The writing narrative around “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a fascinating one that hasn’t really come to full light yet, but it’ll be interesting to hear what happened when all the filmmakers are ready to talk. You’ll remember Zack Snyder and co. originally had a May, 2015 release date in mind and as early as October of last year, the filmmaker was shooting some kind of football game scene that involved a team from Gotham (Batman’s digs) and Metropolis (obviously the home to Superman). It all seemed like full steam ahead.

She-Hulk
Even though he’s one of the main influences behind the modern comic book film as we know it, David S. Goyer consistently seems less and less enamored with shepherding DC in configuring their vast universe of characters for the big screen. As his “Man of Steel” sequel, “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” tried to dominate the news yesterday with its title announcement, the focus turned instead to a more critical direction—Goyer’s misjudged comments regarding two DC superheroes, in particular, She-Hulk and Martian Manhunter.

Fantastic Voyage David Goyer
The last time we heard about the James Cameron produced remake of the 1966 sci-fi "Fantastic Voyage," he presented it as a romance. “I gave [fomerly attached director Shawn Levy] my idea about how this should be turned into a love story and he’s really run with it,” he said way back in 2011. Since then, "Avatar" has become Cameron's life and we haven't heard much about "Voyage," but it's now slowly kicking back to life.

David S. Goyer, D.C.
David S. Goyer is the screenwriter of the “Blade” trilogy, Christopher Nolan's Batman films and now Zack Snyder's Superman/DC series, and you could make a decent case that he's therefore the single most important influence on the modern superhero movie, more even than the directors he has worked for, even if in the wider world he's barely famous enough to be mistaken for Stanley Tucci.

David S. Goyer, D.C.
Connecting universes is cool these days, but only insofar as that a billion dollars is cooler than a million dollars. Proof in the pudding? With the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the highest grossing franchise of all time domestically, beating both the "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter" series.

It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan kept his distance from the fanboys during the making of his “The Dark Knight” trilogy, never once stopping by the infamous San Diego Comic-Con or doing much in the way of pandering to the geek audience. In a recent interview with Spinoff Online (via Slashfilm), “Batman Begins” co-writer David Goyer revealed himself to be simpatico with the chilly auteur.

Sandman Joseph Gordon-Levitt
As always, this kind of stuff is filled with "maybes," "probablys" and "perhaps one day" — that's the way rumors go. But it's also tantalizing enough that one can't really ignore it, though as always, take this info with a big grain of salt.

A new tweet has arrived people. A tweet! Yes, it’s Friday and we're all halfway into the weekend, so let’s get right into it. What are we carping on about?

To The Wonder, Olga Kurylenko
Rumors have been swirling around the Internet for several days now: Wonder Woman is going to make some kind of appearance, or have a significant role in “Batman Vs. Superman.” Actress and “Thor 2: The Dark World” goddess Jaimie Alexander recently became a woman in question because she revealed that she had been having conversations with WB about the superhero team-up film and knew what the plot was about. Oh course, that speculation led many to assume she’d be playing the Amazonian heroine.
