Another day, another Justice League rumor. We now know J.J. Abrams is allegedly directing Star Wars: Episode VII, and this could apparently make Matthew Vaughn more interested in helming Warner Bros. big team up movie.
According to Cosmic Book News, the X-Men: First Class director is said to have previously turned down a Justice League offer because he was allegedly in the running for Star Wars -- he even wanted Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) for the lead. Now that this apparently isn't an option, this opens the doors once again to the DC film.
The website claims their DC Entertainment source says Rian Johnson (Looper), Sam Mendes (Skyfall), and Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) are also in the running. Allegedly, Peter Jackson was on the list as well, but The Hobbit being turned into a trilogy soaked up his time. The website also alleges that Christopher Nolan will not produce the film. Furtheremore, they say the film will have a budget of roughly $250 million.
Once again, these are just rumors and only time will tell who's actually directing the film. But in the meantime, some fun speculation never hurt anyone, right? So, do you think Vaughn's a good choice or would you prefer to see one of the other 3 names direct?
