News this morning via about Matthew Vaughn’s potential involvement with DC Films. Speaking on the IGN UK Podcast Vaughn further confirmed that he has had talks with DC Films/Warner Bros. about “a few things” though would not be drawn on any particular project.

“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 said. “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.”

He had a small warning for Batman fans that if he were to helm a solo movie it might not look like a Chris Nolan film…

“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.”

In a serrate interview with the El Fanboy Podcast Vaughn’s collaborator Mark Millar also discussed DC Films.

“He [Vaughn] and I are massive Superman fans. I mean, we worship Richard Donner. We love the Christopher Reeve movies, He actually phoned me up a few months ago, and he said, “Hey, listen, DC, they’re very interested in me doing Man of Steel 2. Do you want to come in and do this?’ And I was like, ‘I’m exclusive to Netflix for years. We can’t even have that conversation.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, man. What’s the chances of this?’ And then he kind of drifted away. And he’s attached himself to a couple of things and all that. Y’know so, it’s one of those things that might, I mean — if somebody phones Matthew up and offers him enough money it could all change tomorrow.”

Could Matthew Vaughn by the Kevin Feige that DC Films so desperately needs?
