Despite Making Movies About Every Single Character on Their Roster, David Goyer Says It's Too Early for Cohesive DC Movieverse
DC movie mogul David Goyer may be making movies about pretty much every DC character ever created, but don't expect those movies to fit together well, because Goyer gave an interview to IGN yesterday where he said it's too early to try to build a cohesive (read: Marvel-like) DC Cinematic Universe:
I mean, it's too early. I know 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. I'm not sure. 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.
Just to be clear, this is the guy who made the Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Superman vs. Batman, that will feature most of the Justice League, an actual Justice League movie, a possible Green Lantern movie, Sandman, and a Constantine TV series. But he's barely even given thought to making them fit together in any way.
In fact, he doesn't seem to give anything much thought:
IGN: I love Sandman. How are you planning to crack that?
Goyer: We'll see. It's tricky. There's a reason why it hasn't been adapted for 15, 16 years. It's really dense and wonderful. Neil is a genius and cerebral. We're just getting into that right now. We'll see.
IGN: Sandman always felt like it would make sense as a TV series. Was that an approach you considered?
Goyer: I think people have tried before. Honestly, it just happened that Warner Bros. asked me if I'd take a crack at it, and I was not sure. We're just getting into it now...
Just wingin' it, bro! Relax! Make a Sandman movie? Sure, why not! YOLO!
Oh, Time Warner media companies. Never change.
