September 18, 2017: Matthew Vaughn Talks About His Take on Superman

A few days ago "Kick-Ass" director Matthew Vaughn told HeyUGuys.com that he has indeed had talks with Warner Bros. about taking on a new Superman film. The internet went wild for the news, and Collider.com asked him all about it when chatting with him during an interview for his latest film "Kingsman: The Golden Circle".

"Weirdly if I did do Superman - and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop (laughs) - 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."

Back in 2010 Vaughn and comic writer Mark Millar pitched their idea for a Superman film to Warner Bros., but the studio decided to go with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer's pitch for "Man of Steel" instead.
