Affleck connected to Justice League

9 August 2012

Ben Affleck's spokesperson has denied rumours he'll be directing comic book blockbuster Justice League.

The Oscar-winning actor-director has apparently been approached by Warner Brothers to take control of the forthcoming movie featuring DC Universe's super-hero all-star team including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash, Variety reports.

But according to Deadline, Ben's spokesperson has denied the rumours, stating that he has no plans to take the job.

Christopher Nolan had previously been attached to direct, but insisted: "I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project."

Ben - who won an Oscar for his performance in Good Will Hunting, and starred in Armageddon, Smokin' Aces and Pearl Harbour - has directed three feature-length films: Gone Baby Gone featuring his brother Casey Affleck, crime drama The Town and the upcoming political thriller Argo.
