Has Batman 3 Finally Gotten off its Ass and Back to Work?

David Goyer has been one of the “behind-the-scenes” guys of the “Batman Begins” franchise since the very beginning, having scripted/contributed story ideas to the first two movies. He’s also expected back for the third one, and if this article over at Deadline is to be believed, Goyer has left his post as the showrunner of ABC’s faltering sci-fi show “Flash Forward” to start developing a script for the third Batman film with director Christopher Nolan’s brother, Johnathan Nolan, who has worked on his brother’s films “Memento”, “The Prestige”, and “The Dark Knight”.

Then again, this sounds a bit like speculation. Maybe Goyer just got tired of TV and wanted back in feature work. Maybe he really is working on a Batman 3 with the other Nolan. Either way, this is the first really decent Batman 3 story in a while, so just go with it.

Screw this, I'm going to go write Batman 3. Hasta la vista, losers!
