It's no secret that almost everyone involved with Justice League was unhappy with the reshoots. One of these people happens to be Chris Terrio, who originally worked on the script for the film which was rewritten by Joss Whedon. Interestingly, Terrio has finally broken his silence and says he had wanted his name removed from the theatrical cut.

Terrio was initially brought in to pen the screenplay for two Justice League movies. However, the script was ultimately rewritten by Whedon when he took over the project after Zack Snyder had to leave.

Interestingly, Terrio was still credited in the Justice League theatrical cut although it was a completely different movie. As he explains to Vanity Fair, he had wanted his name removed from the film.

"I immediately called my lawyer and said, 'I want to take my name off the film.' [The lawyer] then called Warner Bros. and told them that I wanted to do that," Terrio said.

Although it was possible, it would mean that the movie would be delayed. At this point, Terrio decided not to do anything to avoid "an international scandal and news story."

"So I shut up and I said nothing publicly," Terrio concluded.

The theatrical cut barely had any semblance to what Terrio had originally written. However, it all worked out in the end. His screenplay was ultimately used by Snyder for Zack Snyder's Justice League. Luckily, fans were still able to see Snyder's original vision for the movie.

Zack Snyder's Justice League is still available on HBO Max.
