Matthew Vaughn may already be eyeing a Kingsman trilogy, but back in 2011, he almost helmed an X-Men period-piece trilogy.

Or something of the sort. Vaughn launched the floundering X-Men franchise back into relevancy with, ironically, a flash to the past with 2011’s refreshing and bright X-Men: First Class. The superhero movie was set in the 1960s and was anticipated to be the first of several period-set X-Men movies, with a possible sequel centering around a young Wolverine in the ’70s. But the Kingsman came calling and Bryan Singer returned instead to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that won’t stop Vaughn from being nostalgic for the past.

VOTD: How ‘Wonder Woman’ Should Have Ended

How Wonder Woman Should Have Ended

With $410.6 million at the domestic box office, Wonder Woman is not only the highest grossing film of the summer, but it’s the second highest grossing film of 2017, coming in behind Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast. While we wait for Wonder Woman to hit Blu-ray and DVD next week on September 19 (it’s already available for digital download), the money is still pulling in some cash at the box office. But the film’s success doesn’t keep it safe from lampooning.

How It Should Have Ended has stepped up to give Wonder Woman the comedic conclusion treatment by imagining a variety of routes the DC Comics movie could have taken. One of them includes a fantastic reference to Moana, which shares plenty of traits with Wonder Woman, while another features a crossover cameo from a certain Marvel Comics superhero. Plus, the ending features a fun twist on the usual way the HISHE videos come to a conclusion with Batman and Superman.
