The DC Extended Universe is finally looking like getting its act together and coming up with some movies that will finally rival what we have been getting from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for many years now. While there are a lot of new DC movies lined up for the next few years, there is one movie in particular which we expect to definitely happen, although it has yet to be officially confirmed.
Actor Henry Cavill plays the role of Clark Kent aka Superman in the DC Extended Universe and his first outing in the movie Man of Steel got rather mixed reviews from the fans, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also got a lot of criticism. With that said though, it is expected that we will get a Man of Steel 2 movie and, if what Jane Goldman has been saying is true, Matthew Vaughn wants to direct the film, while she could also be up for penning the script.
Goldman shared, "I know Matthew’s [Vaughn] a big Superman fan. Would I like to… I don’t know. I mean I’m not sure. I think Matthew’s looking at it from a directing point of view. I have no idea what’s happening there. I’m not sure. There might already be a script for it. I think so."
She added, "I’m not certain actually but it’s complicated with a character with that kind of history. Obviously X-Men have an equally complicated [history]… but Superman feels a lot more recent. He’s been brought to life in a new iteration – he means a lot to a lot of people and maybe there are other people with more a connection with Superman… but who knows."
It would certainly be interesting to see how the hardcore comic book fans would feel about this.
