A couple of days ago saw the release of a new Justice League team image, and now while promoting Live By Night, Ben Affleck talks Batman and Justice League on Jimmy Kimmel.

"I made that look pretty good," Affleck replied when Jimmy Kimmel questioned if it was in the contract to make Batman look the most muscular in the Justice League image. "It's not bad."

Ben Affleck also confirms he will direct the Batman movie. 

"I am going to direct the next Batman. We are working on it," Affleck said nodding his head yes. "It's one of those things that's really frustrating because Live By Night took me a year and a half to write it and get it ready, and I worked really hard. It's just nobody gave a sh-it. No one was like, 'Where is Live By Night!' But it's Batman and they're like, "Where's the f'n Batman?!'

"Woah! I'm working! Give me a second" Affleck said.
