Goyer Takes on Man of Steel
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are in talks with BATMAN BEGINS writer David Goyer to help reboot Superman in MAN OF STEEL, reports VARIETY. WB is eager to get a new Superman film in theaters before it loses the copyright in 2013.
Insiders say that his take on the Man of Steel is action oriented with Superman fighting against a plot between Lex Luthor and Brainiac.
Goyer is a typical comic book go-to man having penned the BLADE series and GHOST RIDER, as well as a draft of X-MEN ORIGINS: MAGNETO. He's also a co-creator on the ABC's sci-fi series FLASHFORWARD.
Goyer is currently working with Christopher Nolan on a script for THE DARK KNIGHT sequel.
