Having worked on Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy AND Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s fair to say that David Goyer knows his stuff when it comes to the caped crusader. So, when the writer and producer reveals he was giddy after seeing Zack Snyder's movie for the first time, you can’t help but get a little excited.
“I think just the kind of giddiness in being a kid that grew up going to the comic book store every Saturday and reading comic books in which these two epic characters clashed,” says Goyer, when asked by Collider what his reaction was to the finished film. “Just the fact that I got to be involved in something like that is crazy. Much less that I got to be involved in two cinematic iterations of Batman is also crazy.”
Goyer was predictably non-committal when asked to go into specifics about the film (“There’s some cool stuff that happens in the film, let’s just leave it at that.”), but hopefully we’ll learn a little more when the supposedly-imminent new trailer arrives. Directed by Zack Snyder and co-starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will open on March 25 2016.
