As we’re counting down to ‘Batman vs Superman’ (13 days left!), looking too far into the DCU crystal ball probably isn’t on everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, there might be some bad news in the DCU universe before it even debuts. Chris Terrio, All Star writer, wasn’t even slated to participate in the first ‘Justice League’ script to begin with. The writer quickly rose to fame after writing the movie ‘Argo’ which coincidentally, was directed by Ben Affleck. After witnessing Jesse Eisenberg play out his role with the same passion Terrio envisioned when writing about Lex Luthor, he changed his mind. Now that the script for ‘Justice League’ is written and shooting will take place in a couple of week, Terrio seems to think his job is done.
“I have written Justice League Part One, but I won’t necessarily write Part Two,” Terrio told the Wall Street Journal. “This has been the most rigorous intellectual exercise I’ve had in my writing life.
We’ve seen a case like this before with Joss Whedon of Marvel, who called it quits after writing ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. Today’s comic book fans demand nothing but the best and they’re quick to criticize if things don’t go their way. That usually ends up adding unwanted pressure to the writers and filmmakers behind the movie. Time will only tell if we see award winning writer Chris Terrio’s work in the 2019 movie. All we can do now is wait..
‘Batman vs. Superman’ comes out on March 25, 2016, ‘Justice League: Part 1’ comes out November 26, 2017, and ‘Justice League: Part 2’ comes out June 14, 2019.
