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.''

Aaron Sorkin Says Christian Bale Will Be in Every Frame of the Steve Jobs Film

Oct 23 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

We thought Christian Bale was a pretty solid choice to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming movie, but it turns out we weren’t half as excited as writer Aaron Sorkin is. Calling Bale “the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin expressed his confidence that Bale would “crush it” as the late tech guru — in a role that is particularly difficult, and present in every single moment of the film. ...

Oct 20 2014 2:24pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

This week in "Robert Downey Jr. is incredible" news, the actor received a grand-scale gift from Marvel last week: the 30-foot-tall 'A' that was left on the ruins of Stark Enterprises at the end of The Avengers, to signal the coming of the Avengers Tower. RDJ, like many Hollywood actors and actresses, collects set pieces as memoirs from his films. Unlike Ben Affleck, who was told that taking home the Batsuit from Batman v.

Jason Momoa Dishes Aquaman: “I Don't Have to be Quiet Anymore”

Oct 20 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We’ve thought Jason Momoa would be Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for some time, but it was never truly announced. Whenever the actor was asked about, he was coy with his response and it was one of the great mystery of the DC Comics-Warner Bros. world. But now that DC Comics and Warner Bros. have announced a superhero slate through 2020 that includes a solo Aquaman movie, Momoa is free to not only admit that he is Aquaman, but he can share his thoughts and clear ...

Robert Downey Jr. Took Home the ‘Avengers’ ‘A’ After Asking For It as a Joke

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: slash film

It’s not unheard of for actors to take home souvenirs from their projects — whether by stealing props from the set, buying them from the production company, or receiving them as gifts. But Robert Downey Jr.‘s memento from The Avengers definitely ranks up there in terms of uniqueness. Downey reportedly received the 30-foot-tall “A” from the Stark Tower shot at the end of the 2012 movie, after asking for it ...
