Filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has confirmed rumours suggesting that he is in talks to direct Man of Steel 2.
In an interview during the promotion of Kingsmen: The Golden Circle, the director revealed his plan for another Kingsmen film and also let it slip that he has had “chat” about the Kryptonian superhero, reported Ace Showbiz.
“I am planning another Kingsmen, I’ve written the treatment and some of the scenes…I don’t know what I’m going to do next but I have had chats about Superman, I love Superman,” Vaughn said.
“If somebody asks me to do Indiana Jones, most of the superheros or Star Wars the fanboy in me can’t help but be excited.”
Vaughn was first linked to the Man of Steel sequel in March.
The DC movie is expected to mark the director’s return to superhero films. He successfully directed X-Men: First Class in 2011 and helmed another comic book adaptation Kick-Ass in 2010.
It’s unclear when WB plans to release the second Superman movie, but Henry Cavill’s character will first return in Justice League, which will release on November 17.
He will be joined by Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.
Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle is coming out on September 22.
