Warner Brothers has just announced that Chris Terrio, the Oscar-winning writer of [Argo](movie:46573) and current writer for [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870), will be staying with the studio for Justice League.
This comes as little surprise, given that Batman v Superman will be the official set up for the Justice League; it is the first DC movie to feature two major heroes, and [Wonder Woman](movie:45787) will be joining Batman and Superman in a smaller role. By keeping the same writer for both movies, and filming them back to back, we are guaranteed continuity in style as well as in the details. It's similar to what Marvel has done with Joss Whedon through Phases 1 and 2, so this is savvy of DC, though it begs the question: What happened to David Goyer being involved? Maybe WB had him on a short leash after his inflammatory She-Hulk comments or maybe he's still involved, but we haven't heard his name in a while.
Terrio has also written for Affleck before (in Argo) and clearly the two work very well together. There has been much debate over this casting for Batman, and it is reassuring to see someone writing for the character who knows how to get the best out of the actor.
More Justice League news is expected to break during the DC panel on Saturday, and casting is top of that list. We already know that the actors from Batman v Superman will be reprising their roles, but the remaining characters are not yet confirmed. Jason Momoa has been rumored to be a favorite for the role of [Aquaman](movie:264237), and I would love to see that officially announced in the next couple of days.
