“This is my love letter to superhero movies,” Vaughn told MTV News of “Kick-Ass,” which hits theaters Friday. “And I tried to put all the ideas that ‘X-Men’ gave me into it and then working on ‘Thor’ [as well].”
I forgot that Matthew Vaughn was lined up to direct both X-Men: Last Stand and Thor. Man, Vaughn would’ve made a great X-Men flick. I’m a bit teary-eyed just thinking about that. Well, that, and Brett Ratner’s awful movie that practically ruined the X-Men franchise.
