"Blade" Writer to Focus on the "Thor" Movie

Comic book genius David S. Goyer (he wrote the "Blade" trilogy and "Batman Begins") will be dusting off his computer and getting busy on Marvel's big-screen rendition of "Thor" -- in addition to the work he's already done on "Captain America" and "The Flash."

From Newsarama, by way of ComingSoon.net: "It was previously announced that the legendary Norse Thunder deity would hammer his way to the big screen with the help of screenwriter Mark Protosevich ("Poseidon," "The Cell"). It is unclear if Goyer is rewriting Protosevich's script or starting from scratch.

Thor is part of Marvel's independent production slate of feature films expected to be financed with Marvel's $525 million revolving film financing facility and distributed under the company's overall distribution arrangement with Paramount Pictures."

For Batman: Jonathan Nolan is writing the script. Goyer and Chris Nolan did the story.

I just hope Thor doesn't say- ("I say thee nay") It might get some unintentional laughter from the crowd.

Um... did they just refer to David Goyer as a "comic book genius"? He's a terrible writer! Even by comic book standards.

I don't really like the Blade movies, but Batman Begins is one of my favorite scripts. So many elements, perfectly balanced.

Never been a fan of Thor, but Goyer has some potential.

His work on "Blade", "Batman Begins", and "Dark City" certainly gain him credit as a legit writer, however he sure screwed up the last two Blade movies- especially the 3rd one. Ugh.

Thor should be a good one (Norse God, loses powers on Earth, ends up with a limp, Hammer that chooses who can pick it up, Dad is the main God, it almost writes itself), if we haven't got fed up of comic book movies by then.

How many are out in '08???? Capt America, Antman, Ironman, Batman/Dark Knight. By then trailers for spidey 4 and probably fantastic 4 number 3.
