David S. Goyer Is Warner Bros.' Kevin Feige?

David S. Goyer Is Warner Bros.' Kevin Feige?

That's the report from Bleeding Cool who say that producers looking to get Booster Gold, Suicide Squad, Deathstroke and Team 7 movies off the ground have been told they have to partner with the Batman vs Superman screenwriter.

David Goyer is DC Kevin Feige


Bleeding Cool has been proven right on a few recent movie scoops so it warrants discussion when they post that their movie sources have heard that Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman screenwriter David S. Goyer is being referred to as "DC's Kevin Feige". The site reports that interested producers have met with Warner Bros. about film adaptations for Suicide Squad, Booster Gold, Deathstroke and the recent Wildstorm-esque Team 7 of DC's New 52 relaunch. These producers are reportedly being told that the first step in getting their project moving forward is to enlist the aid of Goyer. In this instance, it appears that the box office bottom line on the recent Christopher Nolan Batman films and Man of Steel may have put Goyer in the driver's seat of the DC Cinematic Universe.

Oh God no...
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:14 AM
It was always going to be him or Nolan. Four of his movies are among my favorite comic book movies, so I'm cool with this.
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:15 AM
A Deathstroke & Suicide Squad movie would be awesome.
ReeferInferno - 11/21/2013, 10:16 AM
Get some new blood in there...
JordanKing - 11/21/2013, 10:17 AM
HAHAHAHAHAHA..

That sure was easy. They're basically throwing in the towel! Really, nice work.
Nick56 - 11/21/2013, 10:17 AM
I'm cool with this. Goyer is way better than Feige, one is an experienced CBM writer and the other is a bit of a hack
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:18 AM
@Omega

So Marvel can have Kevin Feige produce 30 Marvel movies, but its wrong for DC to have Goyer for anymore than 4?
Brainiac13 - 11/21/2013, 10:20 AM
Anyone know what happened to the Superman Batman movie titles article. .....was it removed for being legit?

On the article at hand......Not sure how I feel having Goyer producing.......if it gets us lots of good DC movies in the next five years.....then maybe.
Nick56 - 11/21/2013, 10:21 AM
All I hear is more fanboy whining, not surprised

I agree with Batmaniac and OldGreg
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:22 AM
Yes, because it looks like Goyer will become the president of production for DC movies. As the article suggests, its similar to Kevin Feige's role at Marvel.

The only difference is, Goyer has experience with writing movies where as Kevin Feige doesn't.
wcwpoet - 11/21/2013, 10:23 AM
Before Man of Steel I would've been yes good idea but afterwards.

NOOOOO!
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 10:24 AM
Hmmmmm they have my undivided attention!
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 10:25 AM
By the way if you give us a Deathstroke or Suicide Squad I will $hit bricks!!!!!!
Nick56 - 11/21/2013, 10:26 AM
Goyer has Blade 1, 2 Batman Begins, TDK, TDKR, and MOS under his belt so I seem no real reason to be that upset.

Plus MOS was a fantastic movie
Chucky2003 - 11/21/2013, 10:26 AM
i hope not
ALegendaryPanda - 11/21/2013, 10:26 AM
So much [frick]ing whining and trolling! In only the first 20 comments! I'm actually looking forward to seeing where this universe goes so you won't hear any complaints from me.

And of course Sage would be the first comment. [frick]ing faggot.
ItsATrap - 11/21/2013, 10:27 AM
Ya, this is awful news. He can't do it alone. All of his best stuff (aka nolan trilogy) was with Jonathan Nolan helping out on writing duties.

even Snyder would be a better boss. Or better yet, Affleck. that guy knows movies.

if he's in charge, we will never see a wonder woman movie.
Nick56 - 11/21/2013, 10:27 AM
@1to10youLose I 100% agree
VISIONaryNPa - 11/21/2013, 10:27 AM
no way. WHERE'S BRUCE TIMM WHEN YOU NEED HIM?!

[frick] this. Goyer isn't that good of a director/screenwriter to piggy back a whole Universe on his back. He's no Kevin Fiege.
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:27 AM
Kevin Feige produced Daredevil, Blade: Trinity, Elektra, Fantastic Four, X-Men: The Last Stand, Spider-Man 3 and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer before he got to Iron Man.

The Man Of Steel was more successful than all those movies, and that goes without mentioning Goyer's work on the most successful CBM trilogy to date. So please, tell me, why wouldn't they put him at charge? By his resume alone, he is a FAR better pick than Feige.
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 10:27 AM
@ Nick56

I agree! But people want to find reasons to bitch! SMH! Fans want a DCU and now that we are getting it, it still is not good enough!
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
@ Batmaniac

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ckal - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
lol
Nomis - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
Other than the first Iron Man and the Avengers, all the other Marvels movies have been only so-so or crap so I hope not.
nikgrid - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
Suicide squad would [frick]ing rule!
TheVirgin - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
Why not hire me as the godfather for DC properties in WB's? I am definitely the man for the job! I will make DC live action films more epic than Marvel Studios!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 11/21/2013, 10:28 AM
Don't even care about the fate of the DCCU anymore.
VISIONaryNPa - 11/21/2013, 10:29 AM
@Nick56 Goyer only did the STORIES for TDK, BB, and TDKR.
SunfireUrA55 - 11/21/2013, 10:29 AM
Awsome! Goyer is a BRILLIANT writer.

Feige is a screwball, he doesn't respect the source material i.e. Iron Man, etc.
So there is NO comparison.
Omarvls - 11/21/2013, 10:29 AM
@Batmaniac

A Deathstroke movie before Deathpool?

Wonder how all the Marvel ONLY fanboys will take it
JoeMomma29 - 11/21/2013, 10:30 AM
Some of these comments have me cracking up!
VISIONaryNPa - 11/21/2013, 10:30 AM
@Batmaniac Goyer also wrote Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD. so... you were saying??
JoJo1982 - 11/21/2013, 10:31 AM
I guess y'all ppl forgot Kevin Feige involvement in

Fantastic four 1&2
Elektra
X-men last stand
Spiderman 3
J619SD - 11/21/2013, 10:31 AM
It is more than likely about wanting to keep all the DC properties in the same shared Universe.
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:31 AM
@Omarvls

They'll blame Fox, even though Marvel Studios wouldn't do a Deadpool movie anyway.
Bucky - 11/21/2013, 10:33 AM
@NPaMusic

Goyer wrote The Dark Knight Trilogy. I don't need to say anything more than that really to make my point.
RedandBlue - 11/21/2013, 10:34 AM
Whether you complain about it or not, they're still going to go about doing things the way they see fit, so just enjoy what you can out of it.

I enjoyed Man of Steel thoroughly, and I honestly think Zack has a great vision in mind. I don't understand the dislike for that movie. Snyder is %100 correct on Superman being able to kill. It's a rule that is made up. Hell in the last comic event for DC, they had Superman uncontrollably kill someone.

I hope the films are good and I worry just as much as any other fan, but the final product is something we can't control, so just enjoy it.
VISIONaryNPa - 11/21/2013, 10:34 AM
Goyer also produced both Ghost Rider films.. lawlz
