It’s been a rumor for a while now that Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn would be directing the Man of Steel sequel, which was announced months ago as being in development. Nothing concrete was ever announced, but now we may have more information that is more concrete.
Now Screenwriter Jane Goldsman revealed in an interview that Matthew Vaughn is looking at the Man of Steel sequel. Though, she doesn’t say he is definitely directing the film, she does mention he is looking at the character from a different point of view and she is unsure if she will be writing that film.
“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.”
Keep in mind this is not a definitive confirmation, even she says she isn’t sure what’s happening there, but that she knows enough to know he is looking at it from a director’s point of view does confirm he has at least met with Warner Bros.
