According to, during an interview with BroBible’s Post Credit Podcast, Matthew Vaughn, when asked what he thinks about Superman: Red Son, the acclaimed


comic book series written by his pal Mark Milla and Vaughn praised the story as such.

“I thought Red Son was one of the cleverest comics I’d ever read, and in the current world we’re living in, it’s certainly become a lot more relevant because ignorance causes more issues, and I think the more we learn about Russia and the Russian history…”

he stated before having the epiphany of casting Henry Cavill in the role.

His exact words were

“Wow, could you imagine remaking Red Son with Henry Cavill? That would be an interesting movie”.

Although nothing is confirmed yet, only time will tell if we will once again get to see Cavill’s version of Superman, either through an Elseworlds movie or even a multiverse crossover with David Corenswet’s iteration in the DC Universe.
