Man of Steel was the first movie to kick off the DC Expanded Universe that would eventually include a new version of Batman, as well as the first big-screen iterations of Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, all coming together to form the Justice League. The assembly of the DC Comics superhero team and the individual movies for each of the superheroes on the team has kept Warner Bros. Pictures kind of busy, but now they may be ready to bring their attention back to The Big Blue Boy Scout.
A new report indicates that Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn is the studio’s top choice to direct Man of Steel 2 and they’ve already had “preliminary conversations” about working together on the sequel. Find out more below. Read More »
The cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is already something special with Elton John making a rare turn as an actor. But the roster for the sequel just got a little sweeter with the addition of The Big Lebowski and True Grit star Jeff Bridges, and he even got his own teaser poster that is the perfect way to announce the addition of The Dude to the cast. In fact, the poster just might tease the role of Jeff Bridges in Kingsman 2. Read More »

There are new signs of life for Mark Millar‘s Supercrooks and American Jesus. Over five years ago, Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo became attached to Supercrooks, and he later went on to direct a teaser trailer for the comic book, but we’ve heard little about the film adaptation since then. And even longer ago, Matthew Vaughn was attached to produce American Jesus, as a followup to his successful collaboration with Millar on Kick-Ass. A summer 2009 start date was speculated, but never came to fruition.
Today, there is finally some news for both projects. Waypoint Entertainment has purchased the rights to the two comic book titles. Vigalondo and Vaughn’s names aren’t mentioned in the official press release, so perhaps they’re no longer involved in either project.
Learn more about the potential Mark Millar adaptations below.

Flash Gordon has been trying for years to make his way back to the big screen, without much success. He hasn’t actually been seen in theaters since 1980, unless you count Sam Jones‘ appearances in Ted and Ted 2.
But maybe he’ll have better luck this time. The Flash Gordon movie got a big boost last year when Matthew Vaughn signed on to direct, and now it’s continuing to move forward with a new screenwriter: Oldboy and I Am Legend scribe Mark Protosevich. Read More »

Taron Egerton had a big 2015, bursting onto the scene with Kingsman: The Secret Service and following up with appearances in Testament of Youth and Legend. Next year he’ll hope to continue his winning streak by going on the ultimate losing streak, playing British ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards in a biopic. Edwards entered the 1988 Olympics as the ultimate underdog, and seemed to get more popular the more he lost.
Eddie the Eagle reunites Egerton with his Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn, although he’s only producing this time; Dexter Fletcher directs. Hugh Jackman plays Eddie’s coach. Watch the Eddie the Eagle international trailer after the jump. Read More »
