The highly anticipated sequel to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel seems to finally be gaining some steam, as Warner Bros. appears to be in search of a director, and it looks like Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) is potentially the frontrunner to helm the film
According to Collider, Vaughn is the "top choice" over at Warner Bros. for the Man of Steel sequel, and they've been in "preliminary talks" with the Kingsman director to take on the film. There aren’t' any deals set in place yet, but according to Collider's source, should Vaughn not want to direct the sequel, they are still eager to work with him on another superhero project.
Vaughn is no stranger to the comic book movie genre - however, most of his projects have been with 20th Century Fox since X-Men: First Class. He's currently working on finishing up the Kingsman sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but if the director is looking for a change, taking on a the world's most iconic superhero for Warner Bros. would definitely be step in the right direction for the DC Films Universe.
