The internet was up in arms this week after it was announced that Ben Affleck was meeting with Warner Bros. about directing DC Comics’ answer to The Avengers with a Justice League film. Well calm down geeks, new reports are claiming that Affleck’s meeting at Warner Bros. was nothing more than “a meeting” and that he will NOT be directing the superhero collaboration film.
That being said, WB needs to land a big name to direct a Justice League film. With The Avengers blowing up box office numbers this year, and locking up Joss Whedon for a sequel, The Justice League can really compete assuming it can get some solid credits both in front of, and behind, the the camera.
Christopher Nolan has already said that he would be moving on from super hero films including all things Dark Knight, so who would you like to see directing a Justice League movie?
