Ben Affleck Excited For Justice League Movie; Would Do Another Superhero Film

Body

4808 Ben Affleck was one of the many names rumored to direct the Justice League movie, which was eventually shot down.

Now, Affleck in a recent interview with HitFix wants to make it clear that he was never in contention to direct the movie, as he doesn't like the bad press it could bring.

I just want to make it clear because it’s not like I had something to even pass on. Because someone will eventually do 'Justice League' and they'll go, like, 'Ben Affleck passed on it,' and it won't be true. So I don’t mind setting the record straight.

Affleck also is excited for the Justice League movie and compares it to The Avengers.

I think there’s a DC 'Avengers' that could be done because they have the characters for it. And there’s some stuff in the comics now that’s kind of interesting, and it’s cool. 

While Affleck is not on Justice League, would he direct a superhero movie? As long as the script is good, he doesn't rule it out.

I would love it. My interest is really just in, you know, if I like the characters and if the stories seem smart and surprise me. The things that people look for. So those things exist in the superhero genre. And when they do, I think it’s really exciting. I think they exist in the science-fiction genre. If you look at 'Blade Runner' to 'Alien' to 'Aliens' on down through today. So it’s just about finding a good script, honestly. I wouldn’t be into something or not based on the genre.
