Director Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-men: First Class, Kingsman) has confirmed in an interview with IGN that he’s been in talks with Warner Bros. in regards to direct a DC movie. In the interview he goes on to say he loves the DC World and that he’s been talking to DC at the moment about a few projects.
“I do love the world of DC, and I’ve been talking to them at the moment about a few things. It’s more fun getting involved with franchises when they’re on the down, because then it’s easier to make a good film. So if I got involved with a few of the superhero films out there that have been disappointing, it’s going to be… if I do OK, it’ll probably be better.”
“So when I did X-Men there was, you know, a pretty low bar — X-Men 3, no offense, was not a fantastic piece of work,” Vaughn added. “It’s much more fun saving and reinventing something — I’d be more intimidated trying to do a new Guardians [of the Galaxy], for example.”
“If I was going to do Batman, there’s no point doing the Dark Knight, because it’s been done to perfection — if I was doing Batman, I’d go ‘Christ, let’s bring out the Adam West version. I’m not interested in copying somebody else’s take on the genre. I’ve got to figure out what I’m doing next and I feel like flexing a muscle which I haven’t used before. And I’ve filmed quite a few superhero movies.”
It was rumored for sometime that Matthew Vaughn was in talks to direct the sequel to Man of Steel, which he later confirmed to be true, but nothing came from it and has yet to be announced that he’s officially will be directing it and from this recent interview it doesn’t seem like he’s yet to pick a project from the DC Extended Universe.
