More evidence of Ben Affleck’s growing influence over the DC movie canon, according to Deadline Chris Terrio is taking on the script for the Justice League movie based on the strength of his screenplay for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Terrio, who worked with Affleck on the Oscar-winning Argo and the forthcoming Bunker Hill, came in to tidy up the Batman V Superman script in December 2013.

The earlier draft was done by The Dark Knight and Man Of Steel screenwriter David S Goyer, who is also credited for the rewrite.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be released on 6 May 2016 – read our defence of Ben Affleck’s casting here and Gal Gadot’s casting here. Find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics.
