Matthew Vaughn Confirms ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel Director Talks

Man of Steel Henry Cavill Superman Justice League Matthew VaughnDuring an interview with Hey U Guys, Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn confirmed that he is in talks to direct the sequel to Man of Steel.

Before Man of Steel went into production, Matthew Vaughn had pitched a Superman film to Warner Bros. that was ultimately passed on in favor of Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer’s take on the DC Comics hero. Since then, a Man of Steel sequel has gone into active development with Vaughn reportedly in “preliminary conversations” to helm the project. Now, Vaughn himself has confirmed that he is in talks to direct the next Superman solo film:

“I am planning another Kingman, I’ve written the treatment and some of the scenes…I don’t know what I’m going to do next but I have had chats about Superman, I love Superman.”

Vaughn has been a popular choice to helm the Man of Steel sequel among fans, having previously restored enthusiasm for the then-faltering X-Men film franchise with X-Men: First Class. Would you like to see Matthew Vaughn direct the Man of Steel sequel? Share your thoughts below!

Until then, fans may see Superman return when Justice League arrives in theaters this fall.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17, 2017.

10 Essential Superman Comics You Need To Read

Previous1 of 11

Superman DC ComicsSuperman, the quintessential superhero, seems to get a lot of guff from fans. The world’s most powerful Boy Scout can be a boring character when he’s not handled properly (I’m looking at you Snyder), but when he’s being guided by someone who truly understands him and his emotional complexities, fans should expect an amazing story.

Yeah, Superman can punch his way out of simple problems, but when the audience gets to see him think or deal with personal vulnerabilities we develop a special bond with the character. To follow someone who has to be careful about sneezing in public in case they knock someone over or can’t help his friends move furniture in case it betrays his strength can be extremely interesting.

Superman represents hope and believing in yourself. While it might seem like Superman can do anything, his stories really teach audiences that if they believe in themselves their ability to do good is unlimited. Even the world’s most powerful person has emotional problems, and to see him try to overcome his pain serves as a nice reminder that all of us are strong, no matter how low we may feel in a particular moment.

    For the love of God DC, make this happen yesterday!

    This would be a terrible, terrible idea. He’s a terrible filmmaker concerned only with superficialities. All style, no substance.

    Yes! Man of Steel is still my favorite superhero flick since the Dark Knight, followed closely by Captain America the Winter soldier.
