As part of the interview, Terrio said he was aware of complaints about both of his DC screenplays. But say that’s what happens when all scripts are cut to save length. As for other critiques that his vision of the DC universe was too dark, Terrio said the version of Batman v Superman he was hired to rewrite was darker.
Justice League Snyder Cut: All the known differences from the drama version.
“The studio seemed to take the position after that. [Batman v Superman] “My writing was too dark and this was their problem,” Terrio said. “But what they didn’t mention is, for example, in the sketch of the Batman / Superman script that WB ha developed – [which was] The sketch I received when I joined the project – not only Batman. But only branded criminals with the bat, he also wrapped up the film by branding Lex Luthor. “
Terrio says he “goes to the mat” with WB in this ending, arguing that while Batman can start the movie as an unrecognizable dark character, he needs to end up on a path to redemption, which It’s a theme Terrio hopes to continue in Justice League.
“[Batman] One must see the flaws of his ways and recognize his better self in the movie. At the end of the movie he has to be the Batman we know and he has to be ready to make the Justice League, ”Terrio said.
Terrio also cut back on old ideas, such as Superman “Raining with African Black Muslims in the Desert” after Lois was punched by a kidnapper early in the movie. [to WB], ‘I saved you from yourself! “” Terrio says, “’I work with the director to bring the voice of the conscience to this dark, dark film you’ve been developing over the years. But I have a problem here? ‘The screenwriter said that despite his experience in Batman v Superman, he also signed a contract to write Justice League to have the opportunity to write these characters. “Love and Hope,” but the working conditions of the film are also complicated. For example, the Wonder Woman episode was not finished when Terrio wrote the Justice League, so he said he had no basis for writing Wonder Woman or Aquaman for that.
And while Terrio would not comment on how Joss Whedon handled the re-shooting, saying he never met Joss and didn’t recognize him, he said after watching Whedon’s Justice League cut, Terrio called his attorney. To try to get his name out of that version Of the film
But deleting his name until the release date could delay the scandalous film, “so I shut up and said nothing publicly. I haven’t said anything about the Justice League since then. But this film doesn’t represent my work. ”
For Snyder’s montage, Terrio praised Snyder for filming his part well and is happy to accept criticism or praise for this episode, his original on-screen version.
“People have a problem with this version of the movie … But that I can accept because that is really a criticism of my work. That’s a fair game, and I’ll be involved with it every day. People can quarrel with the movie. But at least they had a fight with my version and the Zack version. ”
