Apparently WB Wanted Ben Affleck To Play Batman In JUSTICE LEAGUE

That's right: According to Latino Review's Elmayimbe, not only did the studio look to the Argo director to helm their big screen DC superhero team-up flick, but to star in it as The Caped Crusader too. Read on for more details..



This doesn't really matter too much now of course, but it is an interesting piece of "what if" news. Around the time it was first reported that Warner Bros. wanted Ben Affleck to direct their big screen take on Justice League, it was also rumored that they wanted him to appear in the movie too. No role was specified, but many fans assumed that it might well be Batman, and it seems they were right! Coming off the news/rumor that WB have rejected Will Beall’s script for the film, Latino review's scoop machine Elmayimbe decided to drop the following bit of info our way..




Also, in regards to the report that the movie may now be in jeopardy, he Tweets: "Justice League. To be continued. Trust me on this fanboy nation”. Sounds like he has some more info about these proceedings. What do you think? Would Affleck have made a good Batman?
