Bleeding Cool spoke with Goyer, who talked about his three-picture deal. And, of interest to us all, how "Man Of Steel" influences what's to come.
It is our intention that, in success, this would be the zero issue and from this point onward, possible films could expand into a shared universe. In our world, the Man of Steel world, Zack has gone on record saying that we’re implying there are other superheroes in this world. But I don’t know that they’ve come forward yet. The idea is that Superman is the first one. There might be people helping people, but not in costumes, and that Superman comes forward and announces himself to the world. In him announcing himself, he’s the one that changes things.So, Superman revealing himself is the issue #0 event that starts the ball rolling for other super powered beings and meta-humans to come forward? Like a certain one-eyed philosopher once said:
You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr. Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet.
