Normally we'd expect Friday nights reserved for the likes of such run-off news as 'Space Jam 2,' but it seems NBC doesn't mind keeping its new 'Constantine' in the dark, so to speak. Welsh actor Matt Ryan has landed the title role in David Goyer's DC pilot for NBC, but what else have we learned about the demon fighting detective?

Late the other night we were shocked to learn that Warner Bros. and DC Comics had successfully negotiated the Batman prequel spinoff series 'Gotham' for a FOX order, compounding the existence of The CW's 'Arrow' and its potential 'Flash' spinoff, but it seems they weren't quite through yet. Classic DC supernatural hero John Constantine will conjure up his own NBC series as well, produced by David S. Goyer!

For those of you who haven't seen 'Man of Steel,' stop reading now -- unless, of course, spoilers are your thing.

For eagle-eyed fans, 'Man of Steel' is filled with all kinds of tiny easter eggs that suggest a larger universe. For starters, the Wayne Enterprises logo appears on a satellite, while the LexCorp logo can be spotted on a building and a few tanker trucks. In other words, should the opportunity arise, the new Superman movie is quietly laying the groundworks for a larger DC cinematic universe ... a universe that may include the superhero Cyborg, if we can believe everything screenwriter David S. Goyer says.

Though 'Man of Steel' won't be released until Friday, Warner Brothers is so confident in the film they just announced they've begun working on a sequel, and have already got screenwriter David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder lined up to return.

'Man of Steel' Featurette: Putting Superman in the "Real World"

by Jacob Hall May 30, 2013 @ 3:00 PM
The biggest problem facing 'Man of Steel' from the get-go was how to make Superman relatable to an audience who likes their heroes flawed and human. How can you possibly relate to a near-invincible being who can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes? Simple: you ground him in the real world and let the audience see him struggle with his enormous powers. But don't take our word for it -- an excellent new featurette goes into a little more detail.

We knew Leonardo Da Vinci to be brilliant, but talk about speedy! This past Friday saw Starz highest-rated debut to date with the David S. Goyer-penned 'Da Vinci's Demons,' and the edgy cable network has wasted no time in locking down the re-invented inventor for another season. 'Da Vinci's Demons' season 2 will officially bow in 2014, but will anything prove different from the first time around?

Though he hasn't had great luck with his own directing career, David Goyer has been one of the central masterminds behind the last fifteen years of superhero movies. Not only did he write all the 'Blade' movies, he worked on the scripts for Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' Trilogy and helped pen 'Man of Steel' (and came up with the story for the new 'Godzilla'). His latest gig is directing a new version of 'Count of Monte Cristo.'
