‘Batman Begins’ writer says writing Superman for ‘Man of Steel’ is more difficult

Just as the Batman trilogy concludes, Warner Bros will be bringing Superman back to the big screen with a new film directed by Zack Snyder (“300,” “Watchmen”). Writer David S. Goyer worked on the story and screenplay and says it was more difficult than adapting the cape crusader.

“I’m happy that movie is coming out in the summer, because I think it’s the kind of movie that the world needs right now.”

Goyer was key in the early drafts of “Batman Begins” which kicked off the trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan.

“I’m really proud of it,” begins Goyer. “I never thought I would be doing a Superman film, but I think the only possible way to top myself or ourselves on Batman is to tackle Superman, who’s kind of the Granddaddy of all the superheroes.

“He’s trickier, it’s kind of easier doing a dark character who doesn’t have any super powers, but I’m really proud of what we’ve done and I can’t wait for people to see it.”

Henry Cavill stars as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Michael Shannon will play Zod to head an all-star cast.
