Following the news yesterday that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have set Warner Bros. back nearly half a billion dollars to make, writer David Goyer has been talking about his reaction to a screening of the film.
“I think just the kind of giddiness in being a kid that grew up going to the comic book store every Saturday and reading comic books in which these two epic characters clashed,” he told Collider while promoting Da Vinci’s Demons. “Just the fact that I got to be involved in something like that is crazy. Much less that I got to be involved in two cinematic iterations of Batman is also crazy.”
While he wouldn’t go into specifics, Goyer promised “some cool stuff” in the movie. So there’s at least that.
