Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Screenwriter Chris Terrio revealed that, prior to tackling the project, Batman originally engaged in much more gruesome behavior with the film’s villain, Lex Luthor.

“The study appeared to adopt this position after BvS that my writing was too dark and that was his problem, “Terrio explained to Vanity fair. “But what they didn’t mention was that, for example, in the Batman / Superman script draft that WB had developed …[which was] The draft they gave me when I joined the project, Batman was not only marking criminals with a bat mark, he also ended the film by marking Lex Luthor. “

“That ending was a point about which I explicitly went to the mat with the studio over and over again,” Terrio continued. “I argued that Batman cannot finish the movie by continuing this behavior, which amounted to torture, because then the movie supported what he did.”

Terrio is an Oscar-winning screenwriter responsible for writing the movie scripts ranging from DC Extended Universe entries such as Batman v superman for Argo for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He also directed the 2005 independent film Heights.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter, and Gal Gadot.
