It was reported that Ben Affleck was Warner Bros. top pick to direct the Justice League movie, with it even said the actor/director was the only candidate to receive the script.
Then it was reported that Ben Affleck’s involvement was grossly exaggerated, even “BS.”
Now, Ben Affleck has come out and said that he is not working on the Justice League movie.
“I’m not working on the Justice League,” Affleck said, reports 24hrs.ca. “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.”
However, the 24hrs website notes that Affleck’s word could be taken as having a “yet” at the end of the sentence.
If Affleck does end up taking the job, it seems likely that he will also have some sort of role in the Justice League movie as well. Reportedly, Affleck only accepts the director gig with that caveat attached.
