LONDON -- Super heroes don't bow to fan pressure -- that's according to screenwriter David S. Goyer, who is co-writing the new "Batman vs. Superman" movie.
He's currently working on the script for the upcoming comic book character showdown with director Zach Snyder.
Goyer says "if I try to think about 'well, what would the fans like...?' then you stop being creative."
He worked on the "Dark Knight" trilogy and has the "Man of Steel" screenplay under his belt, so he's used to doing battle with popular opinion.
And "Batman vs. Superman" has already faced an online backlash after the casting of Ben Affleck as the caped crusader. Co-star Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent from "Man of Steel."
"Batman vs. Superman" is set for a summer 2015 release.
