Those who were disappointed with David S. Goyer’s script for Man of Steel will be happy with this news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar winning scribe Chris Terrio (Argo) will rewrite the current Batman vs. Superman script and will provide a new draft. Terrio – who was no doubt brought on board by star Ben Affleck – is said to be getting the script into shape in time for the planned February start date. Goyer is apparently too busy to do so himself, as he is attached to a slew of DC movies (such as the recently announced Sandman). This move makes sense, as Terrio has a strong relationship with Affleck and Warner Bros. after the success of Argo.
Batman vs. Superman (not the final title) is scheduled to hit theaters July 17th, 2015. The follow-up to Man of Steel, the next installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, with Jason Momoa in talks to join. Zack Snyder directs from a script by David S. Goyer.
