As he promotes the release of his new film “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”, director Matthew Vaughn has found himself in the middle of a Superman rumor storm, as he continues to be asked about the possibility of him taking on a new Superman film.
Fans were concerned that by saying, “I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material…” that he was somehow indicating that he wanted to start all over again. However, in a new interview with Uproxx.com he clarifies that he’d be happy to continue on with the current franchise when asked if he’d direct “Man of Steel 2”.
“Well, if I do, I’ll be happy as well. It’s an honor to even have had a discussion. So, they’re probably freaking out that I’ve even mentioned it. But, yes, we’ll see. Who knows what will happen in my life, that’s for sure.”
With Superman set to return in the “Justice League” film in November, hopefully Warner Bros. executives are thinking seriously about plans for another solo Superman film sooner rather than later.
