Christopher Nolan gets the majority of the credit for the recent success of Batman on screen, and rightfully so. His directorial eye helped turn the Dark Knight saga into a lucrative, creative series that several are using as the blueprint for future superhero success. After Nolan, credit starts going to Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, the late Heath Ledger and the cast members who brought Batman’s characters to life. But more credit should go to screenwriter David S. Goyer, who fed lines and constructed scenes to bring this world to life. So shouldn’t we be paying attention to the work that he’s about to do on Zack Snyder’s Superman movie, Man of Steel?
Goyer spoke to press during the Television Critics Association conference on behalf of Da Vinci’s Demons, yet took a moment to address Man of Steel, which he says he’s “really proud” of, even though working on a Superman movie ended up being far more difficult than the Batman, in Goyer’s mind.
Goyer wrote the Man of Steel screenplay for Snyder, from a story he cooked up with Nolan. Because of Nolan’s involvement, many are wondering if this will be the Batman Begins of the Superman world. And the recent trailers include a LOT of footage from Superman’s origin, with Kansas farm shots and young Clark Kent. We still don’t know what to expect of Man of Steel, but Goyer’s happy with it. We’ll find out on June 14.
