A forum member of Batman on Film has posted an excerpt of a Cinescape interview with David Goyer about writing Batman Begins. Here’s a clip…
“My whole life, that’s all I wanted to do was write a Batman movie,” says Goyer. “It was excruciating for me because here I was being offered to work with an amazing director, but time-wise there was no way I could do it. But his agent called back and said, ‘You have to do it.'” By negotiating to only do a first draft, with Nolan rewriting and revising from there, Goyer got his dream and the result is a Batman movie the writer thinks fans are going to eat up. “It’s the most faithful to the comic books and it certainly darker than the Schumacher films,” admits Goyerâ€¦ “It treats the story seriously and it’s also quite romantic. We were determined to create a new classic and we treated the subject matter seriously.”

Well, all I can say is that yes, I have read the script, yes, I have flown to London several times to talk with Chris about things, and yes, I will probably be going back there very very soon to discuss things further… But I have not been cast in the film, and all the talk on the internet about the script or what have you is way off base. I mean, this is a huge movie, with a lot at stake, so these guys made sure to think out every possible scenario when it came to potential script leaks, etcetera, and they came up with a fool proof plan – one that no other film has gone to the trouble or expense to work out in advance. And, because of that, they have the world eating out of their hands right now. I mean, they haven’t allowed anybody to spoil anything for their audience, which seems to consist of millions of folks who really really care about “Batman” and this film. And I mean that. You shouldn’t believe what you read, and I don’t care which so-called “Batman” expert has said what or will say what. They are dead wrong about ninety nine percent of it all.
