David Goyer (The Dark Knight and Blade) will write the new Superman movie, to be titled The Man of Steel! Goyer “had an idea that actually takes the movies back to the John Byrne incarnation. Modern. Believable. FUN!”
The site adds that Brandon Routh will not star in the film and Bryan Singer is not expected to direct.
Goyer’s story involves Lex Luthor and Brainiac. It is not an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry. The story also sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.
