DC fans have woken up to a frenzy of escalating news about the future of their favorite characters after James Gunn, and Peter Safran took over as co-heads.
After Henry Cavill announced that he would not be reprising his role as Superman in the Man of Steel follow-up that James Gunn will write, now a potential name for the director has been revealed in the form of Ben Affleck.
Met with Ben yesterday precisely because he wanted to direct & they want him to direct; they just have to find the right project. James Gunn responded to a Twitter fan asking whether the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star could be the director.
The Oscar winner has directed several films in the past, including Live By Night (2016) and Argo (2012). Earlier, Ben Affleck had also planned to helm the standalone Batman movie, where he wanted to focus on building up the world's greatest detective aspect of The Batman.
Unfortunately, he couldn't narrow it down to a good script and passed on the baton to director Matt Reeves.
