Batman Sorts Out Superman

It was recently announced elsewhere on the internets that Christopher Nolan, the brains behind the Batman Begins and Dark Knight, would be helping Superman get back on his feet in the soon to be written movie The Man of Steel. Now it is revealed that David Goyer, writer of the two recent batman flicks, is to write the screenplay for Superman’s return to the big screen. The old(ish) team of Brandon Routh and Bryan Singer are out and the Batman team are in.

Obviously from the studio’s point of view this is a great idea; they made Batman cool and contemporary so should be able to do the same for Superman. In theory this makes sense, I just hope Man of Steel has a different tone to The Dark Knight as it’s nice to have a bit of diversity out there and it’s worth noting Goyer isn’t flawless; he did create the TV series FlashForward. As Goyer’s idea is described as “Modern.  Believable.  FUN!” we should be alright.

I’m just glad it’s not another origin story.

  1. Didn’t Goyer create that other sci-fi show about some disease that got canned? Erm.. Threshold! And also Blade series. He’s got a lot to atone for.

    But Brandon Routh!
