The president of DC Entertainment, Diane Nelson, said that in the coming months we should be hearing some more news regarding upcoming DC films. Well, we are already getting news that David Goyer will be writing the next Superman film. And yes, Lex Luthor is involved, lol.
Thanks to Collider:
“I can tell you that Goyer’s story involves Luthor and Brainiac. It is NOT an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry. I know the Daily Planet is struggling due to the internet. And I know it sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.”
Thank god its not an origin story. I’ve gotten so sick of origin stories that its gotten ridiculous. Yeah, “Batman Begins” was fantastic, but Spider-man is also getting his origin told again, which is unnecessary. My question is, will it be a reboot of the series? Or will it take place after “Superman Returns”? I doubt its the latter, however.
I’m sure fans are gonna be annoyed that Lex Luthor will be involved. It doesn’t bother me because Lex Luthor is to Superman as The Joker is to Batman. Hopefully, Kevin Spacey will return as the character. His performance as Luthor was fucking incredible. Hey, at least we are getting a new villain involved.
There is also news that Jonah Nolan, who is helping Goyer with Batman 3, will also be writing the script. So, I guess they will be trying to crossover the films, which is gonna be disastrous to me.
Although, I could really care less about The Daily Planet in trouble because of the Internet. But, whatever, Superman is coming back.
