Batman vs. Superman marks director Zack Snyder’s first collaboration with acting talent like Ben Affleck (playing Batman), Gal Gadot (playing Wonder Woman), and Jesse Eisenberg (playing Lex Luthor), but the filmmaker’s crew behind the camera features more familiar names to the Snyder world of cinema. That includes the movie’s co-writer David S. Goyer (Man of Steel), director of photography Larry Fong (300, Watchmen), and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (300: Rise of an Empire, which Snyder co-wrote and produced), among others.

When you're going to divide your cast into small groups and separate them by means either artificial or storyline-driven, you have to have something for them to do and you have to have someone else for them to play off of. On shows like Game Of Thrones, they can get away with sticking Arya away from the main action, or leaving Daenerys in Essos, because they have other strong characters to play off. Arya has The Hound; Dany has Ser Barristan, Jorah Mormont, and a trio of dragons. Given that Da Vinci's main cast is splintering into four little subgroups: Leo, Amerigo, and Zoroaster; Nico and Riario; Sixtus, Lupo, Good Sixtus, Lucrezia and her Asian bodyguard; and Piero Da Vinci and Lorenzo. »

Warner Bros. has tapped Justin Marks (screenwriter of Jon Favreau’s upcoming Jungle Book) to adapt the Vertigo Comics series Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics, with Warner’s DC go-to guy David S. Goyer set to serve as producer.
Created by writer Simon Oliver and artist Robbi Rodriguez, Fbp began its run in July 2013 and centres on a government agency – the Federal Bureau of Physics – whose job it is to deal with quantum disturbances such as wormholes and gravity failures, which are commonplace in the world.
Marks has previously collaborated with Goyer on the planned Green Arrow movie Green Arrow: Escape from Super Max, while he’s also adapted another DC property, Suicide Squad, for Warner Bros. and producer Dan Lin (Godzilla).

(Cbr) With Marvel even further strengthening the narrative ties between its film and television properties, many fans are clamoring for Warner Bros. to take a similar cohesive approach to its DC Comics characters on the big and small screens. Considering the popularity on The CW’s "Arrow", and anticipation for the spinoff "The Flash", diehards are looking for links between those superhero dramas and the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, which will introduce not only the new Batman but Wonder Woman. However, David S. Goyer, who wrote "Man of Steel" and its follow-up and is producing NBC’s "Constantine", says it may be a little too soon to plot such a tightly interconnected DC Cinematic Universe. “I mean, it’s too early. I know that Warner Bros. would love to make their universe more cohesive,” he tells IGN. “There have been a lot of general conversations about that, but it’s really, »

Deadline reports that Justin Marks (Jon Favreau's Jungle Book) has been tasked by Warner Bros. to pen the screenplay for a big screen adaptation of Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics, based on a treatment by comic book creator Simon Oliver. David Goyer and Jon Berg will produce, and as well as penning Suicide Squad for the studio, Marks was also responsible for adapting Green Arrow: Escape from Supermax for them. The plot of the comic book (originally titled Collider) is as follows: Wormholes in your kitchen. Gravity failures at school. Quantum tornadoes tearing through the midwest. As with all natural disasters, people do what they always do: They adapt and survive. And if things get really bad, the Federal Bureau of Physics (Fbp) is only a call away. "Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics" is the story of Adam Hardy: Young, brash and smart, he's a rising star at the Fbp, »
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman. Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, »
Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics is an American comic book series by Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez, distributed by Vertigo Comics. Fbp imagines a world where disturbances in the laws of physics are as common as weather, and necessitate forecasts about wormhole locations, momentary gravity losses, and entropy reversals. With much fanfare, the government creates a new bureaucratic organization to deal with quantum disturbances, the Federal Bureau of Physics. The story follows special agent Adam Hardy as he deals with internal departmental battles and increasingly dangerous and radical quantum disasters. Warner Bros. are developing a film verison of Fbp with Justin Marks penning the script and David S. Goyer and Nellie Reed producing. What are your thoughts on this Project? »
The comic series centers on the Fbp, or the Federal Bureau of Physics, a group formed in a world where quantum disturbances happen all the time and must be dealt with.
Marks wrote Jungle Book for Disney, which is to be directed by Jon Favreau and set for release on October 9, 2015. He also wrote 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Captain Nemo, and adapted Suicide Squad for Dan Lin and Warners.

David S. Goyer is the screenwriter of the “Blade” trilogy, Christopher Nolan's Batman films and now Zack Snyder's Superman/DC series, and you could make a decent case that he's therefore the single most important influence on the modern superhero movie, more even than the directors he has worked for, even if in the wider world he's barely famous enough to be mistaken for Stanley Tucci.Recently he's been talking up further plans for the DC universe and the way his work interacts with fan expectations, but a couple of weeks ago he also gave a more general talk at BAFTA about his career path and the screenwriting trade. Starting at the beginning with his (eventually successful) harassment of an agent when he was still in college, with one script to his name, then working through the slog of crappy Jean-Claude van Damme movies (“One day you'll write »

Since Man of Steel kicked off Warner Bros.' very own "Cinematic Universe," there's been countless chatter about where they will be going in the future and how they might tie into the on-going DC-based shows on The CW. Nothing has been made official, and according to David Goyer, WB isn't sure themselves. "I know that Warner Bros. would love to make their universe more cohesive," he said in an interview with IGN when asked about connecting the films and TV shows. "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 »
David Goyer has insisted that it is "too early" to discuss potential crossovers between DC's movies and TV series.
Comics fans have speculated that television projects such as Arrow and Batman prequel Gotham could link into DC's big-screen blockbusters, such as the upcoming Batman vs Superman film.
Goyer - who is penning the Man of Steel sequel - told IGN 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, [so] I'm not sure," he said.
"Marvel has had enormous success, but I'm not sure that everybody should try to emulate them either. It's just been vague conversations so far."
However, Goyer added that he does "admire" Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which links the comic giant's cinematic outings to TV shows such as Agents of Shield.
"It's really hard to create a brand... because there's not »
While the general consensus at the moment seems to be ‘Marvel yay, DC nay’ as far as superhero movies are concerned, it’s important to remember that Warner Bros and DC do have something to show for their superhero catalogue. Granted, it’s mostly Batman, but it’s also a case of quality over quantity – while Marvel churn out endless films from here to eternity, not one has matched the sheer brilliance of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
And then there’s Arrow, The Flash, Gotham and of course, the upcoming Batman Vs Superman. The question on everyone’s lips by this point is: will they all exist in the same universe? IGN asked Man Of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer that very question, and this is what he had to say about the DC Cinematic Universe:
I mean, it’s too early. I know that Warner Bros. would love »

Earlier this week, Marvel Studios officially announced the release of Captain America 3, confirming that the currently-untitled superhero sequel will hit cinemas on May 6th, 2016 – the exact same date as another currently-untitled superhero sequel in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman.
Well, it seems that Marvel isn’t the only one refusing to budge, with Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman telling Bloomberg that: “It doesn’t make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and May 6th 2016. However, at this time, we are not considering a change of date for Batman vs. Superman.”

DC are working hard. After the phenomenal success of The Dark Knight Trilogy, their Superman re-boot, Man Of Steel, soared at the box office. Inevitably, audiences and commentators began to look at their long term plans – and compare them with their closest rival, Marvel. Such comparisons are understandable – both have a stable of iconic superheroes to draw upon. However, while DC have been in the superhero movie business for decades, Marvel have managed to create a large-scale cohesive universe – incorporating film and TV – in less than 10 years. Clearly, all future DC plans are shrouded in secrecy. But, if there is a person to ask, David Goyer is that person.
The writer’s penmanship is stamped on every film in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. He also wrote the story and screenplay for Man Of Steel, the story for Batman vs. Superman, and will write the screenplay for the Justice League movie. »
