Forbes Speculate that Batman will Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE

Forbes Speculate that Batman will Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE

With all the Speculation on the Man of Steel sequel and the 10 month push back, Mark Hughes has a Logical Speculation that Ben Affleck will direct the DC's ensemble movie...Hit the Jump to find out more...


We all know that Ben Afleck turned down the Justice League project before Zack Snyder and David Goyer had a new vision on how the DC Cinematic Universe should pan out, hence Warner's shelving Will Beall screenplay

Ben Affleck has already bought his own writers on board and now Forbes writer Mark Hughes has his own speculation that our new Batman will be given the roles to direct WB biggest tent pole movie, the Justice league movie.
'Having Ben Affleck aboard was doubly valuable, not only for his acting skills and popularity but also for his writing and directing abilities. As an Oscar-winning screenwriter and producer, and someone widely acknowledged as having been snubbed for a Best Director Oscar nomination (for Argo, and I also personally think he should’ve also been nominated for Gone Baby Gone), he is one of the finest directors in cinema today.
So, the question is, with Snyder directing Batman vs. Superman, will he be able to do months of post-production on that film and still get started on a Justice League movie in time for it to get finished and released within a year of Batman vs. Superman? Or should we start discussing the possibility that Warner might be negotiating with Ben Affleck to direct Justice League'

So what do you think, Do you want Ben Afleck to direct the Justice League movie?

I think it is more likely that Zack Snyder will direct Justice League. I think Ben Affleck will direct the new Batman films.

HUH! Duh!!!!!! We all knew this was going to happen, and this is the reason for the delay of the release date.
mcminnjb1990 - 1/31/2014, 8:29 AM
Although I would love for this to be true I just dont see it happening. I think if they shoot back to back it will be Snyders baby. Big Ben will most likely direct the batman movies
JoeMomma29 - 1/31/2014, 8:29 AM
@ MexicanSuperman

I actually see Ben Affleck doing the JL and Snyder overseeing the whole DCCU and doing MOS and maybe another character in my opinion. If this turns out to be true and I hope it is, it is only good news. It is good news because that means they can bring in other talented directors and writers etc......
EdgyOutsider - 1/31/2014, 8:31 AM
Ideally I would like to see him or David Yates direct Justice League. Don't need more quantity over quality.
batz11 - 1/31/2014, 8:31 AM
YES, I approve...
SuperCat - 1/31/2014, 8:35 AM
Nah, I want Snyder to direct.
JoeMomma29 - 1/31/2014, 8:37 AM
@ SuperCat

What I am personally hoping and of course I know this is a pipe dream, but a Snyder/Aflec directed JL movie!!!!!!

@ Joe

I could live with that combo!
JoeMomma29 - 1/31/2014, 8:41 AM
@ GlodenOne

Huh! Were you not trolling on other articles saying that Ben was going to be replaced or he was quitting?
EdgyOutsider - 1/31/2014, 8:41 AM
@GoldenOne: No one said straight up that Snyder was directing Justice League. It was just assumed, especially if rumors are to be believed and they are shooting BVS and JL back to back.
SychoSid85 - 1/31/2014, 8:41 AM
I'd be down for that, have Snyder produce, have Goyer co-write. That'd be great if he directed an Oscar award winning Justice League movie, doubtful, but it'd be cool.
Brainiac13 - 1/31/2014, 8:42 AM
I would love Afleck to direct the JL and solo Batman movies.
SychoSid85 - 1/31/2014, 8:43 AM
Though, him directing solo/team up Bats movies would be more fitting.
McNyagano - 1/31/2014, 8:43 AM
I approve!! Just don't let Snyder and Goyer near it. Affleck has proven himself to be a great director.
charlie2094 - 1/31/2014, 8:44 AM
Could see that happening! Would be down for it too...don't see it happening though, imagine it'll have a back to back shooting and Snyder will direct both
McNyagano - 1/31/2014, 8:48 AM
I really don't want Snyder directing the Justice League. Let somemone else do it.
BlackIceJoe - 1/31/2014, 8:48 AM
I see him doing the solo Batman movie more. The reason why if B/S and JL are being filmed back to back it would be a pain to switch directors for the next film.
Vegeta - 1/31/2014, 8:53 AM
I'm cool with Snyder or Affleck directing Justice League.
marvel72 - 1/31/2014, 8:55 AM
i don't think batman will,i believe daredevil will.
SychoSid85 - 1/31/2014, 8:59 AM
Ummm, am I the only one who was caused to take a second look, due to Hawkgirl?
beto - 1/31/2014, 9:04 AM
I want Affleck directing, Cavill writing it, Gadot editing, Momoa behind the camera, Whoever they cas as Green Lantern making the music, Whoever they cast as Flash doing the CGI.

That would be a real Justice league movie.
Niklander - 1/31/2014, 9:05 AM
I like the idea but Affleck is more of a story teller.Effects aren't his style.Come on WB have Peter Jackson dammit
knocturnalzen10 - 1/31/2014, 9:08 AM
interesting .................................
cosmicman - 1/31/2014, 9:09 AM
who cares what some blogger at Forbes says
beto - 1/31/2014, 9:11 AM
@niklander you could have Affleck writing & Snyder directing... Zack is way better when he has a good script in his hands.
Brainiac13 - 1/31/2014, 9:22 AM

That all we have at the moment rumors and speculation.
SychoSid85 - 1/31/2014, 9:34 AM
Yea, Disney's Marvel Studios never have any rumors, or speculation around their movies.
SychoSid85 - 1/31/2014, 9:35 AM
Silly kids these days.
Emblemmaniac - 1/31/2014, 9:41 AM
Storywize, i have no problem with Affleck. But can he handle the action and effect that is a must for a movie like Justice Leauge?
fonfon2607 - 1/31/2014, 9:44 AM
BritishMonkey - 1/31/2014, 10:36 AM
Little slow on that. Everybody suspected it around september/november.
sKeemAn - 1/31/2014, 11:17 AM
Very good news. He'll bring some good drama to the movie.
sKeemAn - 1/31/2014, 11:18 AM
With Zack Snyder's action. This should be an awesome flick.
poop23 - 1/31/2014, 12:30 PM
Where's the article for this big news??? Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor....

StrangerX - 1/31/2014, 1:15 PM
I want a JL movie ala Snyders Watchmen style, but Ben is a Boston native and I always go with tge home team
thebearjew - 1/31/2014, 1:20 PM
im sure between all these guys Snyder Affleck goyer terrio (who ever else Affleck gets) has some big stuff planned it will take a lot of time though
(warners isn't a comic book movie studio) like marvel
staypuffed - 1/31/2014, 1:29 PM
I'd love him to direct Justice League. More so than Snyder, who I still really like.
Bearjew - 1/31/2014, 1:34 PM
Over Zack Snyder's dead body. Affleck might write it though and get Goyer over to Wonder Woman to keep him distracted on his own project. I just don't see Snyder handing over the key to the city after building it from scratch.
