Apparently Ben Affleck Has Already Passed On JUSTICE LEAGUE

Apparently Ben Affleck Has Already Passed On JUSTICE LEAGUE

This was bound to happen. After Variety broke the news that WB wanted the Argo director for the highly anticipated DC superhero team-up flick, rival trade Deadline have added their 2 cents, and they claim it's a "no" from the Affleck camp..

It took a bit longer than expected, but Deadline have stuck their oar in on the Ben Affleck/ Justice League story. Just in case you somehow missed the news earlier, Variety revealed that Warner Bros. want The Town/Gone Baby Gone director to helm their big screen DC super hero movie, but NOT that Affleck has agreed to do it. Well, now Deadline report that the answer is already no.



Mike Flemming claims that Affleck has no plans to get involved, stating: "This is a story I checked out days ago, and didn’t run when Affleck’s reps stated that it was not going to happen with him." The thing is, they do confirm that WB want him for the movie -- also mentioning David Yates' name as one of the studio's go-to-guys -- and that he will "take a meeting". So, is he interested or isn't he? Deadline are just as reliable as Variety when it comes to breaking the big stories, but their little trade-war does make it difficult to know exactly what to believe here. Something tells me this isn't the last we will hear about it before the week is out anyway.
