Sortly after a rumor hit that Ben Affleck might be directing the Justice League movie for Warner Bros., it was made clear that he wouldn't be doing it. But the actor/director confirmed himself in a recent interview with the Canadian press that he's not working on the film.
I'm not working on the Justice League. One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that's how rumours get started. Justice League sounds really exciting, but it's not something I'm working on.
I was actually interested to see what Affleck's vision of the DC Universe would be. He's a much better choice than many of the other directors out there that the studio could hire to take it on. Hopefully, whoever Warner Bros. hires will be solid choice. Who would you like to see take on the film project? Other than Chistopher Nolan.
