Earlier today, we reported that Warner Bros. is interested in Joaquin Phoenix playing the villain in their upcoming superhero sequel, Batman vs. Superman.  While much of the casting has yet to be finalized, we now have word of another screenwriter joining the behind-the-scenes mix in Oscar-winner Chris Terrio (Argo).  David S. Goyer penned the first draft of the film that finds Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman, with Ben Affleck starring as an older, weathered Batman and Gal Gadot stepping into the shoes of Wonder Woman.  Terrio, who has a strong relationship with Affeck, has brought in to clean up the script before production gets underway.  Hit the jump for more.

As THR reports, ben-affleck-chris-terrioWarner Bros. is bringing in the Oscar-winning talent of Terrio to shore up the Batman vs. Superman script.  Goyer is currently busy tending to other DC Comics titles, including the resurgent adaptation of Sandman. Terrio and Affleck previously collaborated on Argo, which earned an Oscar for Best Motion Picture and Best Writing of an Adapted Screenplay.

    Great news!!!

    • NOT bombinUSA

      That’s not great news, you know what would be great news? If i found a Trayvon Martin impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like CORN! LULZ! ;-).

        Wasn’t funny the first hundred times.

        I hope you find someone patient to spend the rest of their life with you, someone who can tolerate your awful, abortion-fueling humor.

  • Thomas K,

    OH THANK GOD!!!!
    Thought Goyer was going to ruin another movie,

    • partysub

      affleck’s going to bring a lot to the role behind the scenes, who else is there to look forward to? cavill and snyder are dead between the ears

  • GrimReaper07

    I thought Argo’s screenplay was the worst part of the movie, though it was still quite good. Still, this can only be good news. Now this movie has a chance.

    • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

      Agreed. Lot of nonsense in Argo. Watching pasdaran running after the plane was laughable.

      • Strong Enough

        its called writing a movie.

      • God of Collider

        What the hell point are you trying to make.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        No. It is called insulting people’s intelligence.

      • Strong Enough

        Not really. if you wanted a 100 percent accurate account of the events, watch a documentary. the main purpose of a film is to entertain not educate. Chris needed to write the story in movie format, hence the thrills of a car with machine guns chasing after a plane. It keeps audience thrilled. but you already knows this man!

      • GrimReaper07

        Great movies do more than entertain though. This movie did entertain a lot, but it offered little else.

      • Strong Enough

        A movie can be great and not change your life. Watch the writers roundtable 2013 and you’ll see what i’m talking about. A writer has to first remember he is writing a movie.

      • GrimReaper07

        It can be great, but it can’t be fantastic or transcend in my book. Movies can be art, not just entertainment.

      • Strong Enough

        Yes but all those that are fantastic and “transcend” entertained you. Thats why you liked it. If it was boring dull then it didn’t fulfill it’s purpose. Documentaries are for 100 accuracy. But a movie has to be told in movie format. Beginning middle followed by climax then end. Thats the way its always been

      • GrimReaper07

        Thats… sort of true but really oversimplifying it. I don’t love The Deer Hunter cause its an entertaining movie. Irreversible is a movie I’ll never ever watch again but its a fantastic movie too. Its not ALL about entertainment, but it plays a part in it (in some cases much more than others for sure). I doubt anyone would have labeled Amour as an entertaining film, for example, but an argument could be done about it being one of the best (if not the best) movies of last year.

      • Strong Enough

        When you are going to write a blockbuster like Argo with big names in it and try to market your budget back, you need to write an entertaining film. bottom line. And AMour is entertaining, as there are different forms of how to be entertained. If you weren’t entertained then what? You suffered through Amour? No you continued to watch because you were invested in the characters and wanted to know what happened next. you’re just over analyzing it

      • God of Collider

        It was suppose to be more than that but failed to do so. Also, there’s multiple issues just on a basic filmmaking level. It’s just not good but people want to pretend it’s a masterpiece, which I find insults my intelligence.

      • God of Collider

        Why won’t you respond to my arguments? Coward much?

      • Troll Therapist

        In this session we will try to get down to the bottom of why you are looking for a fight. I can sense that Tarek comes off as a fatherly figure towards you and for that reason alone I conclude that is your sole reason for wanting to fight him. You have so much anger towards your real father that any person that resembles him you find threatening. Let us put down our painted black nailed fists and come together and embrace our love for this website here at the wonderful Collider. I hope one of your layers has been peeled away as we get closer to unraveling your troll nature.

    • Jamesy

      Argo f*ck yourself.

  • partysub

    oooh kill ‘em!

  • SomeGuy

    Well he only has a few credits to his name, but it’s an interesting choice. It kind of gives me the impression that Affleck has an influence on the film outside of the realm of acting. I don’t want to say that this project is doomed or anything before actually seeing the end result, but this is a bit late for bringing in the assistance of another screenwriter. I wish Terrio the best.

    Excellent news ! Now get rid of znyder and goyer and your movie could join The Dark Knight and Spiderman 2 up there.

      goyer was apart of TDK lmao

      • God of Collider

        How’s the air up there Nolan’s bottom?

      • NICK НΛRT

        goyer helped write the story for tdk and tdkr, nothing else. the script was entirely handled by the nolans

      • Strong Enough

        Story is the key word

      • God of Collider

        And Strong Enough knows; he always has a good story for the cops whenever they catch him hanging around schoolyards and little league games in a white van.

      • Reality Check

        Ha Ha Ha. I’m just messing with you, Strong Enough. Say, do you know where i can find a Trayvon Martin impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like CORN! LULZ! ;-).

  • mattinacan

    they are realizing how in over their heads they are, casting all these heroes and villains and having only a Goyer script. Getting some writing talent in there was much needed.

    • NICK НΛRT

      they just did?

  • Jamesy

    Fantastic news, this and the news that they’re looking at Joaquin Phoenix for a role gives me hope. This seems like Affleck is more than just the guy in the suit and that he’s actually allowed some say in the discussion and end results which is great, hope they give him final say on the script. Bring it on.

  • God of Collider

    They should get the Nolan Bros to write the scritp: John Nolan: “DURRRRRR, people like it when your superhero limps around for the first 45 mins of the movie doing sweet f-ck all! Let’s make supes have like an injury or something that he doesn’t treat for a decade.”
    Chris: “You’re da bomb John John. Here let me get them creative juices flowin’” [start polishing john's nob].

    • Troll Therapist

      In our session today I want you to think about the source of your anger. Why is it directed at the Nolan brothers and then ask yourself: “Is working at the Oliver Garden the cause of all my misery? Does cutting my wrist actually get me the attention I need? Does wearing a trench coat in the summer time make any sense? Does having a pony tail as an adult man help my chances of getting laid? Does writing words like ‘DERP’ and ‘LULZ’ actually get my point across any more clear in my silly arguments?” Repeat all of this in your head as you bus tables at the Olive Garden today. Next week in our sessions we’ll try to find out the source of your infatuation of corn flavored piss and your obsession w ingesting it orally.

  • Iron Man 3 Is a Mess

    Something that should have been done with Man of Steel…

  • Ron

    I just hope Joaquin Phoenix will turn them down, This movie will be a disaster…
    Somehow Affleck is running the movie, and that explains why he will be the Batman, he chose himself…

  • Steeeve

    We know that Argo was quite inventive with the truth — but since this isn’t based on reality, inventiveness should be a good thing in this case!

  • NICK НΛRT

    thank god. goyer nearly destroyed the first film. the only thing that worries me is this is supposed to start filming soon.. why wasn’t he brought on earlier?

  • danny

    GOOS NEWS HOPEFULLY HE REWRITES THE WHOLE SCRIPT

  • The Flobbit

    Quick! Now get Demon Lindelof to do rewrites! You know it won’t be as good without it!…Or wait, is this movie actually starting to shape up?

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    It’s a step in the right direction. Had MOS had someone to polish up the script I think it would have been a perfect film. Again, I enjoyed it but found it flawed. It was only a matter of time before they started announcing Ben Affleck’s key group of people who would be coming along to help shape the film. Glad they are reaching high for talent to bring this film together. I doubt they’ll get Joaquin Pheonix to join as they would make him sign a multi picture deal but it shows they are on the right track for casting the type of actor for the role.

    • God of Collider

      See you think that cause you’re mentally slow. It’s OK though.

  • GrimReaper07

    Since when are Oscars serious awards? All the other nominees had better screenplays. I really liked Argo but its hardly movie of the year material either. It was a bit shallow and none of the characters were fleshed out. But what it lacked it made up with other things, in part because of Affleck’s great direction.

    If my opinion doesn’t matter then yours doesn’t either and you’re crying and raving over nothing. Also, are you somewhat implying that all filmmakers with talent are in Hollywood? Cause that’s incredibly ignorant.

  • God of Collider

    Well you probably do work at McDonald’s. The oscars have been around for 80 years. Saying their irrelevant is like saying all awards are irrelevant (which it can be argued they are).

    It’s not like they’re the f-cking golden globes or something.

  • God of Collider

    You, Tarek and Strong Enough embarrass yourselves frequently and have made this one of the worst comment sections in all the internet. It’s frankly embarrassing and disgraceful watching you simpletons drone on and on about subjects that are clearly over your heads.

  • Strong Enough

    LMAO. coming from the biggest troll on collider?

    I have just one answer to your comment trolly: Face palm.

  • Chris Nolan Super Fraud

    Holy crap I am now really embaressed. Sorry guys. Apologies. I was typing this in my online diary that I keep but was rerouted back here. My therapist said it would be good for me to let the anger out as I deal w mutiple personalities and have little self confidence. But honestly after spending the day painting my nails black and screaming that I hate my father I realized that I should be happy with my life. I recently recieved a 12″ black dildo sent by Amazon that actually had one of their Cyberdine-like flying robots drop it directly into my ass. So I wanted to tell everyone thank you for pitching in and buying this for me. My heart and my ass are both now raging w anticpation for the new years as I will get to see another Nolan masterpiece as I sit on my new present. Cheers and god bless Collider

  • God of Collider

    I ain’t no troll homeslice. I shoot straight and give valid, honest critiques about Nolan and his sub par work. You’re the one who’s dumbing down the discourse here by following the herd and allowing your overlord in the WB marketing department to dictate your taste for you.

  • God of Collider

    Here’s a freestyle for you:
    They’re asking me to eliminate some of the Nolan hate
    But if you take into consideration the bitter hatred that I had
    Then you may be a little patient and more sympathetic to the situation
    And understand the discrimination
    But fuck it
    Life’s handing you lemons
    Make lemonade then
    But if I can’t batter the Nolans
    How the fuck am I supposed to bake them a cake then?

  • God of Collider

    See, idiocy. I’ve been trying to make you all smarter by giving you a free schooling each time we clash on these boards but despite whipping your ass every time I don’t seem to be making any progress.

  • God of Collider

    Wow, I’m really kicking your ass today. I suggest bowing out for now and coming back once you’ve trained yourself a bit more in the art of argumentation.

    You just can’t handle the realness brah. You, and only you, respect Nolan as an intellectual the VAST majority of others consider him a fraud.

  • Chris Nolan Super Fraud

    “shoot straight” lmao. The only thing that I would ever want to “shoot straight” is seman in and around my mouth. Sorry about my trolling behavior. Cheers ; O <===8

  • God of Collider

    See? It’s intellectually dishonest of you to pretend I’m a troll when all I’ve ever done is present my opinion, backed up with a substantive argument, that Nolan is a subpar filmmaker. For this I’ve been the subject of harrassment and belittlement and it speaks very poorly of your characters.

  • God of Collider

    @disqus_WqsZlZE7e9:disqus , why are you so jelly of me brah?

  • God of Collider

    You should be ashamed of yourself for using language like that on a public forum. Your parents raised you very poorly.

  • Strong Enough

    lmao cool

  • GrimReaper07

    You haven’t given any arguments. You’ve only talked pretty and threw around the word “intellectual” a lot. I understand some people not adoring Nolan like most seem to do, but say he’s a fraud and a terrible filmmaker? That’s way too harsh.

  • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

    And now ladies and gentlemen, here is the brilliant trolly giving his brilliant opinion onNolan: DRUM ROLL!

    “They should get the Nolan Bros to write the scritp: John Nolan: “DURRRRRR, people like it when your superhero limps around for the first 45 mins of the movie doing sweet f-ck all! Let’s make supes have like an injury or something that he doesn’t treat for a decade.” Chris: “You’re da bomb John John. Here let me get them creative juices flowin’” [start polishing john's nob].”

    WoW! that was brilliant!

  • GrimReaper07

    I didn’t use the word irrelevant cause all award shows are irrelevant. I just said the Oscars are generally not proof of anything. They are known for snubbing a lot of films and giving to much credit to emotionally manipulative films. They never gave Kubrick an award, along with many other masters of cinema and it took them The Departed to give Scorsese one.

  • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

    Once you will start being ashamed of yourself, I will do. I promise.

  • God of Collider

    Why should I feel ashamed? What have I ever said that could be considered shameful? There’s no shame in telling the truth.

  • God of Collider

    Thank you! See if you take the time to actually read what I write you will see that I have some good points. Democracy is built on reasonable debate.

  • God of Collider

    Nolan’s only a fraud because he pretended to have a grand artistic design for his batman trilogy but ended it with a Transformers-level popcorn film. If more people were willing to admit that Rises is shallow I wouldn’t have to spread the truth so much.

  • GrimReaper07

    Its not shallow, its just full of plot holes, inconsistencies and a bad third act. There is a notable character arc and I’d say its pretty great. Up until the last third I’d say its a great movie. Hating one movie doesn’t make him a hack though, it just made him miss the mark on finishing up his trilogy well (as it almost always happens with trilogies sadly).
