Ben Affleck asked ‘Batman vs. Superman ‘to rewrite, reveals screenwriter

Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ saga, Joss Whedon’s version and ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ release would make for an incredible documentary book, and now is the time for screenwriter Chris Terrio to give his side of the story.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Terrio opened up about his involvement with “ BvS ” and “ Justice League ” and, during the chat, opened up about meeting star Ben Affleck to help him rewrite the story of the 2016 film to give it away. greater depth.

“Ben called me and told me he was working on this movie, which was a Superman movie that he would play Batman in. Then he asked me if I could read the script and consider a rewrite. He asked me if I would do more work on the character arcs. So it was already determined and preestablished that Batman would try to kill Superman and he would have a very dark arc. He was plotting criminals and he would have obscure elements that were not negotiable and were already in history ”.

He also spoke about the desire to create a story that audiences believe in Batman’s downfall, comparing him to Captain Ahab from the classic novel “Moby Dick” and that he was “traumatized by the Krypton War on Earth.”

As if that weren’t enough, Terrio also said he didn’t like the title chosen for ‘Batman vs Superman,’ saying he didn’t choose it and how he would like the feature to be called. .

“I wrote the sketches for the movie Batman / Superman, which was not called ‘Batman vs Superman: The Awakening of Justice’ by me. I did not name the script. I actually found out what the movie was called with the rest of the world on the internet. I was not consulted on the title of the film and I was as surprised as anyone. I wouldn’t have called it “Batman vs. Superman: Awakening Justice,” “Terrio confirmed to Vanity Fair.

He added, “I’m not sure who named him exactly, but I suspect it was the studio and I suspect it was marketing, to be honest with you. This may have been the first step in creating ill will for the film. I suspect that putting the words “Batman” and “Superman” in the title had a marketing component. “

Terrio claims studio executives ordered 30 minutes of the film to be cut from the final edition, sabotaging the production narrative – which was ultimately responsible for many negative reviews.

“If you took out 30 minutes from ‘Argo,’ like they did in ‘Batman vs. Superman: Origin of Justice,’ it wouldn’t make sense. Critics would say, “What a lazy storyline,” as the characters would have no motivation and would not be cohesive. And I totally agree with them, ”says the screenwriter.

In Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’, determined to ensure that Superman’s (Henry Cavill) final sacrifice is not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) teams up with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with the intention of recruit a team of metahumans to protect. the world facing an imminent threat of catastrophic proportions. The task is more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face off against demons from their own past to transcend what stood in their way, allowing them to unite and ultimately form an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their terrible intentions. “.
