry, had to go there.) After a long wait, at least quality-wise, the mutants are back and "X-Men: First Class" has arrived and opens in theaters nationwide today. This super hero film also lands with a rather huge sigh of relief to three distinctly different groups of people. 1) The fans: after having to endure two mediocre to abysmal installments of the 'X-Men' series ("X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men: First Class," is a nice return to form and almost on-par with Bryan Singer's much beloved &qu...
