^ Your statement is amusing since as has been pointed out several times now, Singer had a very deep involvement with "X-Men: First Class" whether you want to accept this or not, it is a fact. Again without his pitch we would not have had the film we got. Prior to Bryan's pitch which got the project rolling again, Fox was planning on doing an adaptation of Jeff Parker's excellent First Class comic (which a lot of fans thought we were actually getting at first for the longest time. I'm not sure why it is so hard to accept that Singer had a great deal to do with First Class. Matthew Vaughn essentially executed Singer's vision while bringing Vaughn's own unique story telling abilities as director and co-writer. They were working very much in conjunction with each other.
