In an explosive interview with Vanity Fair, Oscar-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio laid out his many issues with Warner Bros. as well as his work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
When asked about what Terrio wanted to avoid when writing Dawn of Justice, he said that he didn’t want the conflict between Batman and Superman to be “a sitcom joke” and make it uncomfortable for audiences:
“I didn’t want to make it a sitcom joke that Batman and Superman are trying to kill each other. If I’m going to work on this movie, it’s going to be dark and operatic, and it’s going to be uncomfortable. Zack and I come from very different approaches to filmmaking, but I immediately liked him because he isn’t cynical and he wears his heart on his sleeve. I’m cynical enough for any room that I enter into.”
