Coming literally the day after Disney/Marvel thrilled us with the news that Joss Whedon will return for Avengers 2 and develop a live-action television show, Warner Bros./DC Comics (not to be outdone!) has underwhelmed us by (reportedly) courting Ben Affleck to direct Justice League.
Okay, yeah. “Underwhelmed” is probably not strong enough of a term. To general moviegoers, Affleck might be a pretty successful and recognizable actor and filmmaker. For comic book fans? We’re talking about the guy who starred in Daredevil.
Swing and a miss?
What’s really frustrating about his is that DC actually does know how to make films… they’re just all animated.
