Green Lantern Corps movie

A year ago, we learned that Batman Begins and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer was hired to write the script for DC and Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps movie alongside writer Justin Rhodes. Not long after, there were whispers that Goyer might end up directing the movie as well, but that rumor remains unconfirmed and the movie is still currently without a director.

Since then, we haven’t heard any concrete updates about the project. But that’s changed today, since an outlet caught up with Goyer yesterday and got him to confirm that the movie is “still in the works.” But it’s what he said next that paints a more interesting picture.

Masters of the Universe Release Date

The road to get a Masters of the Universe movie in theaters again has been paved with endless pit stops and speed bumps. Countless directors have flirted with the property, and plenty of writers have taken a crack at the script, including writers Alex Litvak and Mike Finch, who initially worked on the script over six years ago, circling back to try again most recently. Now we have some good news, some potentially decent news, and some great news regarding the development of the fantasy adaptation.

The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film. The potentially decent news is there’s a new writer on board. And the great news is that McG is no longer involved as director. Find about the Masters of the Universe release date and development after the jump. Read More »

Green Lantern Corps Director

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment already have Aquaman shooting this year, taking the December release date vacated by Avatar 2. But they also hope to have another piece of the DC Expanded Universe in front of cameras before the end of the year. One of the less likely options was Green Lantern Corps, a film that doesn’t have a director (just like The Flash), but there may be one waiting in the wings.

A new rumor indicates that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer, who is co-writing Green Lantern Corps with Justin Rhodes, might end up directing Green Lantern CorpsRead More »

david goyer batman v superman

Eventually, someone is going to write the comprehensive book about the superhero movie boom of the past fifteen years and it’s going to be a fascinating read. In the meantime, all we can do is pick through the rubble, dredge up trivia, and examine the broader strokes of how this genre, and the people making these movies, have changed.

And sometimes, an interesting nugget of information bubbles to the surface. In this case, it’s a quote from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice screenwriter David S. Goyer, who called the mere idea of a Batman vs. Superman movie terrible. Over a decade ago. While promoting Batman Begins. Which he also wrote.

krypton series update

You can’t bring up Man of Steel on the internet without wading into some kind of big argument about the moral implications of Superman punching buildings or how Marvel is better or some other kind of nonsense. But surely we can all agree that the film’s prologue, set on the planet Krypton shortly before its destruction, is pretty fantastic stuff? (Ed. note: No. But go on.) In just a few scenes, director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer craft an entire science fiction world that demands further exploration. Any movie that features Russell Crowe dodging laser blasts while astride a giant bug-dragon is okay by us.

So the idea of an entire TV series set on Krypton, titled, uh, Krypton, sounds appealing, even if the ending is pre-determined by Superman lore (Spoiler alert: everyone dies). And while it’s been a year since the show was officially announced, Goyer has revealed in a new interview that yes, the show is still in the works, thanks for asking.

Check out Goyer’s Krypton series update after the jump.
