Ben Affleck now executive producer for ‘Justice League’

Warner Bros has made change to the Justice League braintrust, now giving Ben Affleck the role of executive producer as well his co-starring role as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

The studio is likely trying to tap into the writing-directing efforts Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo, the latter of which won the Best Picture Oscar for Warner Bros

Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman Dawn of JusticeDeadline notes that “I’m told that Affleck is doing this to be supportive of Snyder, with whom he worked well on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which grossed $864 million worldwide despite not being beloved by the critics. Warner Bros is still figuring out its stylistic superhero mojo, and Affleck will help. Justice League is slotted for a November 17, 2017 release, and Affleck’s Batman is expected to be paired alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and likely Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.”

 Up next for Affleck is directing and starring in his scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel Live By Night for an October 20, 2017 release by Warner Bros. Affleck will also be teaming with comic book creator Geoff Johns to write a standalone Batman film that Affleck will star in and direct.
