The actor turned writer and director is reportedly being courted by Warner Bros for the all-star DC Comics superhero project, which would be set against Marvel's rival 'The Avengers'.

So far, his representatives have denied his involvement, but Variety reports that he's met with the studio to discuss the project.

While the Marvel superhero 'supergroup' features Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, the Justice League is made up of the likes of Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

A script for the film has been written by Will Beall, who's just completed all-star period mob flick 'Gangster Squad'.

It will follow Affleck previous flirtations with spandex, after he played 'Daredevil' in 2003 and then in 'Hollywoodland' the role of George Reeves, the man who played Superman in the 1950s on US TV whose death was declared suicide despite some suspicious circumstances.
