Matthew Vaughn will return for X-Men sequel

This was speculated and rumored but now it is official. 20th Century Fox has hired Matthew Vaughn to direct a sequel to his 2011 film, X-Men: First Class. Also returning are James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.

I'm curious as to how they will do this exactly. I am really excited that it's happening because I loved X-Men: First Class so much, but seeing that we already have five X-Men movies (X-Men, X-2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and X-Men: First Class) somewhere there will be a wire that gets crossed or cut completely. That is unless they are going to completely ignore what happened with X-Men 1-3 which would be fine with me, minus the first. Then again, X-Men: First Class already crossed some wires and confused things a bit (specifically with Alex Summers and Beast) so maybe it really doesn't matter that much. First Class seemed to follow with X-Men Origins: Wolverine more than the first three movies.
Which speaking of Wolverine... he might have to be in the First Class sequel, right? Depending on what the timeline is that might work.

Bring it on, Mr. Vaughn.
