No way... David S. Goyer to write Superman: The Man of Steel?!

Holy mother of Mary... this is a big deal to me. David S. Goyer, the man who helped Christopher Nolan create a new Batman for a new generation, is set to write the next Superman film for Warner Brothers.

Latino Review first reported the news, with a few plot points as well. This tells me, it's been a work-in-progress for awhile. Here's a few things Latino Review knows:

Lex Luthor AND Brainiac are the primary villains.

Brandon Routh will not star, and Bryan Singer will not return to direct.

It will indeed be called The Man of Steel, not Superman...

No origin story here, just fun filled action that is believable to our times.

That last point is very important. The previous Singer incarnation was too light for our times, especially with what's going on in our world. We need dark, we need more action out of a Superman film. I'm so excited about this news, as Goyer is a bit of a Comic book nerd like myself. What do you guys thinks? Let us know.

Quickie: The Karate Kid trailer 2

This movie looks good, I don't care what anyone thinks about it being a pointless remake... check it out.

You know what's a good movie? (Part 3) The Incredibles

To recap, Tonedog and I thought it would be a cool idea to try a six degrees of separation type game. We'll talk about a good movie, then find a common actor, director, plot, etc., and then move on to the next movie.

In the last installment of "YKWaGM?" Tonedog talked about Toy Story.
Today, I'm going to tie that in with a few common themes with The Incredibles, number one obviously being animation, and number two, Pixar.

Disney distributed Pixar's The Incredibles in 2004, roughly 10 years after Pixar's smash hit Toy Story. This film is easily one of my favorite animated features of all time, and includes an all-star cast including Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee, Sarah Vowell and Brad Bird.
