Ben Affleck to direct "Justice League"
"With Christopher Nolan declaring himself out of the running for Justice League, Warner Bros. are reportedly trying to pin down Ben Affleck as the director of their shrouded-in-secrecy DC’s version of The Avengers…
…Affleck previously directed The Town for the studio and has the upcoming true story film Argo; on the other hand, Warner Bros. failed in their attempt to hire director George Miller.
Since Affleck recently said he’ll only direct films in which he also stars, which means if he does sign on as director, we can expect to see him starring as well."
