Has David S Goyer been hired to write a new Superman film?

According to the Lation Review screenwriter David Goyer worked on such films as Blade,Blade II, Batman Begins, Dark Knight and many more has apparently signed on to script a new Superman film, rumoured to be called The Man of Steel.

Apparently the story will feature Luther and Braniac as the main bad guys and will not be an origin story(thank the lord) to quote the Latino Review themselves.

I can tell you that Goyer’s story involves Luthor and Brainiac.  It is NOT an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry.  I know the Daily Planet is struggling due to the internet.  And I know it sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.

Of course I’ve not seen this confirmed anywhere else so don’t take this news as gospel just yet.

I was one of the few people that despite it’s flaws, which become clearer on repeat viewings, really enjoyed Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns. The big mistake I felt he made was that we didn’t need a remake of Superman the movie. We wanted  a new story with the Man of Steel with a more a larger threat for him to deal with rather than ‘Is that my kid or not’ or ‘Why doesn’t she love me anymore’

Fingers crossed we’ll get this with a new film.
