8:00pm Legends Writing Legends: The Career of David Goyer image

From humble beginnings to Hollywood superstardom, David S. Goyer’s journey is as epic and heroic as the main characters he has been called upon to write. Superman (Man of Steel). Batman (The Dark Knight trilogy). Blade (Blade).

When one man is made responsible for the heroes that impacted a generation, how does he adjust and adapt to that level of responsibility? Do you dwell in the dark cave, maintaining a calm front? Or do you cry “Up, up, and away!” and allow your prose to soar?
