David S. Goyer recently sat down with I Am Rogue about the high-anticipated and hush-hush Superman film Man of Steel. Hit the jump for the complete talk with Goyer on such topics like the Wonder Twins!
IAR: Since you have been a comic book writer and have worked on comic book adapted movies for so long, did you feel that your extensive knowledge of comic book folklore and the mythology of this character helped you in writing the screenplay?
Goyer: It did help! Although, writing Batman Begins, even Da Vinci’s Demons, and now Superman, I mean yes, I would go to the comic books but I would also call from a lot of sources that don’t have anything to do with comic books. I read a lot of mythic poems and versus for Superman, Beowulf and Gilgamesh, hero legends and things like that. Not just comic books.
IAR: Can you talk about your decision to not include Lex Luthor in Man of Steel?
Goyer: I don’t think anyone has every confirmed that we haven’t included him.
Super-excited to hear that they are including the bald man, one of my favorite DC villains. A lot of hope on this movie, I’m personally excited to see what Snyder can do with the franchise! Man of Steel is here to save the day on June 14th!
Stay tooned 😛
