On the heels of the commercial and critical success of  The Town, Variety is reporting that Ben Affleck has ascended Warner Bros’ “list of filmmakers who can be trusted with prime properties.”  As such, he is the only candidate so far to receive Will Beall’s Justice League script.

Although a Justice League movie has been talked about for years, it is certainly being spurred forward by the huge success of Marvel’s Avengers.  The big question is, will Affleck suit up?  He has previously commented that he only has interest in directing films in which he is also acting.  After Daredevil, I’m on the fence, but I’m willing to give it a shot.  Just as long as Batman doesn’t get neutered in the attempt to keep the movie light and family-friendly!


I can’t wait to see all the DC powerhouses share the screen.  What do you think?

      Oh no, not Affleck! The Town wasn't bad, but I don't think he has the experience to handle what is sure to be a huge summer blockbuster!

      Argo looks cool. I bet Affleck can do it. He seems to respect the material.
