What Do Superman & Batman Have To Do with DaVinci?

Published on NewsOK Published: January 5, 2013

Writer David S. Goyer, who helped reboot Batman with Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and Superman with June's Man of Steel, tackles another iconic figure this April with the premiere of Starz's DaVinci's Demons. A period piece that attempts to illuminate the man behind The Mona Lisa. And The Last Supper. And the majority of modern day museum's most trafficked items.

The appeal for Goyer was that while DaVinci's contributions to society are vast, he loved that most people, when pressed, actually knew very little about this Renaissance polymath. "I want audiences to come away with an understanding that this guy wasn't just the guy who painted The Last Supper and The Mona Lisa. Despite having a demigod status, he was a human being," Goyer told ETonline at The Television Critics Association gathering in Pasadena, CA today. "We don't think about him as a complicated and flawed human being who had a lot of personal demons."
