‘Man of Steel’ Alternate Ending Had Different Outcome for Superman and Zod Fight, Screenwriter David Goyer Reveals

The ending of Man of Steel may go down as one of the most polarizing comic book movie endings. The 2013 film directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer offered a freshly realistic (read: grim) take on Superman, with a final battle scene that was a marked departure from the typically non-lethal superhero. But the infamous battle between Superman and Zod almost went in a different direction, Goyer revealed, describing a Man of Steel alternate ending that may have been a little less con...

‘The Sandman’ Netflix Series Will Be Updated to Take Place in 2021

When The Sandman was initially published in 1989, Neil Gaiman‘s horror-fantasy comic series was praised as a groundbreaking piece of art, aided by the surreal and often unnerving illustrations by Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, Jill Thompson, Shawn McManus, Marc Hempel, and Michael Zulli. The story of the anthropomorphic personification of Dream as he returns to his realm after a decades-long imprisonment was striking in its blending of reality and fantasy — and a fair few DC characters, beloved a...

Get a First Glimpse of Foundation, the New TV Series Being Adapted from Isaac Asimov’s Iconic Series of Novels

Five years ago we told you about the plans to create a mini-series out of Isaac Asimov’s classic sci-fi series Foundation, while also pointing you in the direction of the 1973 BBC radio dramatization.

‘Hellraiser’ Remake Will Be Summoned by David S. Goyer

David S. Goyer has such sights to show you. Like a Hellraiser remake. The Batman Begins screenwriter will write and produce a remake of Clive Barker‘s horror classic, marking the end of a very long journey to reboot the gore-drenched franchise. Barker’s original, released in 1987, centered on a puzzle box with the power to unleash demonic deviants from another dimension. It would go on to spawn many sequels, most of which were downright terrible. Hollywood has been trying to summon a Hellrai...
