Batman Begins Writer David S. Goyer Reveals His Opinion on The Batman

Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson reinvented the Dark Knight for the big screen earlier this year, with the debut of the acclaimed DC film The Batman. With Pattinson taking on the role of Bruce Wayne, Reeves aimed to tell a kind of Batman story that hadn't been seen in movies before, focusing on the character's skills as a detective and having him track down a terrifying serial killer. It was a massive departure from the Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder takes on Batman, but it was met with love from both critics and fans, as well as success at the box office.

‘Foundation’ Boss David S. Goyer Breaks Down ‘Interrogating a Post-9/11 World’ in His Apple TV Plus Adaptation

Writer-director David S. Goyer is certainly no stranger to translating beloved, larger-than-life properties to life on screen, from the superheroic (including Marvel’s “Blade” franchise and DC’s “Dark Knight” trilogy) to science fiction (“Terminator: Dark Fate” and “FlashForward”) to supernaturally mythic tales (the forthcoming “Sandman” streaming series). But Goyer had yet to face a task as challenging as unifying the epic, thousand-year vision embodying sci-fi novelist Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation” series, which spans across seven books collecting stories written over the course of five decades (as well as direct tie-ins to two of Asimov’s other beloved works, the “Empire” and “Robot” franchises). “Foundation”...
