OSCAR-winning writer Chris Terrio has been enlisted to help pen the script for Warner Bros’ Man of Steel sequel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the scribe has been brought in to write a draft of the as-yet untitled Batman-Superman movie.

News of the appointment broke on the same day that Joaquin Phoenix became linked to the role of Lex Luthor.

On the writing front, Terrio’s presence comes as a direct result of his strong relationship with both Warner Bros and Ben Affleck, who stars as Batman in the film, and with whom he collaborated extensively on the script for Argo.

He will reportedly get the script, which has already been penned by David Goyer, into shape ahead of the start of filming early next year in Michigan.

The screenplay is reportedly based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Superman) and Bob Kane (Batman)

Goyer, for his part, has been tied up with a number of other DC Comics titles, including Sandman – to which Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently became attached.
