Minor Spoilers

MTV got a chance to chat with The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer at the red carpet premiere of Man of Steel and asked him about the potential Justice League movie . We’ve all heard rumors that Goyer was writing Justice League, but nothing was substantial. As of now the he only thing that is certain is that Goyer is returning alongside director Zack Snyder for the Man of Steel sequel, which was fast-tracked  as we told you yesterday . But when asked if he was interested in Justice League he says:

“If I were offered it, I wouldn’t say no. Well, what are you going to do after Batman and Superman? How do you top yourself? I can’t go back to Metamorpho after this.”

When asked about what other Easter Eggs to look for in Man of Steel, Goyer says:

“We mentioned S.T.A.R. Labs one point, that’s kind of a connection to Cyborg.”

In The New 52, long-time Teen Titans member Cyborg is now one of the founding members of the Justice League. So with rumors everywhere about a potential Justice League film, is it really just a coincidence that there is an Easter Egg for Cyborg in Man of Steel?

For his last question they ask whether Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy could ever mesh with what Zack Snyder created in Man of Steel, Goyer seemingly puts that to rest:

“The Dark Knight films do not exist in the same universe. Zack [Snyder] has gone on record. The fact that we have Wayne Industries on the satellite, Bruce Wayne exists in this universe. Lex Luthor exists in this universe. Other metahumans do exist in this universe, so the hope is, depending on how the film does, that we’ll be able to roll into some other films.”

So let the Batman speculation casting begin!
