Injustice to All

Relating back to DC comics, I somehow I missed the news that there was a Justice League script floating around. Ben Affleck is apparently in the running to direct:


Thus far, Affleck is the only candidate who's been sent Will Beall's JUSTICE LEAGUE script, which the GANGSTER SQUAD scribe was hired to write last summer. DC Comics' answer to Marvel's Avengers, JUSTICE LEAGUE is expected to bring together marquee characters Batman and Superman, as well as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash. Affleck has made it clear that he's only interested in directing films in which he also stars -- THE TOWN and ARGO are proof of that -- so its likely that if this pairing ever came to fruition, he would don a suit of his own.

H/T Vulture.
