Goyer to the Max!

David Goyer is usually only as good as his director. So it’s highly unfortunate that he’s started directing his own scripts.

David Goyer is usually only as good as his director. So it's highly unfortunate that he's started directing his own scripts. Dark City and Batman Begins were gold, but there he had Alex Proyas and Christopher Nolan to guide. Now he's directing his own stuff, the end product has been pretty dire. Goyer is no doubt talented, but I think he's a writer first and foremost and not a director. Nevertheless, Hollywood seems to dig him and he's attached to direct Magneto and produce Super Max, the Green Arrow in prison movie written by Justin Marks. Wizard magazine caught up with the writer/director and he gave them the low down on Magneto:

"We€™re scouting and budgeting now. It€™s the origins of the X-Men with Magneto and Charles Xavier. We€™ve done some scouts and it mostly takes place in Europe and Argentina. We€™re doing budgets and we€™re sort of halfway crewed up, and so that€™ll be the big question: whether we can bring it in for a price. But that€™s all I can say."
And Super Max:
"We haven€™t even officially turned in a script for that yet. The idea is that they€™re mostly sort of third-tier DC villains, but that was part of the fun, that they€™re relatively obscure. But Icicle is in it from JSA€”from my days on writing that. I mean, people will recognize most of them. 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."
Both sound quite exciting projects, Magneto is the one X-Men spin-off I want to see, and Super-Max seems like a cool way to get some of the lesser known DC characters out there. source - Wizard
