Seems like Warner Bros. is really keen on getting the Superman franchise off the ground, again. With Chris Nolan already attached as a consultant, now comes the news that “Batman Begins” and the “Dark Knight” scriber David Goyer has been hired to write “Superman: The Man of Steel.” One source over at LatinoReview spills even more details, which includes two familiar faces absent from the film credits:
Thomas Tull, the head of Legendary, got tired of all the discussion and decided chingate, let’s do it. So he went to Goyer and Goyer had an idea that actually takes the movies back to the John Byrne incarnation. Modern. Believable. FUN! So Tull got Goyer hired.
The film will not be called Superman and will be called THE MAN OF STEEL.
Brandon Routh will not star in the film.
Nic Cage will NOT star in the fllm (lol)
Bryan Singer is not expected to direct.
Good luck finding another actor who resembles Christopher Reeve to a T.
