the king's man new york comic-con 2019

Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to taking a beloved property and crafting a fresh, energetic origin story out of it. But this time, with The King’s Man, he gets to do it to his own movies. Vaughn’s Kingsman films, loosely based off of Mark Millar’s comic books, followed a fictional secret service organization that presented a hyperviolent twist on the concept of the gentleman spy. With his upcoming action spy film, The King’s Man, Vaughn gets to explore the origins of that secret service organization while paying homage to classic cinema.

Vaughn took the stage at 20th Century Fox’s New York Comic-Con panel Thursday with the stars of his upcoming film The King’s ManRalph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s what we learned at The King’s Man New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

matthew vaughn superman trilogy

At one point, X-Men: First Class and Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn was rumored to direct Man of Steel 2, following in the footsteps of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. By now we all know that didn’t happen, as Snyder decided to turn his Man of Steel 2 into Batman v Superman. As it turns out, the Superman project Vaughn with was originally something other than a Man of Steel sequel – it was the first in a new trilogy devoted to the last son of Krypton.

The Matthew Vaughn Superman trilogy would’ve strayed from the Superman source material considerably. When that fell through, Vaughn considered taking some of the ideas of his scrapped trilogy and using them in Man of Steel 2. But negotiations fell through, and it’s unlikely a direct Man of Steel sequel will fly into theaters anytime in the foreseeable future.
