Default Ben Affleck approached to direct "Justice League"

http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-...234840949.html

Didnt see a thread about it So I figured Id post it.

To be honest, I really do not want to see a justice league movie so soon. Really much at all. Marvel had a master plan and I think Whedon started writing the movie almost 10 years ago, but it didnt gain any traction until 08 or 09 I think. Id prefer to see DC focus on individual superhero movies w/ way more realism to it. Batman set the standard, Id like to see other DC heroes follow suit. Very excited to see how Man of Steel will turn out.

Not to diss marvel in any way, I think they are better suited for the unrealistic, fantasy style superheroes. Thats what makes some of their heroes better than some of the ones in the DC universe.

BTW, I liked what I saw from The Town but that is a crime drama, so unless he will make the Justice league movie a crime drama Im not so sure how good it is going to turn out...

Coming from a DC fan, let marvel have their victory for right now on a huge superhero movie, but lets focus on our guys one movie at a time and maybe someday a Justice League movie. No point in rushing and ending up w/ a movie that doesnt do Justice League any justice (no pun intended).

DC will be dumb to make a Justice League movie. If you watched Iron Man, Captain America, etc., you see that those Marvel movies all intended to end up as prequels to The Avengers. It was put together masterfully. I doubt DC will be able to pull that off.

apparently nolan is going to reboot batman in i think 2016 for the Justice League movie.

But tbh how are you going to portray heros like flash and wonder women, they are characters to me that works in comics but on the big screen they are going to look foolish.

However if the movie ends up like this

Eh, Justice League has always been slightly weaker in my eyes. GL bombed, you really see Wonder Woman or Aquaman stand-alone films doing any better?

If Man of Steel doesn't do Batman type numbers they'll probably consider that a bust too.

DC should make a sandman movie, no one wants to see super man or green lantern or those outdated cheese ball heroes that populate the justice league


What they should do is a goddamn liveaction version of the Dark Knight Returns and the Dark Knight Strikes Again. Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez direct!

Affleck is a comic book fan and a pretty solid director.

I don't think there would be any problems with him wrecking the source material and after his experience of the studio basically stealing Daredevil from the director and ruining it I don't think he would accept unless he had a good amount of control.

DC should just stick to standalone films. Although Affleck is a good director, I don't see how all those characters mesh in a live action movie. A World's Finest movie would be tight though

Gone Baby Gone and The Town were very well done. Argo looks like it could be pretty good as well. Wrote Good Will Hunting another really good flick. I know all those movies are completely different than superhero movies but he's 2\2 as a director and 3\3 with writing and a promising movie on the way.
