Matthew Vaughn Is Interested In Saving The DC Films Universe And Has Talked To WB About A Number Of Projects

Kingsman: The Golden Cirlce director Matthew Vaughn has talked to Warner Bros. about a number of DC Comics adaptation and now has his eye on saving the DC Films Universe as he did the X-Men back in 2011.

Warner Bros. hasn't found a great deal of success with the DC Films Universe with only Wonder Woman a true critical and commercial hit. Well, Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn - who we know has discussed the Man of Steel sequel with the studio - is looking to save this comic book world and confirms that he's spoken to Warner Bros. about a number of DC projects.

"I do love the world of DC, and I’ve been talking to them at the moment about a few things," he revealed in a chat with IGN. "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 added. "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." The filmmaker clearly has big ideas for the DC Films Universe and believes he's capable of, well, saving it!
 
"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,'" Vaughn added, teasing a take on Batman which would probably be pretty divisive. "I’m not interested in copying somebody else’s take on the genre. I’ve got to figure out what I’m doing next and I feel like flexing a muscle which I haven’t used before. And I’ve filmed quite a few superhero movies."

So, despite confirming that he's talked about a number of DC movies, Vaughn seems somewhat reluctant to jump back into the world of superhero movies but he could be exactly what this troubled world needs. What do you guys think? Let us know that in the comments section down below.
