Goyer: DC Won't Follow Marvel Plans

The path taken by Marvel Studios has been an incredibly successful one, so much so that many have been wondering why DC and Warners haven't simply copied the formula.

Now, "Man of Steel" and "Batman vs. Superman" scribe David Goyer tells IGN that there isn't a plan to create a more cohesive singular DC Cinematic Universe just yet:

"It's too early. I know that Warner Bros. would love to make their universe more cohesive. There have been a lot of general conversations about that, but it's really, really early. I'm not sure. Marvel has had enormous success, but I'm not sure that everybody should try to emulate them either. Its just been vague conversations so far."

Asked if watching how the Marvel universe is unfolding both at its own studio and at both Fox and Sony are impacting his approach to material, he says:

"I know this is going to sound cheap, but I don't really. There's just our approach to how we want to tell a story, and hopefully we can convince Warner Bros. or whatnot of that. We don't sit in a room with cigars and say, 'Look at what these guys are doing!' It doesn't work that way. I don't know... We've been pretty lucky with the films we've done so far. I think right now it's just kind of, 'More of the same, please.'"
