Justice League Script Is Ready With Chris Terrio As Writer

Shares

The new Entertainment Weekly issue has many goodies coming out of the woodwork. I do hope all these surprises aren’t spoiling what Warner Bros. and DC have planned for San Diego Comic Con, but knowing them, this is a taste of what’s to come.

When Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was rewritten by Chris Terrio and started shooting it was reported that the reason the year-long delay was due to them shooting Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League back-to-back as Chris Terrio, the new writer had also signed on to write that film, although never confirmed at the time.

Well apparently its all kind of true, while Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is not shooting back-to-back with Justice League, it is expected that Justice League: Part 1 will shoot back-to-back with Justice League: Part 2 and all three have been written by Chris Terrio, while Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was rewritten by Chris Terrio but still based on David Goyer’s story.

The Justice League films are more than likely all Chris Terrio, as I believe David Goyer only went as far as story ideas but not writing it yet, let’s keep in mind if they do still use some of David Goyer’s ideas he can still receive a Story credit.

Zack Snyder had something to say as he and Chris Terrio worked on the two-part epic, which probably looks the way Mario Puzo’s Superman story was in 1975-1978.

Snyder and Chris Terrio the Argo screenwriter who was brought on to Batman v Superman for a rewrite and who has since finished the Justice League script –locked themselves in a room with an enormous supply of Diet Coke and plotted out their epic sag visually, like a giant cave painting. “Chris would talk and I would draw it and it was basically this weird mural of the movies with no words,” said Snyder. Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is noted as one of the influences on their plot.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    I’ve been waiting for this news for a while. I cannot believe we’re getting a JL movie.

    They “locked themselves in a room with an enormous supply of Diet Coke and plotted out their epic sag visually, like a giant cave painting. “Chris would talk and I would draw it and it was basically this weird mural of the movies with no words,” said Snyder.”

    This sounds awesome as hell!

      Hell yes! I’m so excited for a Justice League film. If the script is ready then that means they will start filming at the end of this year, early next year right?! RIGHT?!

      • That’s a good question, as Wonder Woman is said to start filming in the Fall of this year.

        • KelVintage

          I am very curious to see when they start since Justice League Part 1 and Part 2 are filming back to back which certainly means that it will be a long shoot and the actors will keep working on and off. Over six months?

        In the article, Snyder said after the release of BvS! 😀

        • KelVintage

          Hell yes! Momoa and Miller are just sitting around chomping at the bit I’m sure.

  • Ashraf Anam

    Zack Snyder co-writing…NO, please no! Why can’t he just be the director?

  • Drunk_Kent

    Two geniuses at work. Shame BvS got bad cred to begin with, due to the failing of MoS. The problem with Goyer is his very hit and miss, you had epics like The dark knight but you had rubbish like blade trinity, hopefully with terrio and snyder together you will get a story that has something init for all and something which will be epic
