With “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” finally hitting cinemas in a month’s time, an interesting rumor has now popped up regarding the film’s script.
Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer are the film’s credited screenwriters with “Argo” scribe Terrio said to be the one mostly responsible for it – taking over for Goyer who did the early drafts. Now, a new report over at US Weekly says that another writer had some serious involvement in it – none other than the film’s leading co-star Ben Affleck.
The site indicates Affleck was “less than thrilled” with the original script and spent time rewriting parts of it, even whilst in costume and right before he was set to shoot those scenes. Their source says Affleck: “would go into wardrobe and get all suited up for the day in his Batman suit. Then he would sit around reworking the script. Ben wasn’t thrilled with it and would find himself on multiple occasions fixing it the day of.”
It comes from a good place though, Affleck is said to be “fascinated by the character” and “was excited to do a Batman film”. Affleck’s pedigree for screenwriting is, much like his directing, highly acclaimed so this sounds like a good thing.
We’ll see the results ourselves when the film opens March 25th.
