Ben Affleck Takes Bigger Role in Justice League

Ben Affleck is taking on more than just Batman’s cape and cowl for the Justice LeagueDeadline reports that Warner Bros. had named Affleck the executive producer for the film. Affleck’s role in Warner Bros. DC Universe continues to grow after starring as the Caped Crusader in this year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Deadline reports Affleck will work alongside Justice League director Zack Snyder and the writing team. Despite big box office numbers, Batman V Superman was not well received by critics and the hope is adding Affleck as an executive producer will help improve Justice League. Affleck will also appear as Batman in the Suicide Squad this fall and is set to co-write, star in and direct a solo Batman film. Production of Justice League is underway and it’s slated to hit movie theaters in November 17, 2017.

By day, I am the Multimedia Manager for a major infrastructure project. By night, I am a sports loving, pop culture addicted, craft beer swirling, technology enhanced father of 3 small super heroes. I was a TV news producer for nearly 15 years, but I have a passion for writing. It’s a passion that is only matched by what my wife calls my uncanny ability to maintain a brain full of (mostly useless) facts about sports, beer and comic book-based movies & TV.
