David Goyer Back On Batman!

David Goyer was one of the key players in the recent live action Batman revival. Last year he took on showrunning duties over at ABC on their "Lost Lite" sci fi show "FlashForward." Recently we learned he has stepped aside from "Flashforward," in order to focus on some film projects, including the next Batman film!

Goyer had this to say about the show,

"As my feature projects have started ramping up again, I felt I was being pulled in too many directions. I'm proud of the show and excited about the relaunch. It's in great hands."

Deadline Hollywood recently got the Goyer scoop on his involvement in the third Batman film in the "Nolan-verse,"

"Goyer's feature career is really heating up, since he co-wrote Batman Begins, and penned the story for The Dark Knight, and is now writing the third Batman installment with Chris Nolan's brother Jonah."

Goyer has been hit-or-miss with me as far as comic properties are concerned. He's dabbled in writing, producing and directing (Blade: Trinity) and some have been hits (Batman films) and some have been misses (Blade TV show).

He's definitely got his hands full with "Batman," "Ghost Rider," "Super Max," and "X-Men Origins: Magneto." Here's hoping he can focus his attentions and put out a quality product with the next Batman film.

  1. I agree, Goyer is definitely hit or miss, but granted his does know his Batman (Begins and TDK) I'm not too worried. Especially if he's writing with Jonah because he's a terrific writer!
