David Goyer Talks More Flash

Former The Flash writer/director David Goyer has posted another note about the project and more on his official Blog. He also mentions that one of his upcoming projects is in the DC Universe:

Attempted to post a bit more about The Flash and it appears to have disappeared. Well, in any event, just wanted to say thanks to all of you who’ve expressed their regrets, etc.

To be honest, when WB first approached me about doing The Flash, it seemed a little too good to be true. A part of me thought they’d never really make a movie like that. For the record, the script did involve both Barry and Wally as The Flash. I wanted to showcase the legacy aspect of the hero — as that was something that hadn’t been explored yet in film. Like Batman Begins, the script drew on some seminal comicbook runs (Mike Baron, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns).

There have been other super-hero scripts of mine that fell by the wayside. An R-rated Ghost Rider script that Stephen Norrington was going to direct. A horror-centric Doctor Strange script for Sony (which portrayed Mordo and Dormammu in a very Lovecraftian light). Even a pretty crappy Venom/Carnage script that I got roped into writing for New Line!

Andy Walkers script for Batman/Superman was great. And I’m sure Whedon’s Wonder Woman is pretty damn cool as well.

The truth is, I’ve had a remarkably good track record with these kinds of films so far, so I don’t have a lot to complain about. My peers and I are well-compensated for what we do. We’re essentially living the dream we’d envisioned when we were kids. Now we get to meet and work with people we viewed as roll models and heroes.

Just the other day I had lunch with Wendy & Richard Pini, the creators of Elfquest. (And I can remember buying their very first issue back in 1978 when I was just thirteen). I got to have dinner with Neal Adams before the Batman Begins premiere. Work with the likes of Stan Lee and Mike Mignola.

In the coming weeks I’ll post a bit more on the projects I’ve been working on since the Flash’s demise. (One of them takes place in the DC Universe.) Until then…
