Ben Affleck "Incredibly Unhappy" About BATMAN v SUPERMAN Reception; New Details On JUSTICE LEAGUE Role

Earlier today, we learned that Ben Affleck has been upgraded to EP on Justice League, but what role will he play? It sounds like the actor and director has an axe to grind with Warner Bros. anyway...

Following the news that Ben Affleck will executive produce Justice League, The Hollywood Reporter has shed some light on what exactly Ben Affleck's upgraded role means for that movie. Apparently, the Argo helmer is working closely with screenwriter Chris Terrio to "fine-tune the script" and will play a key role in the postproduction process, no bad thing when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was widely criticised for the way it was edited and how the story ended up panning out as a result.  

However, Birth.Movies.Death take that one step further by revealing that, "Affleck was incredibly unhappy about the reception of BvS. He felt humiliated after spending so much of the press tour saying how much better this film would be than Daredevil. On top of that his agent was furious when Kevin Tsujihara jumped the gun and announced him as the director of The Batman - there were still negotiations happening. This move seems to help placate Affleck while also edging Zack Snyder out of a controlling central position in the DC Movieverse."

Ouch! Still, with Batman v Superman receiving a score on Rotten Tomatoes of 28% compared to Daredevil's 44% and the actor becoming a meme in the form of #SadAffleck, you can understand why he feels that way and why he wants more control.

What kind of an impact this will have on Justice League remains to be seen, but Affleck taking an active role in the movie's production is no bad thing. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...
