‘Dark Knight’ Writer Tackled ‘Man Of Steel’ To Top Batman

If you’re one of the geniuses behind the “Dark Knight” trilogy, where do you go next? How do you top yourself? If you’re screenwriter David Goyer, then you look up in the sky.

Goyer is one of the writers behind “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot. Speaking with Access Hollywood, Goyer expressed his pride in his vision of the Man of Tomorrow, particularly considering that he never imagined he’d ever make a Superman movie in his life.

“I’m really proud of it,” he said, according to Superhero Hype. “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 whose 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. 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.”
