Ben Affleck’s Big Directing Offer
Ben Affleck’s Big Directing Offer, The star once swore off superhero flicks, but this one may be too good to ignore. Ben Affleck approached to direct ‘Justice League’, It will take a super director to take on the superhero team movie “Justice League.” Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has approached Ben Affleck to lead the DC comic book project.
Affleck isn’t Joss Whedon, the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” wunderkind who directed the megahit “The Avengers.” And he’s not Christopher Nolan, who brought back Batman in the “Dark Knight” trilogy’s stunning reboot — and who already said ‘no’ to a ‘Justice League’ movie.
But the 39-year-old Affleck is a successful director (“The Town”), an Oscar-winning writer (“Good Will Hunting”), and an actor who even suited up as Superman in the biopic about George Reeves (who played the superhero on TV) in “Hollywoodland.”
Similar to the Marvel comic book-based “Avengers,” “Justice League” would star a team of superheroes. Headliners could include the DC comic book characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and the Flash.
