Ben Affleck denies Justice League snub

Dec 21 2012, 12:53pm CST | by

Ben Affleck has denied snubbing the chance to direct 'Justice League'.

The 'Argo' filmmaker and actor insists he was never seriously approached to helm Warner Bros' hotly-anticipated superhero team-up movie and claims the upcoming 2015 film is still in its early stages.

He told HitFix: ''I don't mind setting the record straight. It's one of those things where the closest I came was some people talked to me about it like at a meeting.

''They were like, 'Here's the stuff we're doing', you know? 'Here's what we're looking at'. That kind of thing. And they suggested it. But I don't think there's a script. I don't think there's anything.''

The Hollywood star is nevertheless intrigued to see how the ambitious film pans out and expects it will be a very tricky job to mesh all the universes created in the various Marvel comic book adaptations into one film.

Ben said: ''Shooting these kind of satellite movies with the notion that later on you'll build the planet that they're orbiting around, and coordinating it all ahead of time, and imagining how the story's going to work and flow with 'Iron Man', 'Thor', 'Captain America', it's a big deal.

''You don't see that level of organisation much in movies. You know what I mean? It's like, enough to just get one movie together and off the ground.''

Petition: Support the Creation of a Black Panther movie by Marvel Studios!

Aug 26 2014 5:41pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Black Panther is a strong, moral superhero that nearly everyone agrees would make an amazing film, and better yet, an amazing addition to the Avengers films. Why hasn't Marvel Studios done a film for him yet? Sequel films take priority over new characters because sequels sell. How do we get the film made then? We help Marvel Studios realize how much more successful a Black Panther film could be than another Thor movie would.Toda ...

Aug 23 2014 4:33am CDT | Source: movie pilot

There's no doubt that Scoot McNairy is a fantastic actor. But the guy is known mainly for his dramatic roles in smaller films. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is his first foray in to blockbuster territory. And this film is huge! This is rumored [all but confirmed!] to be the most expensive superhero film ever put to screen ever, with 135 million to be spent for production in Detroit alone. Addi ...
