David S. Goyer talks writing Man Of Steel

With Man Of Steel set to swoop into cinemas in just over six months time, screenwriter David S. Goyer has been talking about the character, and how writing for Superman compares to writing for Batman.

“I’m really proud of it,” begins Goyer. “I never thought I would be doing a Superman film, but I think the only possible way to top myself or ourselves on Batman is to tackle Superman, who’s kind of the Granddaddy of all the superheroes.

“He’s trickier, it’s kind of easier doing a dark character who doesn’t have any super powers, but I’m really proud of what we’ve done and I can’t wait for people to see it.

“I think the movie is going to be the right movie for the times,” he continues. “I’m happy that movie is coming out in the summer, because I think it’s the kind of movie that the world needs right now.”

It could be Commissioner Gordon speaking, couldn’t it? Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe and Amy Adams, Man Of Steel opens on 14 June 2013.
