Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has approached Ben Affleck to direct its DC Comics superhero team-up Justice League, but don't get too excited just yet: In-house helmer Affleck is the first director WB goes to for almost all of its marquee projects, from Gangster Squad to The Stand, and Affleck already proved Superman-averse when WB offered him Man of Steel, a directing gig he turned down. Still, if you want to fantasy-cast Jennifer Garner as Wonder Woman and Matt Damon as Aquaman, now's the time!
