THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE (2017): Chris Terrio Discusses Script’s Influences

Justice League Part One

Chris Terrio talks about The Justice League Part One. The Argo and Man of Steel screenwriter revealed his sources of inspiration for the film’s screenplay.

In addition to his duties on Justice League, Terrio served as screenwriter for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will further establish the universe the movie and it’s sequels take place in. Describing the various works and media he looked to for creative guidance, the writer covered a broad range of topics that range from the DC comics the movies are based on to esoteric fields of scientific study. He also cast doubt on the possibility that he will return to work on Justice League‘s planned 2019 sequel:

“I have written Justice League Part One, but I won’t necessarily write ‘Part Two.’ This has been the most rigorous intellectual exercise I’ve had in my writing life. For Batman v Superman, I wanted to really dig into everything from ideas about American power to the structure of revenge tragedies to the huge canon of DC Comics to Amazon mythology. For Justice League, I could be reading in the same day about red- and blueshifts in physics, Diodorus of Sicily and his account of the war between Amazons and Atlanteans, or deep-sea biology and what kind of life plausibly might be in the Mariana Trench. If you told me the most rigorous dramaturgical and intellectual product of my life would be superhero movies, I would say you were crazy. But I do think fans deserve that. I felt I owed the fan base all of my body and soul for two years because anything less wouldn’t have been appreciating the opportunity I had.”
