Jeff Goldsmith Speaks With David S. Goyer At SDCC

On Saturday, July 25 at 11a.m. (PST) Comic-Con will release the interview, which focuses on David’s career and writing habits—and of course provides insight into some of the most talked about moments in his films!

The first half of the interview is spoiler-free, and then we get into his spoiler-specific thoughts regarding:

-Adding realism to Bruce Wayne by filling in the 7-year gap in his history in Batman Begins

Ra’s Al Ghul’s death at the end of Batman Begins

Constructing the father/son tornado sequence in Man of Steel

-Creating the memorable ending of Man of Steel in which for the first time ever Superman kills one of his foes.

-Plus there’s a very personal message from David on how important it is for us to do our best at social distancing and mask-wearing and how the pandemic has affected his family.

The 56-minute interview posts on Comic-Con @ Home page here and then a few hours later will be available on the Backstory Magazine YouTube page (why, yes we are putting our “Zoomcast” interviews there now).

Of course, if you’d rather hear it, a few hours after the Comic-Con debut you can find it in “The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith” podcast on iTunes or Spotify.
