Ben Affleck is taking on more than just Batman’s cape and cowl for the Justice League. Deadline 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.
