Writer-director David Goyer brings some disturbing news for comic film fans. Over at IESB.net, Goyer related the following:
“A lot of the DC movies at Warner Brothers are all on hold while the figure out, they’re going to come up with some new plan, methodology, things like that so everything has just been pressed pause on at the moment. It was the double header of both Iron Man and The Dark Knight coming out, so more than ever I think they’ve realized, I think DC was responsible for 15% of Warner Brother’s revenue this year, something crazy like that, so they realized that comic books, it’s become a new genre, one of the most successful genres.”
As Blog@ covered yesterday, screenwriter John August addressed the derailing of the Shazam! film at his blog. Between that and the sandbagging of the nearly-made-it-to-shooting Justice League film, it looks like DC live-action films will be having a substantial break.
Goyer’s new horror film, The Unborn, opens this weekend.
