I actually beleive he is the worst choice to direct the sequel after the marvelous job Matthew Vaughn did. Honestly I dont think he has the stomach for dark and gritty material. I mean sure people give him credit for Xmen 1 and 2 but is it deserved? I wont lie part 2 was pretty good but maybe that was because it followed a popular storyline around the most popular character of Wolverine.The movies were all over the place so many characters without showing how their stories were linked. He failed to build up the characters in both movies all he did was try somehow deconstruct the Wolverine mystery. Rogue's story while focal in Xmen was not at all developed in X2
To sweep in like a vulture after Xmen First class had such phenomenal success is really stupid especially after the Superman Returns debacle ,just look at a movie like Jack the Giant slayer...I am wondering if this is the same guy who made Usual Suspects. In my eyes he is not the man for the job really. People are of two minds about Zach Snyder , but i think he would actually make a much better DoFP if the studio waited a while.He has delivered via MoS , most critics are predicatbly those who still think it's 1950's where Superman cannot stomach a death and superheroes fight but somehow no one gets hurt.Honestly a true comic fan knows that to bring realism to characters, one does not have to shy away from the dark side of comics.So to me Matthew Vaughn would be the first choice , and Zach Snyder 2nd .Singer should be nowhere near DoFP
What do you all think?
