Bailing last fall on directing "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and still yet to lock down his next directorial, Matthew Vaughn isn't leaving the Fox lot or the comic book genre behind completely. Besides 'Future Past' and "The Wolverine," the studio and their newly minted nerd consultant Mark Millar still have a lot to tackle, including one major property in "Fantastic Four." And now it's getting a little bit of help.

Bailing last fall on directing "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and still yet to lock down his next directorial, Matthew Vaughn isn't leaving the Fox lot or the comic book genre behind completely. Besides 'Future Past' and "The Wolverine," the studio and their newly minted nerd consultant Mark Millar still have a lot to tackle, including one major property in "The Fantastic Four." And now it's getting a little bit of help.

Matthew Vaughn has boarded the movie as a producer, with Deadline reporting this exclusive news in their shortest story of 2013. And well, we can't really blame them because, that's the entirety of the news. And while one would like to be a fly on the wall between pals Vaughn and Millar (the director is eyeing adaptations of the comic creator's "Superior" and "The Secret Service") and director Josh Trank, we only wonder at what they may be planning. Will Fox be looking to emulate the cross-pollination that Marvel has perfected to date? Who knows, but Trank has an experienced hand to turn to for advice as he makes the leap from "Chronicle" to something far more expensive, with sky high expectations.

So talk amongst yourselves, share your theories below and wait patiently for March 6, 2015.
