Deadline is reporting that Matthew Vaughn will be returning for a second X-Men movie.

According to the website, Fox have closed a deal to bring the English director back for the unnamed sequel to the 2011 hit . The new movie will be from a script by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand, Jumper, Sherlock Holmes) and with Bryan Singer once again producing.

With all the major cast having signed multiple picture deals before the release of X-Men: First Class we can expect to see the return of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender (above) as Professor X and Magneto, respectively, however no word on any new characters.

The film grossed $146,408,305 in the United States and $353,624,124 worldwide following its release last year.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
