A while back it was claimed that Hollywood star Ben Affleck had been offered the job of directing the Justice League movie. Given how impressive Ben has been with his directing duties in recent years, this would have been a very acceptable choice for most people.
However, Affleck turned down the chance to direct the Justice League film and now, new reports are suggesting that he also turned down another offer. It has been claimed that Ben Affleck was also offered the role of Batman in the Justice League movie.
Latino review's scoop machine Elmayimbe recently tweeted, “FUN & FABULOUS FANBOY FACT OF THE DAY: DID YA KNOW WHEN AFFLECK WAS APPROACHED TO DIRECT JUSTICE LEAGUE THEY ALSO WANTED HIM TO PLAY BATMAN?” and they tend to be pretty accurate with their information.
As we are all very much aware by now, the Justice League movie has had to go back to the drawing board, following Will Beall's poor script. That means that it could be a good three or four years before we get to even start thinking about actually seeing the movie on the big screen.
Do you think Ben Affleck would make a good Batman in the Justice League movie?
