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.''

Is The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

Aug 19 2014 2:04pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Superhero Report has posted a Twitpic that has us thinking that The Flash will be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Given the title, we all know that the Man of Steel sequel is more of a set-up for a Justice League movie than a true follow up to the film that introduced us to Henry Cavill as Superman. We know that Cavill’s Superman is joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and a seri ...

David Fincher Offers a Hilariously Confusing Clarification on the Ending of GONE GIRL

Aug 14 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: Collider

There are very few films I’m looking forward to this year as much as Gone Girl.  Not only am I a huge fan of director David Fincher,I love the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name.  The film stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  Fincher made a big splash earlier this year when he claimed that the ending had been completely changed, stating that he had “started from scratch.”  This upset some die-ha ...

New BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Rumors Reveal Ending Details, Timeline, and Luthor’s Plan [Spoilers, Obviously]

Aug 14 2014 9:50am CDT | Source: Collider

Filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been underway for over a month now, and the production has done a good job thus far at keeping leaked photos and videos to a minimum.  I assume some of that it just because they haven't done much outdoor shooting, but all we've really seen so far is Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, which looks like Ben Affleck with slightly graying temples.  Beyond that, there's been a statue, some rubble, and Zack Snyder calling a ...
