Last week, Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn revealed that he has had talks with Warner Bros. about doing the next Superman movie. Collider followed up with him, and asked what his take would be if he were to take the job.
“Weirdly if I did do Superman—and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop (laughs),” Vaughn admitted. “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.”
Patty Jenkins has said many times that Richard Donner’s Superman was inspiration for her Wonder Woman movie. Would you like to see Vaughn’s modern version of that classic Superman in Man of Steel 2? Let me know in the comments below.
