While the plan was at all times for Justice League to be a extra hopeful movie, Terrio nonetheless did a rewrite to mirror the enter he was getting.
“I rewrote Justice League to lighten the mood a little bit—which became the Zack Snyder Justice League,” Terrio stated. “That’s a slightly lighter, less dense version of the script, which I was fine with.”
But it wasn’t till Zack Snyder needed to depart the mission after a horrible private tragedy and was changed by Joss Whedon that issues took a activate the mission.
“When the movie was taken away, that felt like it was some directive that had come from people who are neither filmmakers nor film-friendly,” he stated. “The directive to make the movie under two hours, regardless of what the movie needed to do, and to make the colors brighter, and to have funny sitcom jokes in it.”
To complicate issues additional, by that time there was a schedule in place for the increasing shared universe of DC superhero motion pictures. This left Terrio engaged on a team-up movie that includes characters whose personal worlds had been nonetheless meant to be fleshed out in future movies.
“The Wonder Woman script wasn’t even finished when I wrote Justice League,” Terrio stated for instance. “So I had no basis to write Wonder Woman other than Batman/Superman. Themyscira didn’t even exist. I was never shown anything on the page for it. I didn’t know whether people could talk underwater. That was a thing that I had to ask, because I didn’t know if I could do underwater scenes with Aquaman and Atlanteans. It was all just from scratch because there had been no [solo] character films.”
