Matthew Vaughn confirms Man of Steel sequel talks and ideas for the movie…

September 18th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While Jane Goldman, writing partner of film-maker Matthew Vaughn, confirmed that Vaughn may be moving on to the Man of Steel sequel during SDCC earlier this year (here), we haven’t had any official news.

Until now.

Doing the press circuit for his new movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Vaughn confirmed that, yes, he is in talks for the DC sequel.

And he has a plan. Saying that his next project is probably the third in the Kingsman trilogy, Vaughn said he may well be moving on to Superman after that: “Weirdly if I did do Superman [ ] I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film. I just don’t feel a proper Superman—I think 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.”



Could Vaughn’s idea of a brighter Superman, a figure of hope, work in the current DC movie universe? Well, yes, of course. We already know that the DC movies are set for a brighter tone after the upcoming Justice League, so yes, this could certainly be a thing.

What say you all?

Justice League arrives November 17th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
