With J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars Episode VII, does this leave Matthew Vaughn available?
Though Vaughn is reportedly set to take on Mark Millar's Secret Service, it was said that he pitched an idea to Disney with Chloe Moretz as the lead.
So what we can take from that is, Vaughn at least wanted to work on Star Wars which has a 2015 release date.
And what else has a 2015 release date and seems desperately in need of a director and sounds like in part a cosmic space epic?
Will Beall has written the script with it said that Darkseid is the villain and plans on replacing the Earth with his own planet, Apokolips. Rumors seem to indicate that the movie will focus on five members, Batman, Superman (played by Man of Steel Henry Cavill), Green Lantern, The Flash and Wonder Woman, with possible cameos by Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and/or Hawkman.
Matthew Vaughn was initially attached to X-Men: First Class eventually bowing out with his friend Mark Millar stating it was for Secret Service. Now that we know it may have been for Star Wars, could it now be for the Justice League Movie?
Hitting up Twitter reveals we are not the only ones to think this as the owner of the Latino Review, a source for some Justice League movie rumors, tweets, "FANBOYS! CLUE! STAR WARS LOSS IS JUSTICE LEAGUE'S GAIN!"
With a reporter, Marc Graser, from Variety offering the same, "So who's up for Matthew Vaughn directing JUSTICE LEAGUE?"
