Director Matthew Vaughn takes part in SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Special at the SiriusXM Studios on Feb. 9, 2015 in New York City.

Warner Brothers is reported to ask Matthew Vaughn to direct "Man of Steel 2." The "Kingsman" director is considered to be one of the most suitable candidate to direct the sequel of Superman story.

Vaughn is the director who is known for his different approach and point of view in making his movie. According to Collider, he has been talking to Warner Brothers to talk about directing "Man of Steel 2."

The 46-year-old director is able to resurrect the popularity of "X-Men" franchise after Marvel experienced two flops in "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" as reported by Independent. When he wrote and directed the "X-Men: First Class" and also wrote the sequel "X-Men: Days of Future Past," the Marvel's popular mutant franchise has returned on track.

DC Comics and Warner Brothers expect him to do the same for the DC Extended Universe. Vaughn once tried to pitch a story of the new Superman to the Warner Brothers in 2010, collaborating with writer Mark Millar. Nevertheless, Warner Brothers preferred to use Zac Snyder and David Goyer story for "Man of Steel," which scored $688 million in box-office around the world.

Now, Warner Brothers offered Vaughn to write and direct "Man of Steel 2," or any other movies in the DC Extended Universe. The studio and Vaughn are reported to already have a conversation regarding the project. However, there is no commitment regarding him to take on the project.

Nevertheless, he already had an idea for "Man of Steel 2," as he wanted Superman to have a different tone than Batman or the Dark Knight version. According to him, Superman should not be directed in a serious way, it is because Superman is a fun and colorful superhero. He said, "Superman is about color and fun, or it should be,"
