Goyer Talks His Upcoming Films

Writer/Director David S. Goyer talked with Wizard Universe recently about how the various film projects he has in development are going:

Magneto: “We’ve done some scouts and it mostly takes place in Europe and Argentina. We’re doing budgets and we’re sort of halfway crewed up, and so that’ll be the big question: whether we can bring it in for a price.”

The Invisible Man: “I’ll be doing that next year…. I just randomly had this idea for what would sort of be a direct sequel, which literally starts like a month after the original Invisible Man in Victorian England. I went in and I pitched this whole thing to Universal and to [producer] Brian Grazer and they loved it. So we were off and running.”

Heroes: Origins: “If I’m available, I’d love to do one. I think it would be fun, and I also like the idea that these origin episodes are self-contained and there’s the opportunity to sort of stylistically go off in different directions.”

Supermax: “We haven’t even officially turned in a script for that yet. The idea is that they’re mostly sort of third-tier DC villains, but that was part of the fun, that they’re relatively obscure. But Icicle is in it from JSA—from my days on writing that. I mean, people will recognize most of them. What we did was present to DC a list of people we wanted, and then they went through it on a case-by-case basis and told us whether we could have them or not.”
