David S. Goyer Rumoured to be Writing the Next Superman Movie: The Man of Steel


If this were Lying in the Gutters, I would give this story an amber or possibly even a red traffic light. Basically, take this news with a pinch of salt!

Latino review are reporting that their informant ‘Pinche Taco’ has told them that David S. Goyer has been hired to write the screenplay for the next Superman movie, which is rumoured to have the working title The Man of Steel. Goyer is already rumored to be attached to write the next movie in the Batman franchise, but isn’t supposed to be writing the full script.

For the sake of posterity, here is Piche Taco’s full message:

Hola Chicos, Pinche Taco here with the latest blatherings de nada de los Ninos de Hollywood!

So you will believe un hombre can fly!  Te Juro.  The talented David Stephen Goyer, the man who made sure Nolan stuck to the legend of El Dark Knight, has been hired to write the next chapter.  Here is what El Taco can tell all you ninos….

  1. Thomas Tull, the head of Legendary, got tired of all the discussion and decided chingate, let’s do it.  So he went to Goyer and Goyer had an idea that actually takes the movies back to the John Byrne incarnation.  Modern.  Believable.  FUN!  So Tull got Goyer hired.
  2. The film will not be called Superman and will be called THE MAN OF STEEL.
  3. Brandon Routh will not star in the film.
  4. Nic Cage will NOT star in the fllm (lol)
  5. Bryan Singer is not expected to direct.

Conoces como Mark Millar walks around acting like he was going to write it?  El Taco discovered that this was always BULLSHIT.  Paul Levitz hated the guy and he was never even discussed to write it.  He made all that “almost” stuff up.

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.

El Taco is muy excited about this.  This could be the Superman movie we deserve!

Yo soy El Taco y yo digo adios!

Like I said, take it with a dole of salt, or sal in this case
