Scheduled to be released in July 2015, screenwriter David Goyer says the untitled Superman vs. Batman film is further along in production than people realize. “One of the things that has been fun for us, is we’re a bit further along than what I think people realize,” stated Goyer, who is also a screenwriter for Man of Steel, in a recent interview with the Associated Press. Goyer is also the writer for the Man of Steel sequel (slated for release in 2015), and the Dark Knight trilogies. While the highly anticipated film seems to hint towards a battle between the two DC heroes, there has been little talk about the major plot of the movie. Henry Cavill will reprise his role of Superman in the movie with Ben Affleck joining him on screen as the latest Batman. Other actors also reprising their Man of Steel roles include Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. When it was revealed two months ago that Affleck would be tackling the iconic role of Batman, the reactions from fans has ranged from disappointment to approval of the casting decision. Stan Lee supported the casting choice. Tim Carvell, head writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, tweeted this after the announcement: “Spend ten years working your way back into everyone’s good graces. Win an Oscar. Then you get cast as Batman, and BAM! You’re Gigli again." Despite some of the negative thoughts on casting, Goyer stated he is focusing more on the story than the criticism. “At the end of the day you still have to create something,” he said. “And if you try to think, ‘Well, what would the fans like, what would the audience like?’ then you stop being creative and 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." Do you think the movie will be worth watching? Is Ben Affleck a good choice to play Batman?
