David S. Goyer On MAN OF STEEL 2, Lex Luthor, Clark's Disguise & More

In yet another interview with the Man Of Steel writer, Goyer discusses the direction the sequel might go in, what incarnation of Lex Luthor we can expect to see, and how they plan on tackling Clark Kent's "ludicrous" civilian disguise. Warning, there are MOS SPOILERS ahead..

We've heard quite a bit from Goyer about how WB's future DC movie slate might shape up now that Man Of Steel has laid the groundwork, but while speaking to Bleeding Cool about the now officially planned sequel to that film, the writer gives a few interesting hints on how Kal-El's story could progress. It seems to be pretty much a given that we will see Lex Luthor in the next movie, and Goyer also touches on that..teasing a very different "Bill Gates-like Lex". And finally he addresses the question of how Clark Kent's basic disguise will work in future movies now that he works at the Daily Planet, and has donned those glasses!



On the challenges of depicting Superman in the modern world in a sequel:

"To me, the interesting challenge is “Could he solve hunger in the horn of Africa? What would he do with the Arab Spring? What would he do in Syria?” Partly you could argue “How could he not intervene in something like the situation in Syria?” but the other argument is “Is it a hornet’s nest if her intervenes? Does he have the wherewithal or the knowledge to intervene in something like this?”


On the version of Lex Luthor we'll likely see:

"There is musing about Lex Luther, conversations that Zack and I have had on set, but it all depends on what happens over the next month. There are obviously those Lexcorp easter eggs in the film and clearly you can see from that, to the extent to which we can intuit things about Lex, it’s not the Gene Hackman version. This is a Bill Gates-like Lex that is probably worth 50, 60, 70 billion dollars. It’s a very different Lex."


On using the old-school disguise:

"We were able to sidestep the issue of the ludicrous glasses disguise in this film but going forwards, we’re going to find ourselves in a sticky wicket. Zack and I have definitely talked about “Okay, hmm, this will be interesting.” Clearly Perry White and Steve Lombard see Lois kissing Superman at the end of the film. Perry’s not an idiot. Moving forward, he’s probably going to say to Lois “What’s up with that?” We’re definitely going to have to go through some story gymnastics."
