Matthew Vaughn has confirmed discussions with Warner Bros. to helm a sequel to Man of Steel, and now the Kingsman director has shared his vision for the project.
“Weirdly if I did do Superman - and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop - I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film," Vaughn told Collider. "I just don’t feel a proper Superman - I think [Richard] Donner did it to perfection for that time. Just doing the modern - I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material… For me Superman is color, feel-good, heroic. He’s a beacon of light in darkness. And that’s what I think Superman should be."
Vaughn and Mark Millar pitched a Superman movie back in 2008 that never came to fruition, but Warner Bros. might be more conducive since DC Films' co-head Geoff Johns was a pupil of Donner's.
No release date for a Man of Steel sequel has been set by the studio.
