With Ben Affleck no longer directing the solo Batman movie (guess he finally watched Live by Night, huh?), the search is on for a new director to take his place. Amid various reports regarding Affleck’s exit from the director’s chair was an interesting tidbit of news you might have missed: The screenplay for The Batman, penned by Affleck with DC’s own Geoff Johns, received a rewrite from Chris Terrio.
Most of the build-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has focused on star Ben Affleck and his new version of Batman, the introduction of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to the DC Movie Universe, and the direction of Zack Snyder. There hasn’t been a ton written about or with Chris Terrio, the film’s co-screenwriter who won an Oscar for his work on the script for Affleck’s Argo. But in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, Terrio discussed his work on the film, and on the larger series of DC movies he’s contributing to.
We found out a while back that 'Batman v Superman' writer and Ben Affleck pal Chris Terrio would be penning the screenplay for Warner Bros.' upcoming 'Justice League' film, and today comes some potential news about that project and its central villain. Who might DC's superhero super-team be facing off with in Zack Snyder's 'Justice League'?
Although we won't see the official 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' panel at Comic-Con 2014 until tomorrow, we do have a bit of early news regarding the Warner Bros. and DC movie universe: 'Batman v Superman' writer Chris Terrio has been set to write the script for Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' movie. Big surprise, right?
