Goyer Talks Magneto, Super Max, and Others

Wizard's got the goods.

Some of his projects have been more warmly received than others (The Invisible, anyone?), but there’s no arguing the fact that David S. Goyer is a person of great interest to the fanboy faithful, which is why we just know you’re going to want to read his exclusive interview with Wizard!

Goyer’s got a number of interesting projects in the pipeline, including the upcoming X-Men spinoff Magneto, the adaptation of Steven Gould’s book Jumper, a sequel to The Invisible Man, possibly directing an episode of Heroes: Origins, the much-discussed Green Arrow movie Super Max, and a potential return to comics.

It’s Magneto and Super Max that fans probably want to know about the most, and they’ll be happy to hear that development is moving along on both fronts. Goyer tells Wizard he’s “scouting and budgeting” for Magneto now, that the production is “sort of halfway crewed up,” and that most of the film will take place in Europe and Argentina. The main question surrounding the project, according to Goyer, is whether the filmmakers and the studio can agree on a budget.

As far as Super Max goes, Goyer says Justin Marks’ screenplay hasn’t been officially delivered yet, but he does reveal that the script — which will find Green Arrow wrongfully sent to a prison for supervillains — will include a lot of what he refers to as “third-tier DC villains,” including Icicle. After promising that “people will recognize most of them,” he tells Wizard:

What we did was present to DC a list of people we wanted, and then they went through it on a case-by-case basis and told us whether we could have them or not.

Tucked into all this news of comic-derived projects was a question about Goyer’s planned Invisible Man sequel — and his response contains a bit of information that should make some movie buffs cautiously optimistic:

I just spent about four hours typing out this idea and I had no idea if there was any project. So I had my agent inquire if Universal Studios was doing anything with it and it turned out they’ve been trying to develop an ‘Invisible Man’ thing for the last 10 years. They’re trying to redo some of their monster franchises like ‘The Creature From the Black Lagoon‘ and ‘Wolfman’ and things like that. They just couldn’t figure it out, and everyone said — without giving away the whole concept — ‘Wow, why didn’t we think about that?’

A Universal monster-movie revival is something that’s been proposed by some of our fellow Vine residents, and if — if — it’s done right, it could be an extremely cool idea. To read the rest of what Goyer had to say, click on through to the link below!
