Ben Affleck To Possibly Co-Star In And Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE
With news that Joss Whedon has just inked a new deal to stay with Marvel through 2015 and direct The Avengers 2, Warner Brothers responds by going after Ben Affleck to co-star and helm Justice League.
After yesterday's announcement that Disney/Marvel locked in Joss Whedon for another Avengers picture and a TV show, it should come as no surprise that Warner Brothers would want to respond by dropping their own bombshell. According to Variety WB is looking to Ben Affleck to helm their superhero team up movie Justice League. The film is said to bring together such DC players as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern. Affleck is not a shoe in for the job at this point. One of the sticking points to him directing the film is that he wants to be apart of the cast. He is expected to meet with Warner Brothers executives in the coming days to try and hammer out all the details.
Earlier I had reported that Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel would be working towards a shared universe to set up a Justice League movie. There have also been rumors out there that Batman will be rebooted during that upcoming Justice League project, with his next solo film coming in 2016. However, according to my source Warner Brothers is not quite sure how they will handle the Batman reboot, as well as what they are going to do with Green Lantern. As mentioned before, the roster that Warner Brothers is looking to use in the film includes Batman, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern. Two notable names missing from that list are Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. For the latest on Justice League make sure you check back here at CBM daily.
