Back in September 2013, we reported that NBC was in talks with David Goyer to bring the graphic novel Constantine to life via a live-action TV series (which would hopefully tell the story of the dark magic anti-hero John Constantine a little better than the sub-par Keanu Reeves film).  Today, we can tell you that things apparently...

Sandman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Where Marvel has done a great job at introducing characters to the big screen who might not necessarily be slam dunks (Thor, Captain America), DC has shown that they can do Batman pretty well, and struggled with everything else. That may have changed this summer with Man of Steel, which has paved the way for a new Batman, and it seems for them they trust in David...

Ever since Marvel had one the largest cinematic hits in human history with The Avengers, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been wanting to copy the universe-building formula and make similar amounts of money by doing the exact same thing with The Justice League.  Warner Bros. was cautious, though, and held off until Man of Steel’s release to determine whether or not...

Apparently a source believes that Zack Snyder, David Goyer and Warner Bros are basically in possession of Hermoine Granger's magical time-turner necklace if they think that they can complete Man of Steel 2 in time for a 2014 release.

After the abject failure of Superman Returns, Man of Steel manages to surprise those with low expectations (myself included) with its solid casting and crazy action, but for those expecting the greatest comic book movie of all time, you might need a cold shower.

If there's one superhero that everybody, whether they'd be comic book fans or not, would unanimously consider to be the most popular one of them all, it's Superman. After his first appearance in the late 1930s, Superman has remained a monstrous icon in the world of comics and pop culture for decades. So it's no surprise that screenwriter David Goyer had his hands full when it was time for him...

Because it’s a post-The Dark Knight Rises superhero film (that also happens to produced by Christopher Nolan and written by David Goyer, with a story co-written by Nolan) Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, is all kinds of “dark” and “gritty”—so much so that it appears to have gone full Dark Knight, to paraphrase...

Last week, writer, director, and producer David Goyer made the decision to leave his gig as showrunner on the ABC sci-fi drama, "FlashForward." On the surface, the news doesn't appear to have anything to do with the next installment in Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, but being as analytical as we are, this might be a tell-tale sign that the third film is upon us.
