Collider is exclusively reporting that Warner Bros. sees director Matthew Vaughn as the top choice to direct DC Films Man of Steel 2.
The report states that sources have told them that preliminary conversations have taken place between Vaughn and the studio about the prospect, though they’re not at the deal-making stage yet. Sources also tell them that if Vaughn does not for some reason direct the Man of Steel sequel, the studio still wants him to direct another film in the DC Extended Universe.
Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to directing a comic book film, having worked on 2010’s Kick-Ass, 2011’s X-Men: First Class and 2104’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. He’s also directed Kingsman secret The Golden Circle which will be released this year. As I heard this news I immediately hope that Vaughn actually takes the reins for the sequel and bring more colour and give Cavill some much deserved time to shine as Superman.
