Goyer: Too early for DC universe

David S Goyer has said Warner Bros is in no hurry to bring together the DC Comic universe in spin-off movies and TV shows.

The Dark Knight writer has co-written the script for the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie with director Zack Snyder. But talking to IGN he said there was no rush to emulate Marvel's route of overlapping different comic characters as it has in the Avengers movies and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Goyer said: "It's too early. I know that Warner Bros would love to make their universe more cohesive. There have been a lot of general conversations about that, but it's really, really early. I'm not sure.

"Marvel has had enormous success, but I'm not sure that everybody should try to emulate them either. It's just been vague conversations so far."

The writer even said he was not following what Marvel has been doing that closely.

He said: "I know this is going to sound cheap, but I don't really. There's just our approach to how we want to tell a story, and hopefully we can convince Warner Bros or whatnot of that. We don't sit in a room with cigars and say, 'Look at what these guys are doing!' It doesn't work that way. I don't know."

And though Goyer has been part of bringing Batman and Superman together on screen, with Wonder Woman making an appearance, he revealed he is keen to do something different next, rather than push towards a Justice League movie.

He said: "Look, we've been pretty lucky with the films we've done so far. I think right now it's just kind of, 'More of the same, please.' I'm trying to branch off with Sandman."
