A day removed from Disney's announcement that Joss Whedon was returning to helm the sequel to The Avengers, Variety reports that Warner Bros. has approached Ben Affleck to see if he'd be willing to direct a Justice League feature.
Affleck directed WB's 2010 Oscar nominee The Town and has achieved critical success both in front of and behind the camera. Affleck has made it clear though that he's only interested in directing films in which he also stars, meaning if he were to helm a Justice League film, he'd be portraying one of the characters.
Variety speculates that Justice League wouldn't arrive in theaters until at least 2015, as the DC Comics movie line and WB gauge the success of next year's Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
Christopher Nolan has also previously said that he will "have nothing to do" with a Justice League movie, though he's credited as a producer on Man of Steel.
For now though, what are your thoughts on Affleck helming a Justice League movie? Do you think it's a good fit or should WB consider someone else?
