DC and Warner Brothers are looking for their version of Joss Whedon.
And they think they may have found it in the form of Ben Affleck.
According to reports, Affleck has been sent a script for the proposed Justice League movie and will meet with studio executives in the next several days to discuss the project. Affleck has been offered high profile projects with the studio in the past, including Man of Steel, though he turned down that project. He’s also been linked to the upcoming trilogy of films based on The Stand.
Now before you rush to the comments to cry foul over this, consider that Affleck has had a solid record as a director on projects like The Town and Gone Baby Gone. He has a good record working on ensemble pieces and that could be the balance that is needed to make a Justice League movie work.
We’ll keep our ears open for more details and bring them to you as they develop.
