Let me begin by saying that yes, this is just a rumor. Odds are we're going to hear hundreds of different things about the upcoming trilogy down the road, but this one caught my eye. The talented director of X-Men Origins: First Class & Kick-Ass recently decided not to direct the next X-Men film. Bryan Singer will take charge and it was hinted that Vaughn stepped down because he's going to direct Secret Service... but Collider says that might not be the whole story.
Meanwhile, MarketSaw is claiming that Steven Speilberg, Darren Arnofsky, Joss Whedon, Alfonso Cuaron, and Neil Blomkamp are also being considered. The website goes on to allege that Luke Skywalker will be a "primary focus" in the films.
Again, these are simply rumors, but it's a very intriguing one that's worth discussing -- especially since it's connected to an X-Men film. What do you think, Viners? Would you want Vaughn to direct the new trilogy or did you have someone else in mind?
