Last summer, when it was announced Warner Bros. was moving ahead with Batman vs. Superman, everyone (and you know who they are) said production would move ahead based on the screenplay by David Goyer. Those who have listened to the Major Spoilers Podcast over the last couple of weeks know we’re a little hesitant on Goyer’s hit and miss successes, and it looks like Warner Bros. is concerned too, as a new writer has been brought on board.
Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer, with some help from Christopher Nolan, team up to bring their vision of a modern Superman tale, and what may possibly be the start of a DC cinematic universe. The trio all have experience in making great movies starring cape donning protagonists, so this outing should be no different. Find out if they repeat success with the big, blue boy scout after the jump! (Spoilers below).
A couple of weeks ago we learned that the script for the upcoming Justice League movie had been totally trashed and needed to be rewritten from the ground up. With early press on the Man of Steel looking super positive, the latest rumor out of H’wood totally changes what Warner Bros. could be bringing to the table in 2015.
Showtime has announced it has hired David S. Goyer to adapt DC Comics Vertigo imprint, 100 Bullets series for the cable network. 100 Bullets is an atypical comic as it features no superheroes, magic, supernatural elements or a sci-fi twist. It is a dark, noir-style story about the attempt by one man, the mysterious Agent Graves, to destroy a secret group of families that control most of the world’s wealth and power, and it also poses a classic moral question, “If you could get away with murdering the person who ruined your life, would you do it?” I’ve only just
Latino Review is running a story that says Batman Begins scribe David Goyer has been signed to write the next Superman movie installment.Â This comes after the news that Christopher Nolan was involved in righting the Superman franchise.Â According to the article, Goyer will base the story on John Bryne’s telling of the Superman tale, and will be called The Man of Steel. I can tell you that Goyer’s story involves Luthor and Brainiac.Â It is NOT an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry.Â I know the Daily Planet is struggling due to the
News arrived last week that David Goyer exited FlashForward, the ABC series that has had some ups and downs these last couple of months.Â Upon his exit, Goyer hinted at bigger things to come for the writer in the form of Batman 3 that he is writing with Christopher Nolan’s brother, Jonah. This is the first word that we have that Batman 3 is now ramping up, which means we’ll start seeing even more rumors over which villains will appear, and what celebrity will be cast.Â Wanna start the speculation early? via Deadline Hollywood
Some of you may remember the brouhaha surrounding David Goyer’s Supermax film project that was supposed to feature Oliver Queen locked away in a maximum security prison surrounded by the DC villains that he put there.Â The latest description of the film doesn’t quite sound like Goyer’s original premise. The story takes place in a Maximum Security Prison for the Super-Natural as a skilled guard must join forces with a lethal inmate after a riot ensues in order to fight his way through various monsters and mad-men in order to survive. Doesn’t sound like an Ollie Queen movie to me.
According to Slash Flim, the Green Arrow centric movie Super Max is getting a name change to Green Arrow. The well-reviewed script, which sees Green Arrow facing off in a high security prison with DC villains like The Riddler, is by Justin Marks, who wrote the aforemenioned He-Man script thatâ€™s driving the Internet nuts right now. Yeah, I think what happened is Warner Bros. did some research on message boards and sites like Major Spoilers and realized no one, NO ONE, would go and see a Green Arrow movie called Super Max. And seeings how the Green Arrow character is
Looks like David Goyer has a lot of fingers in a lot of pots. Variety is reporting the author/screenwriter/director has been signed to direct Baltimore, or the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire, based on a graphic novel by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden. Just-published by Bantam, the graphic novel tells the story of the awakening of supreme evil on Earth. Lord Henry Baltimore is bitten by a demonic vampire bat on a WWI battlefield. The plague destroys his family, and Baltimore creates a team to hunt and fight the Red King, the embodiment of all evil. Goyer is still
Obsessed With Film is also reporting the Magneto movie will take place in the time period of the current X-Men films and may remind many viewers of Boys From Brazil. Take the jump for some potential spoilers about the flick that will reunite Magneto and Prof. X.
David Goyer was interviewed by Wizard and gave the site/mag an update on the current state of many of his projects, including the Green Arrow/Maximum Security prison thriller. “We haven’t even officially turned in a script for that yet. The idea is that they’re mostly sort of third-tier DC villains, but that was part of the fun, that they’re relatively obscure. But Icicle is in it from JSA—from my days on writing that. I mean, people will recognize most of them. What we did was present to DC a list of people we wanted, and then they went through it
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. via Variety
ComicbookMovie.com has posted a rumor that Matt Damon may play the role of The Green Arrow in the currently in pre-pre-production SuperMax movie penned by David Goyer. The film tells the story of a falsely accused Ollie Queen stripped of his hero gig and thrown into a super maximum security prison where he has to make a prison break with a bunch of B and C-list DC villains. I met Matt Damon yesterday in the city during his break from the 3rd installment of The Bourne Identity series and I asked him if he was doing any comic book movies.
David Goyer has announced he is off The Flash movie. WTF DC!? Did you not pay attention to what Goyer did with Batman Begins? That’s Hollywood Gold Baby! I am sad to say that my version of The Flash is dead at WB. The God’s honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn’t agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I’m quite proud of the screenplay I turned in. I threw my heart into it and I genuinely think it would’ve been the basis of a ground-breaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading
