BATMAN v SUPERMAN And JUSTICE LEAGUE Scribe Has Reportedly Rewritten THE BATMAN
With Ben Affleck deciding to step down as the director of The Batman, it now appears as if the filmmaker has also decided to take a step back in terms of serving as the movie's co-writer as well...
We've known for a while now that Ben Affleck was writing The Batman alongside Geoff Johns, but Deadline reports that screenwriter Chris Terrio has just completed a rewrite of that original script.
That makes sense considering the fact that neither of the movie's original scribes are first and foremost movie writers and despite the mixed response to Batman v Superman, Warner Bros. clearly has faith in Terrio following his work on Justice League.
