Ben Affleck Offered to Direct SUPERMAN Reboot!?

It looks like Warner Bros. has has offered the Superman reboot directors gig to Ben Affleck! I honestly wasn't expecting that. Apparently he was Christopher Nolan's top choice. Nolan suggested it to Warner Bros. and according to Deadline, Warner's made him an offer. 

This bit of news was buried in Deadline's weekend Box-office round-up. 

....Warner Bros just offered him Superman to helm on Chris Nolan's suggestion. (But Affleck likely will turn it down.)

So they say Affleck may end up turning it down, but why would he do that unless he doesn't think he could do it justice. A project like this could launch his directing career to a whole new level. 

I'm still more interested in Duncan Jones taking on the project. I think Affleck is a talented director, but I'm just not sure if he's got what it takes to bring and epic Superman film to the big screen. But then maybe he can, and we just don't know it yet.

What do you all think about Affleck possibly directing the Superman reboot?
