Quotes

  • On a possible Blade reboot: "I do. Now that Marvel/Disney have recaptured the rights, I’m sure it will be [remade]. They made too much money on that character to not reboot him at some point... I mean, look, between merchandise and what not, that little character generated almost a billion dollars."
  • On his Magneto script being used in X-Men: First Class: "It did. It did. It was sort of that but expanded. I was a little bummed. They definitely took some elements from our script..."

Trivia

  • Goyer also worked on a number of DC Comics properties including The Dark Knight trilogy.
