After reporting that Warner Brothers has expressed interest in casting Joaquin Phoenix for an unknown role in Zack Snyder‘s Batman vs. Superman, we are learning that the film is bringing in another talent of Oscar-winning caliber on board.
THR reports that Chris Terrio, who won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on Argo, is being brought in to polish David S. Goyer‘s first draft of the superhero sequel. It comes as no surprise that Terrio joins the team, considering that he has already worked with Argo star Ben Affleck, who stars as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
It also makes sense that WB Studios hires Terrio, since Goyer is also tied up with writing scripts for Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman and other smaller DC Comic Title projects.
Also starring Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill, Batman vs. Superman opens in theaters on July 15th, 2015. Production for the film will begin in Michigan early next year.
So what do you think of the hire? Does it make you more excited about the sequel?
