The studio tried to collaborate with Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman, X-Men: First Class), who proposed a new Superman trilogy, “inspirational, hopeful,” as noted by the polygon site. But Vaughn confessed in a recent interview that the idea he had presented to the studio in 2008 – then with Mark Millar (the author of several screened comics, including Kick-Ass) – was not approved and that, therefore, will not be part of Man’s Steel 2 production team (which is not in the books yet).
Vaughn revealed that “the first movie in the proposed trilogy was thought to take place almost entirely on Krypton and to focus on Jor-El and the imminent explosion of the planet. Even if Krypton’s disappearance was a certainty, placing the action before the disaster would have allowed Superman to grow up on his home planet and gradually become familiar with the Earth; to mature before he has to decide which of the planets he must be loyal to, “he said.
The film also confirmed that Henry Cavill will no longer be part of the future plans for Warner Bros. Superman movies. and DC Films. Even though the reboot talks now failed, he remarked he did not rule out a possible future comeback into the DC Cinematic Universe. “It would be very difficult to say no,” he confessed, referring to the opportunity to sit at the helm of a new Superman movie.
