David S. Goyer Talks Future BATMAN Movies and Whether He’d Consider Being Involved

     April 3, 2013


Though director Christopher Nolan is more widely associated with the most recent feature film iteration of Batman given that he’s, well, the director, David S. Goyer was also intricately involved with bringing The Dark Knight Trilogy to the big screen as Nolan’s close collaborator.  Goyer and Nolan came up with the initial story for all three films and the two co-wrote the script for Batman Begins.  Nolan has put an end to his relationship with Batman with last year’s closing chapter The Dark Knight Rises, but Warner Bros. will obviously be bringing Batman back to the big screen sooner rather than later given that it’s a billion dollar franchise.

Steve recently sat down with Goyer in anticipation of the upcoming Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons, which Goyer created, wrote, and executive produced.  During the course of their conversation, Steve asked the scribe if he would consider working on a future Batman film should Warner Bros. seek his involvement.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

batman-reboot-the-dark-knightThere have been numerous rumors regarding how Warner Bros. is approaching another Batman film, and while we have no confirmation on when the pic might come to fruition or whether it would be a straight sequel to Nolan’s films or a complete reboot, we do know that it is indeed coming.  Steve asked Goyer if he would be happy to return to the Batman universe should Warner Bros. ask him to be involved, and while the answer isn’t incredibly revealing, it does sound like Goyer hasn’t completely ruled the idea out:

“Um, I don’t know, honestly.  I worked on Batman for 10 years, so that’s a lot of Batman.  I’m not sure… I don’t really know, I haven’t been asked that yet so we’ll see.”

the-dark-knight-rises-batman-movie-rebootCollider: Obviously you and Christopher Nolan had a very successful relationship on the Batman movies.  It’s a billion dollar property that Warner Bros. obviously at some point will want to continue, and I imagine it’ll be after Justice League.  If they came to you and said, “We really want you to be involved in another Batman movie” whether it be a reboot, sequel, far off in the future, is it something that you’d be happy to go back to?

DAVID S. GOYER: Um, I don’t know, honestly.  I worked on Batman for 10 years, so that’s a lot of Batman.  I’m not sure. 

Getting the keys to the Ferrari might be different.

GOYER: Yeah, I don’t know.  I don’t really know, I haven’t been asked that yet so we’ll see. 

Is there a comic book or graphic novel that you’ve read recently that you’ve just been in love with, or have you had the time to read?

GOYER: Yeah, I still read stuff.  I like Matt Kindt’s Mind Management, which is a Dark Horse book.  I’m a big fan of [Matt] Fraction’s Fantastic Four.
