David Goyer says Superman vs. Batman is further along than we realize; talks fan influence, and odds on the fight

09.27.2013

Fan anticipation for Zack Snyder's SUPERMAN VS BATMAN is certainly high and screenwriter David Goyer has a few things to say to fan those flames. Speaking to the Associated Press, Goyer discussed how far along they were on the film, saying,  “One of the things that has been fun for us, is we’re a bit a further a long than what I think people realize.”

Goyer also discussed fan influence and the odds of who would win in the battle between the two superheroes. In regards to fan influence, Goyer seems to be on the right track. You can't please everybody all the time and it seems that Goyer is considering fan expectations, while retaining his own storytelling.

 “From a fan point of view, we’re conscious of that when you’re working on these things, but you can’t let yourself be paralyzed by that. At the end of the day you still have to creat something. And if you try and think, ‘Well what would the fans like’ then you stop being creative. It’s sort of like where does it end? You have to write the story that you want to write, and hope that people want to see it.”

As far as who will win the final brawl, Goyer seems to have the pulse of common belief when it comes to comic book fans, which considers Superman's absolute strength matched against Batman's superior intelligence.

“Most comic book purest would says Batman because he is the ultimate strategist. Even though it makes no sense what so ever. If Superman just flicked his finger Batman would be done for. You'll have to watch the film in a year and a half or what not and see what happens.”

All in all, I'm just happy to hear that this is being made and excited at the prospects of DC entering the fray of a cinematic universe. There's a lot of possibility here and my hope (and expectation) is that Snyder, Goyer, Affleck, and Cavill will help make it memorable and sustainable.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN are set to throw down on July 17, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: I'm pretty sure the fight will be more of a draw in the final film. Do you want a clear victor or is a draw what you're expecting between Supes and Batman?

Of course he's further along than most would think. When you don't have to put thought or creativity into the script, it's a remarkably easy process....

Have to agree with Bob below

Goyer seems like he really does not have a handle on the DC cinematic universe. The only reason Man of Steel was not total crap was because Nolan helped write it.

I am in the wait and not expecting alot mode for this movie.

Goyer = Hack + Leech

If this movie wasn't in the hands of a complete idiot, I might be excited. But as is, nothing from the writer of Kickboxer 2, Nick Fury: Agent of Shield , Blade 3, Ghost Rider 2, Man of Steel, The Unborn, Jumper, The Crow: City of Angels , FlashForward, DevilDolls, or The Invisible will ever get me excited. That's a whole lot of shit.

If he was working in another genre I would be worried, but comic adaptations seem to be a strength of his. He's got a good understanding of what works and what doesn't. Plus, he's got the right attitude towards fan influence.

I never though I'd ever get to see a major studio multimillion dollar bat/supes movie. i think the idea of them fighting each other will be awesome to see on the big screen, but the greatest aspects of the duo has always been character development. I hope they don't focus on the fight too much. Batman emphasizes Clark's alien origins in that he's far more moral and humane and thus making him seem more human than the cold calculating Bruce and vise versa, superman shows how much of his humanity

Their contrasting approaches to being a hero helps develop and emphasize key aspects of their individual natures.

Batman can do anything with prep time.

I'm honestly not too big on the idea of a "vs." film for Batman and Superman. Sure, they should be at loggerheads at first and maybe clash, but not be all-out enemies. I do wish it was going to be called "World's Finest" instead of "Batman vs. Superman". I guess establishing something for the two characters to have a conflict over will be key; an antagonist or situation that sems to give Batman and Superman no choice but to fight each other because each

I have high hopes for Affleck, but I still think the whole premise is HORRIBLE. I'm all for them trying to team up, yet butting heads all the time on how to do things, but ffs, just give me a stand alone Batman movie, and a standalone Superman sequel, and then find ways to incorporate each other into them.

Then, the next movie can have them team up, find out team work is good, and then realize with the emergence of other heroes, that a 'league' needs to be created to combat growing evil.

Well duh

Superman vs. Batman was originally planned to be the follow-up after Batman and Robin. I'm pretty sure it was into pre-production by the time B&R flopped and halted everything. Even if it wasn't, this was still a shoot-ready script sitting at WB for years. They basically went from Man of Steel to this without hardly needing to wait for Goyer's input. I bet they even shot some footage opportunistically while filming MoS.

Incorrect. The planned followup to Batman & Robin was to be Batman Triumphant and the villain was to be the Scarecrow. Batman and Superman was planned after Batman & Robin came out. You can see the Batman and Superman logo on a cinema in the movie I Am Legend.

Might that mean some of its already in the can from the Man of Steel shoot? Similar to how Richard Donner shot Superman I & II before he got ludicrously canned?

I like the way hes going about this

I enjoyed MOS a lot even with its flaws, (The one that got me the most was Clark letting Pa Kent die, I think the best line from the original was when Clark says "All those things I can do. All those powers. And I couldn't even save him" and that pushed him to want to save everyone, and would have no doubt risked his secret to save a life but thats just me...oh and I dont mind him killing Zod in the least) I think Goyer didn't pen the best script but it really did lay the foundation for bigger

They def need to get the ball rolling on other solo movies that tie into this ( FLASH!!!!!!!!!!! and a Green Lantern reboot or Wonder Woman) But it seems like they are heading in the right direction. Extra Tidbit: I'm hoping the fight ends up like their first meeting in the JLA new 52, where Batman AND GL were clearly over matched until Batman could talk down Superman, for Batman to appear out of nowhere with Kryptonite wouldn't make much sense, sure he can discover it hurts Superman in the movie but he should be already packing it.

Why do they have to fight?

I'm not interested in a fight between Superman and Batman. I think the whole idea is preposterous and stupid to base a movie solely on that premise. Go away Zack Snyder.

As someone who thought Man of Steel was a definite failure, I must admit--it sounds like David Goyer is going about this the right way. Between this and the casting of Affleck, I'm cautiously optimistic.

Oh and...

Does anyone know if Affleck signed on for more than one Bats film? I would assume they would have done a contract like that, but I don't remember reading he signed a multi-picture deal, which if so, is another sign that DC doesn't have a big picture plan for their DCU and a lead up to the JL film. It could also mean they don't have 100% faith in Affleck, and maybe he just didn't want to commit bc of all his other projects, but I would really like the actor to be the same for at least as many

If DC is able to make this cinematic universe possible, they need to recast their characters as little as possible. I know marvel has done it with the Hulk and War Machine (and maybe a few other minor characters - iron man's dad?) but with Batman being one of their two biggest characters (prolly the biggest), I hope they don't change the actor much, but really at all.

Makes no sense?

Makes no sense, cause Supes has a high moral code, of course he could kill Batman with one finger, but he wouldn't....oh wait Goyer is writing the movie? That means he will just snap Batmans neck. The end, roll credits.

Some fanboys really need to let the fact go that Superman killed Zod. Man the fuck up about it, I thought it was pretty obvious that Superman was in an impossible situation of either letting a family die or killing Zod. I mean its pretty obvious I don't get what isn't understood about it. And about the collateral damage I again thought it was obvious that there wasn't really a way for Superman to force Zod to leave the city so they had to fight there.

On subject, I'm excited for this

My problem with Superman killing Zod was more that it wasn't fully explored. Superman roars in anguish, then bam! we're on to the next scene. If their intention was to show the origin of Superman's tendency not to murder his opponents, then this wasn't well communicated. Personally--I can't speak for anyone else--I disliked the execution by the filmmakers, not the actions of the character.

Couldn't have said it better myself. The fact he kills all three in Superman 2 is obviously lost on some people (I've loved some of the denials about that too, I saw one guy write there was obviously a Limbo at the bottom of the pitt or something...LOL) Guess the better option was to let Zod run wild and kill everyone so Superman wont kill

In Superman 2, Superman snapped Zod's hands and threw him against a wall in the Fortress of Solitude and then watched as he dropped down into the Arctic Ocean.

But, no, he didn't kill Zod. Really?

Superman wouldn't flick his finger. He's restricted by a higher moral code. Batman spied on Gotham (one-man NSA) and stalled a nuclear power project that could produce clean energy but didn't destroy it which made it possible for Bane to modify it into a bomb later. Batman fights dirty. Like the other comment said, there's probably a bad guy which they'll team up against.

Ya...I guess the question is, if Batman's so smart, and a great detective, why didn't he figure out who's manipulating him/Supes to fight before fighting him, which I assume will be this Batman's first encounter with a being that isn't human and has crazy super powers. Also, it's not like superman is just trigger happy looking for a fight. So it'll be interesting to see their motivation that gets them to fight, and by interesting I mean incredibly disappointing.

I didn't read the comics so I need some help. My first question is how do they make this an even fight? Obviously I'm thinking how do you make a regular man beat up Superman? Will he slow him down with Kryptonite or what? And more importantly why are they at odds? This seems like a great oppurtunity to have them team up? Help!!!!!!

Go rent the animated movie the dark knight returns and its' sequel. Or read Frank Miller's comics they were based off of. There's a couple of great instances of how batman sets up superman. But the problem with this movie is kryptonite hasn't even been introduced. But by and large, I don't agree with the author's statement that most comic book readers would pick Batman. They only say I'd MAYBE pick him is of he knows they are gonna fight and has time to set everything up and has some help

Also, in one of the comics, Batman reveals that he has secret wost-case-scenario plans in place for killing every member of the Justice League were they to turn rogue. Superman included. So basically, it's implied that Batman is always prepared for everything.

It seems like a no brainer....

....that Kryptonite would need to be involved for a human to stand a chance against a Kryptonian on Earth.. Superman's three vulnerabilities are:
1. Black holes
2. magical attacks
3. Kryptonite.
Since Batman has no magical/mystical powers, that eliminates that possibility. So unless Bruce Wayne creates some sort of earth equivalent of the Phantom drive and sucks Superman into a black hole or gets his hands on Kryptonite - he doesn't stand a chance.

This is either going to be 1 of the highest-grossing films of all time or a colossal bomb. I'm betting on the 1st. I'm very excited for this. Just as much, if not more, as I am for Episode VII, & that's saying a lot.

Until Batman gives Superman an impossible situation, and Supes just has to snap his neck.

I dont know if there should really be a fight as much as a dislike and a rivalry, much like hulk and thor.

All I know is if there is no Kryptonite established yet, than Superman better win. Other than that, very very excited.

I'm of the belief that Batman may be the first, who introduces Superman to Kryptonite.. To do the following:
a) reinforce Batman being the ultimate Tactician
b) to introduce Kryptonite all together
c) its always been Lex who figures out Kryptonite is Sup's weakness, why not have it be Batman?

Why would they need Kryptonite? Man of Steel establish that Superman can be enfeebled by exposure to an non earth specific atmosphere.
A Co2 fire extinguisher to the face. Batman kicks the fuck out of Superman. The end. Presumably in an orphanage to maximize collateral damage.

@rockstothechest I dont think it was just a non earth specific atmosphere, I think it was because it was Kryptonian and probably had some red sun influence in it, I could be wrong though

They expanded the source of Clark's abilities from not only the yellow sun but to also include Earth's "rich" atmosphere. They wouldn't have mentioned it if they hadn't intended on using it later as a convenience to cripple him so I'm sure it'll be forgotten come the next movie.
