Man of Steel 2: Kingsman Director is Reportedly WB’s Top Choice to Direct

Talks are still in the early stages.

Warner Bros. is reportedly eyeing Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn[2] to helm Man of Steel 2. According to an unconfirmed report from Collider[3], Vaughn has been in talks to direct the Superman sequel, though discussions are said to still be very much in the early stages. Even if a deal can’t be struck for Vaughn to direct Man of Steel 2, Warner Bros. is still interested in the filmmaker directing another movie in the DCEU, according to the report.

New Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich is said to be particularly interested in having Vaughn as the latest director to join the DECU. Emmerich was reportedly one of the main reasons why Matt Reeves recently signed on to direct The Batman[4]. Last year reports surfaced[5] that Warner Bros. had placed a sequel to Man of Steel “into active development,” making it “top priority for the studio” to get the character of Superman right for audiences.

Following this year’s Wonder Woman[6], which opens on June 2, and Justice League[7], which hits theaters on November 17, the next two DCEU films are Aquaman[8], which is targeting October 5, 2018, and Shazam[9], which is slated for April 5, 2019.
