Despite Man of Steel being a trainwreck of a movie, Warner Bros. is forging ahead with a sequel, though without Zack Snyder attached. Director Matthew Vaughn is currently being offered the world to fill the Metropolis skyline-shaped hole Snyder left. Vaughn previously directed Kick-AssX-Men: First ClassKingsman: The Secret Service, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, meaning if he takes the job, this will be his first DCEU film after playing in the Marvel universe.

Back in 2010, reports surfaced that Vaughn and Kick-Ass comic writer Mark Millar had pitched their take on a Superman movie to Warner Bros. only for the studio to go with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer's take. Vaughn's stance at the time regarding Superman was highly different from the one Warner's went with.

"I think that's the one thing not to do with Superman, trying to do the serious The Dark Knight version. Superman is about color and fun, or it should be, for me."

Vaughn's take on Man of Steel 2 could be a significant change in tone from the first film and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, if the studio gives him room to play.
