Remember how Matthew Vaughn dropped out of the latest X-Men sequel, forcing Bryan Singer back into the mutant business?

Though it's currently being firmly categorized as an "unconfirmed rumor," Vaughn is said to be in talks with Lucasfilm to helm the next chapter of the saga, kicking off further rumors that perhaps he and frequent screenwriting partner Jane Goldman were some of the writers that already met about the project. Anyway, it's all just talk right now, so no point in worrying about it. But if Vaughn does end up getting the deal... do you think he'll bring back the beam swords? I love those!
