Default David Goyer hired to write Man of Steel

Quote:
Today is huge comic book movie news Wednesday. With the Captain America finalists breaking over at Marvel, we got something from the world of DC.

Our notorious trusted source 'Pinche Taco'came up big for us...

I know a lot of you folks are going to ask "Isn't Goyer writing the third Batman film?" Goyer is only helping in the story, he ain't writing it. Just like The Dark Knight, where he only helped with the story.

Without any further adieu..

Hola Chicos, Pinche Taco here with the latest blatherings de nada de los Ninos de Hollywood!

So you will believe un hombre can fly! Te Juro. The talented David Stephen Goyer, the man who made sure Nolan stuck to the legend of El Dark Knight, has been hired to write the next chapter. Here is what El Taco can tell all you ninos....

  1. Thomas Tull, the head of Legendary, got tired of all the discussion and decided chingate, let's do it. So he went to Goyer and Goyer had an idea that actually takes the movies back to the John Byrne incarnation. Modern. Believable. FUN! So Tull got Goyer hired.
  2. The film will not be called Superman and will be called THE MAN OF STEEL.
  3. Brandon Routh will not star in the film.
  4. Nic Cage will NOT star in the fllm (lol)
  5. Bryan Singer is not expected to direct.
Conoces como Mark Millar walks around acting like he was going to write it? El Taco discovered that this was always ********. Paul Levitz hated the guy and he was never even discussed to write it. He made all that "almost" stuff up.

I can tell you that Goyer's story involves Luthor and Brainiac. It is NOT an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry. I know the Daily Planet is struggling due to the internet. And I know it sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.

El Taco is muy excited about this. This could be the Superman movie we deserve!


Yo soy El Taco y yo digo adios!

Stay tuned as the story develops.

Wow. Interesting. This further proves Nolan is involved. I'm fine with Goyer writing the story but would like his draft get passed along to get polished.

No Routh
No Singer
No origin movie
And Brainiac and Luthor! Awesome!

WHOA. This could be big. Certainly leads credence to Nolan's involvement. If they can get a great director to work with Goyer's material, we're in for a very interesting franchise.

Oh, and uh....FULL REBOOT. Awesome.

Holy crap! What a crazy news day!

This story idea sure sounds good, but that's always been Goyer's strong point. It's when writing the dialogue that things can get messy. But if it's got Luthor and Braniac, and takes a cue from the Byrne Man of Steel stuff...I'm SOLD!

Although I'm a bit upset that Routh won't be used (as per the article). With this not being an origin story, it would seem like a good opportunity to use him.

I wonder if C-Note himself will direct it?

I do like the idea of the Planet struggling because of the internet.

Makes a lot of sense, he dropped off Flash Forward, everybody thought it was to write Batman 3. Obviously it was for Superman, and I guess we now know that Nolan is definitely involved...so all that skepticism can fly away.

Well, I love Byrne's run on Superman, so this news may be a good thing.

It's probably for both. He might not be the main person writing Batman 3 but he definitely has a hand in it just like with TDK.

The only thing I am disappointed about is no Routh but I'll live I was upset when Welling wasn't cast and I will be sad to see Routh go. Just as long as they cast someone who can make me believe he is Superman like Welling and Routh did after Reeve then I am happy.

This sounds good. I liked his draft of BB more than the final film.

Just look at the Captain America testing news we got today, that is where the next Superman will be.

If there is one thing Goyer is good at writing it's action, I just hope that Nolan may be able to polish on dialogue.
I do think Goyer is solid with ideas for plots and stories.

Very cool. I can see a lot of people fussing about this, and claim that Goyer had a string of terrible films. Blade: Trinity and The Unborn are two films out several films on his resume.

Yea, according to Nikki Finke, Goyer and Jonah Nolan were working on Batman 3. At this point, it's probably in Jonah's hands.

I see. So Latino Review is a bit behind then, and Goyers script is already written. Which jives with the earlier reports.

An already established Superman, that's about right.

The Good news is that it wont be an origin story.

The somewhat disappointing news is that Routh won't be back.

The Bad news is that its probably primarily based on Byrne Superman.
