IAmRogue spoke with the writer and asked Goyer's thoughts on not choosing to include Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel.

"I don’t think anyone has every confirmed that we haven’t included him," Goyer said while grinning.

There's also bee some online fan controversy surrounding the casting of Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, as well as there possibly being the inclusion of Jenny Olsen, ousting long-time Superman friend, Jimmy.

On Laurence Fishburne, Goyer offers that you just need to use the best actor.

"I thought it was an awesome choice. I think that it is silly that people are like, 'You can’t have a black guy named White.' But I’m like, well what about Barry White? I thought that was stupid. You just want to get the best actor," Goyer said.

And on Jenny Olsen? Of course, Goyer won't say.

"I can’t comment on that," David Goyer replied.
