Screenwriter Chris Terrio has remained relatively quiet about the drama surrounding Joss Whedon and Justice LeagueHowever, the writer is now opening up about what happened in 2017, and Terrio doesn’t cut words in a new interview with Vanity Fair
Terrio, known for his work on such films as Argo and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, discussed Whedon’s version of Justice LeagueWhile saying that Snyder is “ too much of a gentleman, ” nothing stopped Terrio, he even went that far Josstice League an “act of vandalism”
“The 2017 theatrical cut was an act of vandalism,” said Terrio. “Zack may be too big of a gentleman to say that, but I am not. When those personal details were removed from the movie in the 2017 version, I fell silent because I couldn’t really say anything, but of course it hurt. All that remained was a dinosaur skeleton of what had been a large, unwieldy beast. It may have been a big, unruly beast, and it’s clearly four o’clock, and the movie is maximalistic, and it’s opera and, sure, it’s a little crazy, but I think the movie is crazy in the best way . I didn’t know how much of the movie was going to be changed – or destroyed, in my opinion. When I spoke to different actors, it became clear that it was a total dismantling of what had been before. I have not heard from anyone who said it was a pleasant experience. “

Terrio also had a few words for Warner Bros., who infamously pulled out nearly 30 minutes Batman vs Superman: “If you were to take 30 minutes out Argo as they were from Batman vs Superman, it wouldn’t make any sense at all. Critics would say ‘what a lazy scenario’ because the characters have no motivation and it is not coherent. “
In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to make sure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ‘s ultimate sacrifice wasn’t in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) joins forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to team up of metahumans to protect the world from an impending threat of catastrophic proportions.

Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid, and their terrible intentions.
