American scriptwriter and producer Akiva Goldsman, who wrote the scripts of important films such as I Am Legend, The Da Vinci Code, A Beautiful Mind, made statements about the movie Batman vs Superman, whose preparations were made but were later canceled.
Akiva Goldsman, the director of Joel Schumacher, who wrote the 1995 movie Batman Forever and 1997, Batman & Robin, said that they started making Batman vs Superman movie in the early 2000s, but it was canceled because the story did not progress as they expected.

The script was later handled by Akiva Goldsman.
Akiva Goldsman: “It Will Be The Darkest Movie You Can See”
“Wolfgang Petersen was directing the movie, and it would be the darkest thing you could see. The story began with Alfred’s funeral and Bruce Wayne ceased to fall in love with a woman and become Batman. Bruce falls in love, gives up being Batman, Joker kills his wife, and Bruce discovers that it’s all a lie. This love was designed by the Joker to break it down. It was a period when you could bring such stories together in the script but there was no response in the world. It did not meet the expectations of the audience, the company, or the regime in this regard, as we imagine when we put it on our pages. ”
Speaking about World’s Finest Comics, Goldsman, who compared his own Batman vs Superman project to Golden Age comics, said, “The World’s Finest was a really dark and interesting genre. It could have been a really good story. On the other hand, I was never upset that Superman with Nick Cage did not become a reality. I think there were gains and losses to be avoided during this time. ” made their explanations.
Later, a movie about Batman and Superman was released in 2016 under the name Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Directed by Zack Snyder; The film, with names such as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Jesse Eisenberg, earned $ 873 million worldwide, but could not meet expectations.
