Taking a break from the world of Star Wars, a bit of comic book news from the DC side of things comes out way. Not long ago it was rumored that director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) was being courted by DC to direct a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel.
In speaking with El Fanboy Podcast (via ComingSoon), Mark Millar, who has collaborated on a number of projects with Vaughn, confirmed that there were at the very least a conversation about Vaughn helming Man of Steel 2
“He and I are massive Superman fans. I mean, we worship Richard Donner. We love the Christopher Reeve movies. He actually phoned me up a few months ago, and he said, ‘Hey, listen, DC, they’re very interested in me doing Man of Steel 2. Do you want to come in and do this?’ And I was like, ‘I’m exclusive to Netflix for years. We can’t even have that conversation.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, man. What’s the chances of this?’ And then he kind of drifted away. And he’s attached himself to a couple of things and all that. Y’know so, it’s one of those things that might, I mean – if somebody phones Matthew up and offers him enough money it could all change tomorrow.”
At this point in the DCEU, I don’t think many fans would object to bringing Mathew Vaughn in on Man of Steel 2, I for one would certainly welcome him on board. He does seem to already have made his choice, signing up for another Kingsman sequel, as well as another film, I am Pilgrim, these should keep him busy for the next couple of years.
Though, I do think Vaughn would do well stepping into the DC world, as he is no stranger to the superhero genre, having directed X-Men: First Class.
