Warner Bros Wanted Ben Affleck To Direct Justice League & Play Batman

El Mayibe from Latino Review tweeted a very interesting 'Fun & Fabulous Fanboy Fact Of The Day' earlier. He claims that not only did Warner Bros want Ben Affleck to direct Justice League, but they also wanted him to star in it... as Batman. (Ben Affleck, Cinema, Justice League)

i think he would make a great director! not much of a superhero but great director! HOWEVER i can see him play the green lantern though! i think that role would suit him

I find it funny how this guy was Daredevil. Yes that horrible Daredevil movie which you tried to forget.

Still, he's got the looks of a Bruce Wayne, the directorial ability of a superher-film maker, but can he be Batman?

I think he would make a great director and is a great actor but no super-hero... he lacks of darkness like Bruce Wayne

I can actually see it though. Oddly enough. He would be more like the 90's cartoon Batman, I think he could do that well. Laid back, more about detective skills. It wouldn't be Bales batman.

I don't think its a good idea to have him act and direct, in fact thats a bit stupid. Kinda shows WB is probably going to totally bomb this movie....

EXACTLY. He would be Batman TAS Batman and Bruce Wayne.

Most people were saying "Dude from 10 things I hate about you?" when Heath Ledger was rumored to play the Joker.

NAH like someone further up said he could fit the GL role really well.

Why not let have Joss Whedon or Zack Snyder do the Justice League Movie, I think they are great directors. I think they should definitely stick with Christian Bale as Batman since many people is already use to him as being Batman.
