According to recent comments made by X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner, Magneto's solo venture is far from becoming a reality. She said that, while Goyer's script is "brilliant," the chances of the movie actually making it to theaters are dwindling. Apparently it's the lowest rung of an X-Men ladder that already consists of a Wolverine sequel, a Deadpool spin off and anX-Men: First Class origin story.

Scribe David Goyer has an abundance of prospective comic book movies on his agenda including Ghost Rider 2, Supermax(the Green Arrow version) and a fan awaited sequel to The Dark Knight. Not to mention the ABC TV series Flashforward that he is overseeing. So what is his take on the Magneto Origins movie he wrote the script for?

In an interview with MTV News, Goyer said "I tend to agree with her, [Fox is] still trying to figure out what they want to do, whether or not they'll do a different 'X-Men' movie next or another 'Wolverine' movie next. If they want to make 'Magneto,' that's awesome. In the meantime, I'm just going to move on with my other projects."

If the Magneto movie was pushed up on the Fox agenda, would Goyer mind the studio involving another writer? "Even taking 'FlashForward' aside, I'm booked up for another year and a half," he said. "I have no complaints."
