David S. Goyer, co-writer of The Dark Knight, will revamp Superman with a new film called The Man Of Steel. Can he do for Supes what he and the Nolans did for Batman? Spoilers ahead. Update: It’s confirmed!
So we have Goyer and Nolan working on Batman AND Superman. Good, but you just know the studio is going to want them to do it “dark,” which just won’t work for Superman, especially if they have any hope for a Batman/Superman movie.
The whole reason that dichotomy worked is because, while they had the same goals, they went about it opposite ways, to the point were they we at odds with each other.
The only way two dark superheros would be at odds with each other is if they fought over who’s edgier.
