David Goyer Teases How Superman's Actions In MAN OF STEEL Will Lead To JUSTICE LEAGUE
"Superman is the first one. Superman comes forward and announces himself to the world. In him announcing himself, he’s the one that changes things." Hit the jump to hear more from David Goyer on how Man of Steel has kicked the door wide open for a DC Cinematic Universe and Justice League!
Warner Bros. are taking a very different approach to their DC Cinematic Universe when compared to what Marvel Studios have done, but it arguably sounds as if it could work just as well (if not better). Whereas Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and the rest all happened roughly at the same time and led to a team being assembled to tackle an almighty threat in The Avengers, it appears as if Superman's actions in Man of Steel will lead to other superheroes being inspired to step forward as well. "It is our intention that, in success, this would be the zero issue and from this point onward, possible films could expand into a shared universe," Man of Steel and Justice League screenwriter David Goyer told Bleeding Cool. "In our world, the Man of Steel world, Zack has gone on record saying that we’re implying there are other superheroes in this world. But I don’t know that they’ve come forward yet. The idea is that Superman is the first one. There might be people helping people, but not in costumes, and that Superman comes forward and announces himself to the world. In him announcing himself, he’s the one that changes things."
What this means is that the planned Man of Steel could introduce or at least mention the fact that more superpowered individuals have emerged across America and they could then potentially be brought together as quickly as they were in DC's "The New 52" reboot. When asked if, "Bruce Wayne will feel alright in his ears, where he might not have dressed up like that before. Is that the kind of thinking?", Goyer replied: "Well, yes… there’s definitely… I don’t want to get too in depth. Obviously, Zack and I have had conversations… but there would be a cause and effect. And that would extend to the collateral damage that happened, and to what other countries feel about the fact Superman calls America his home. Man of Steel doesn’t exist in a vaccum."
