"Henry Cavill sent me the signed pic instead of my cheap index cards!! What a class act!!"
Steve Dillard's infectious excitement, is a great way to kick off our latest DC wrap (sorry it took a bit, Nomis has kept us busy). First off, Collider is reporting that Matthew Vaughn is Warner Bros' top pick to direct Man of Steel 2.

Before Man of Steel came out, Vaughn (who already worked with Henry in Stardust) described what his version of Supes would be like:
“I think that’s the one thing not to do with Superman, trying to do the serious The Dark Knight version. Superman is about color and fun, or it should be, for me.”
It gives you an idea of where he could go if chosen for the directing job, especially if the studio is making a shift in tone for the DCEU. Read the rest over at Collider.
We're just over eight months away from the release of Justice League, and a new glimpse at the film is likely coming in the next few weeks.
I hear The Batman himself will be making an appearance at Cinema Con this month to get theater owners hyped up for JUSTICE LEAGUE. #Unite— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) March 9, 2017
We're not sure if Ben will be the only cast member at CinemaCon, but we'll keep you updated. WB's presentation of its upcoming slate is set for Wednesday, March 29.
Director Zack Snyder is in the middle of editing the film, and he's been sharing some really cool updates on his Vero account. You remember this Aquaman scene.. the photo below is how it actually went down.
And Batsy is getting some new guns for the Batmobile..
While Zack hasn't shared any recent Superman updates from Justice League, producer Charles Roven did remind fans during a new interview that Supes was always intended to be the bedrock of the DCEU. Read more below.
