Recently, Matthew Vaughn revealed that him and Warner Bros. have been in talks regarding the sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. Collider spoke to Vaughn about the film again, and got the director to talk a bit about what his potential take on a Man of Steel 2 would look like.

“Weirdly if I did do Superman—and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop (laughs). I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film. I just don’t feel a proper Superman—I think Donner did it to perfection for that time. Just doing the modern—I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material… For me Superman is color, feel-good, heroic. He’s a beacon of light in darkness. And that’s what I think Superman should be.”

If Vaughn ends up directing the film, it definitely sounds like he’ll be bringing the style that DC extended universe skeptics want. The main criticism with Zack Snyder’s take on Superman is the lack of positivity and hope; is Vaughn going to bring the hope, lightheartedness, and traditional Superman to the big screen?

Who do you think should direct Man of Steel 2? Comment below, let us know.
