The next big superhero blockbuster, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is less than a month away.
And though the comic book flick starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot seems jam packed with new characters, cameos, and action as we’ve seen in the trailers, we’re still not sure if it will be any good…
Especially after some of the rumors floating around the ‘net.
Well, now we have reason to believe the story might be a bit better than expected as Us Weekly reports that Ben actually rewrote a lot of the script !
A source revealed the actor — who won an Oscar for writing Good Will Hunting — “wasn’t thrilled” with the script as it was, so he did a lot of rewrites on set — while he was dressed as Batman!
The source said:
“[Ben] would go into wardrobe and get all suited up for the day in his Batman suit… Then he would sit around reworking the script. Ben wasn’t thrilled with it and would find himself on multiple occasions fixing it the day of.”
We’re definitely stoked to hear that Affleck has made some tweaks, though we’re not sure how that sits with writer David S. Goyer. Though Goyer definitely hasn’t always written comic book gold — Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Jumper, Blade: Trinity…
At the end of the day, knowing that Chris Terrio, who won Best Adapted Screenplay for Argo in 2013, was hired to rewrite the script, and Ben made changes to make it his own, definitely gives us a bit more confidence in the film!
What do you think about Affleck rewriting scenes on the fly?
