One of the reasons that Marvel’s cinematic universe is working so well and is so organized is that one man – Kevin Feige – is overseeing all the projects. It looks like Warner Bros. has found their own Kevin Feige for their DC Comics universe and that man is David S. Goyer.
At one point, many people thought Christopher Nolan would be the overlord of the DC Comics movie world, but he has a lot on his plate. That makes the man responsible for writing Batman Begins and Dark Knight Rises the next best choice. With the money Warner Bros. has made off those two movies as well as Man of Steel, it seems like they are positioning their future on the shoulders of David S. Goyer.
Of course, it is hard to forget that he also wrote the David Hasselhoff version of Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD, The Crow: City Of Angels, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Blade: Trinity, so it’s clear why Marvel didn’t want anything to do with him.
Goyer will be a producer from here out on DC Comics movies, and this is also probably why he got the Sandman adaptation. It also appears that the filmmakers that want to make adaptations Suicide Squad, Booster Gold, Deathstroke and Team 7 have been told they have to work with David S. Goyer as a producer if they want to make them.
I would assume that would also include Guillermo Del Toro and the Justice League: Dark project, which is troublesome. Having one man in control of the DC Comics movie world is a good idea, but is David S. Goyer the right man for the job? Let us know your thoughts below.
