Democracy 3

.

A democracy that lives within its means is a democracy. A democracy that spends more than it takes in in tax revenue is a nation of beggar and debtors.

Only countries that live within their means can be democracies. A country that lives on borrowed money like the U.S. cannot control its own destiny. That is in the hands of the worldwide bond market.

The Man of Steel, 3

.

During story discussions for The Dark Knight Rises in 2008, David S. Goyer, aware that Warner Bros. was planning a Superman reboot, told Christopher Nolan his idea on how to present Superman in a modern context. Impressed with Goyer’s concept, Nolan pitched the idea to the studio in February 2010, who hired Nolan to produce and Goyer to write based on the financial and critical success of The Dark Knight. Nolan admired Singer’s work on Superman Returns for its connection to Richard Donner’s version, and previously used the 1978 film as casting inspiration for Batman Begins. “They had [Marlon] Brando and Glenn Ford and Ned Beatty and all these fantastic actors in even small parts,” Nolan continued, “which was an exotic idea for a superhero movie at the time.”

The Man of Steel, 2

.

On February 24, 2010, it was announced that David S. Goyer is writing the script for a Superman film called The Man of Steel.

On March 10, 2010, Christopher Nolan himself confirmed that he and Goyer have been working on an idea for a Superman film. Nolan says, “He basically told me, ‘I have this thought about how you would approach Superman.’ I immediately got it, loved it and thought: That is a way of approaching the story I’ve never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get Emma [Thomas] and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way… A lot of people have approached Superman in a lot of different ways. I only know the way that has worked for us that’s what I know how to do.”
