Ben Affleck says he is 'not working on the Justice League'
In what could only be good news for fans of superhero movies, we have to point out that Ben Affleck is denying reports he's going to direct an upcoming Justice League movie. Nothing personal, Ben, but after Daredevil, you shouldn't go anywhere near any other comic-book characters.
"I'm not working on the Justice League. One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that's how rumours get started," he told Canadian website 24 Hours Vancouver. "Justice League sounds really exciting, but it's not something I'm working on."
That’s not to say he won’t be getting any offers now that he’s called it “really exciting,” natch. But seeing as how he and wife (erstwhile Elektra) Jennifer Garner are likely banned from any Marvel productions, DC is all he has left. He pulled off former Superman George Reeves pretty well in Hollywoodland, didn't he?
