Ben Affleck directing the DC movie? Here’s What James Gunn Reveals

Since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios as co-directors, there’s been a huge flurry of updates. After Henry Cavill announced that he would not be returning as Superman, it was rumored that Ben Affleck, who played Batman in the DCEU, could direct an upcoming movie.

Director James Gunn recently caught up with Ben Affleck and the idea for the actor to direct a DC movie popped up. Responding to a question from a fan on Twitter, Gunn revealed: “Meet Ben yesterday precisely because he wanted to direct and we wanted him to direct; we just need to find the right project.”


Ben Affleck has directed quite a few films including Argo, Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Live By Night.
