Last year news broke that Ben Affleck and DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns were working on a Batman script together. Then Affleck confirmed it. So what’s the collaboration process like on a big script like this? Kevin Smith spent a lot of time with Geoff Johns recently for the “Dawn of the Justice League” special they hosted, and revealed what Johns told him about the script.
“He’s been working on a solo script with Geoff Johns as well. Last conversation I had with Geoff Johns I was like are you working on it? And he said ‘yeah’. I said what’s it like man, how do you co-write with someone? And he’s going we just break it up, he takes halves and I take halves and then we write, and then we switch material, and then he goes over mine and I go over his.”
