David Goyer is certainly in the news alot lately. First parting ways with the Flash, then all the gossip about the non-superhero movie SuperMax, and finally today Variety is reporting Goyer will direct “Magneto”, a spin-off movie from 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios.
The first film will be an origin story with Magneto hunting down Nazi war criminals who tortured him, and coming to grips with his mutant abilities. Since it is a prequel to the X-films, Ian McKellen’s involvement is expected to be limited.
Goyer is developing the script that was written by Sheldon Turner.
