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 beginning to consider what he'll do next and he's looking to "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar once again, with two potential projects lining up as possibilities.

If the films based on the comic books of Mark Millar (or indeed, the comic books themselves) came anywhere near to matching the creator's ability to hype them up, his success rate would be close to Stanley Kubrick's. Instead, the William Castle of the comic book world has been behind "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass," and has spent 2010 claiming that he was writing the next "X-Men" movie for Fox (possibly confusing 'himself' with 'Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman'), that a sequel to "Kick-Ass" had been green-lit, and that Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp were going to star in the Tony Scott-helmed adaptation of "Nemesis."
