Ben Affleck Taking on a Bigger Role in the DCCU

This March we saw Ben Affleck don the cowl for the first time in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Deadline reports that Warner Brothers has made a small change to the brain trust for Justice League Part One and Two, that change being that Ben Affleck will join as executive producer as well as costar. He will join Zach Snyder and screen writer Chris

Terrio developing this superhero world, Ben has worked well with both men in the past. Terrio wrote the script for not only Batman V Superman, but also Argo. Though we have all seen Ben in front of the camera for more than 20 years, his two Oscars come from behind the scenes work. The first he won with Matt Damon for best original
screen play for the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, the second for directing Argo. The combination of Snyder, Terrio, and Affleck should create a pretty solid starting point for this batch of movies that are coming our way!

Affleck will follow this up with writing, directing, and starring in the solo Batman film. So many people were terrified of Batfleck, but if that doesn’t just scream Batman I don’t know what does. If Bruce Wayne was making a story about himself there is no doubt in my mind that he would not let anyone else be a part of it!

Justice League Part One is currently in production and is set to be released November 17th, 2017.
