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.
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 internet.Â And I know it sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.
It should be noted that this a one of those H’Wood rumors that need to be confirmed to be believed, but Variety reported something similar a few days ago, so this may be the way it goes down.Â It should be noted that we did report that Goyer stepped away from ABC’s FlashForward to work on a new film project, and that could be the clue that he’s working on the red and blue.Â To counter that, Harry Knowles said he spoke with the head of Legendary Pictures who states that the Latino Review story isn’t true at all.
Believe it, or not, Major Spoilerites?
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?
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. So without an Ollie, does that mean the villains and monsters won’t be recognized DC villains either?Â Shooting for the film is set to begin in the early part of 2010.
Here’s a jaw dropping moment for you – Columbia Pictures is actually revving up production on a second Ghost Rider film.Â David Goyer is in talks to write the script, with the expectation that Nicolas Cage will reprise his role as Johnny Blaze.
The “Ghost Rider” push comes amid a flurry of activity with Marvel characters at Sony, Fox, Universal and Paramount. The movement is necessary for those studios to retain rights to their respective Marvel superheroes.
With this revelation, it makes perfect sense for Columbia to jump on a sequel in order to keep Marvel (and thus Disney) from snagging back the film rights to the property.
Even though the Scream Awards won’t air until Tuesday night on Spike TV, the winners have already been leaked throughout the Internet, following the taping of the show on Sunday.Â The Dark Knight comes in as the big winner, and if you are a big believer in awards and want to see who else picks up a Scream Award, take the jump.
In this bonus episode, Rodrigo and Stephen review the Batman: Gotham Knight DVD from Warner Video.
Acclaimed screenwriters including David Goyer (Batman Begins) Josh Olson (A History of Violence) and Alan Burnett (Batman The Animated Series) join forces with revered animation filmmakers on six spellbinding chapters chronicling Batman s transition from novice crimefighter to Dark Knight. These globe-spanning adventures pit Batman against the fearsome Scarecrow the freakish Killer Croc and the unerring marksman Deadshot. Using an arsenal of high-tech gadgetry from Wayne Industries Batman s ethical boundaries exist only where he chooses to place them leaving some fearful of his power. The sharp storytelling complemented by stylish art from some of the world s most visionary animators masterfully depicts the blurred lines of Batman as man myth and legend.
