The Hollywood Reporter writes that Chris Terrio has been brought on to work on the Batman vs. Superman script. Terrio, whose first and only full screenplay, Argo, won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, has a very good relationship with Ben Affleck, for obvious reasons. Terrio is taking over for David S. Goyer, who wrote Man of Steel and the last draft of the Batman vs. Superman script, but is too busy with other DC Comics projects, like Sandman, to see it to the end. Watch out, Zack Snyder, next thing you know Affleck will be taking over your job and Batman will find himself moving from Gotham to Boston.
