After Zack Snyder called the shots on ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and the upcoming ‘Justice League,’ it looks like there’s a new director in the frame for Superman’s next solo movie. According to Collider, Warner Bros and DC are pressing on with a second ‘Man of Steel’ movie starring Henry Cavill, and they want British director Matthew Vaughn to take the helm.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ had a tortured journey from the mind of series creator George Miller to the big screen and was beset with problems right from the start. After two aborted productions in the early ‘00s, Mel Gibson’s much-publicised meltdown, a shoot in the Namibian desert with new leading man Tom Hardy plagued with rumours of on-set problems and reshoots, followed by years of post-production, the fourth ‘Mad Max’ arrived early this summer to widespread critical and commercial acclaim.

Despite recent reports that George Miller had ruled himself out of making ‘Man of Steel 2′, the Australian film-maker has told Yahoo Movies UK that it’s a film he’s still keen to be involved with. “I was going to do a Justice League until an Australian government rebate didn’t go through. The director is on the promotional trail for the DVD and Blu-ray release of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ (available now) and following the uproarious success of his long-awaited fourquel, everyone wants to know what the 70-year-old Australian (pictured below) is up to next.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ director George Miller has really impressed with his vision of a post-apocalyptic future… as Zack Snyder says he’d love to see him make a DC superhero film. During an interview with News.Com.Au, the ‘Batman V Superman’ director addressed those rumours that George Miller may direct ‘Man of Steel 2’. “George doing one of the DC movies?” asked Snyder.
Although George Miller was recently rumoured to direct ‘Man of Steel 2’, it looks as though the Superman sequel may have already been canned. During last week’s episode of Popcorn Talk, Jon Schnepp dropped a rather huge bombshell – that George Miller would be directing ‘Man of Steel 2’.
