Rumor: David S. Goyer to Pen Man of Steel Sequel
It’s not uncommon these days for a studio to begin work on a sequel before the first film even releases. In fact, more and ore often, this is the case. With Warner Brothers and DC Comics, however, this is a bit of surprising news; at least to this geek. With the studio recently going back to the drawing board on their potential Justice League film, likely putting it on hold to see how Man of Steel performs at the box office, it is rather interesting to hear that the studio may already be working on a sequel for the Superman reboot.
Think McFly Think is reporting that this may be the case and scribe David S. Goyer is the man they are turning to for a script. Goyer is a bit of a fan favorite and a go-to-guy for Warners, having worked on Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and this year’s Man of Steel. He’s also done work on the final two Blade films. The site claims that a Justice League film is still high on the priority list, but a Man of Steel sequel has moved closer to the forefront, especially since we’re hearing that the film is quite impressive.
Rumor we’re hearing, and frankly the one that makes the most sense – hence the article you’re reading, has the studio aiming their tractor beams at a Superman sequel. Whatever title they bestow upon it (The Man of Tomorrow? The Last Son of Krypton?It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman Two?) the studio is accelerating it into development with David Goyer back on writing duties.
Until they can get their proverbial ducks in a row in regards to a Justice League film, beginning work on a Superman sequel seems to be the smart move, as the site suggests. Not to mention, it’s likely a new Batman film won’t be happening for a few years, and the Flash and Wonder Woman films are stuck in development hell. To say there is a lot riding on Man of Steel is a huge understatement.
