Earlier this month, Variety reported that Warner Bros. was looking at Ben Affleck to direct the Justice League movie from a script by Will Beall. The film is expected to include such popular characters as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash.
Following that news came reports that Affleck had already passed on the project, and now come some new quotes from him via 24 Hours.
“I’m not working on the Justice League,” Affleck is quoted as saying. “One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that’s how rumours get started.”
He added that “Justice League sounds really exciting, but it’s not something I’m working on.”
Of course, he seems to be leaving a door open with those quotes. Just because he’s not working on the film right now, doesn’t mean he won’t be at a later time. If he does not direct, who do you think should take on the project?
