With Ben Affleck a definite no for Warner’s Justice League film, directorial speculation is likely to blow up right about … now. The Matrix auteurs Lana and Andy Wachowski are reportedly on a short list of candidates. “Warner Bros. are apparently jazzed with Cloud Atlas, and love that it’s as much a spectacle as it is a showcase for the immense ensemble involved, so it makes sense the W’s are under consideration,” Moviehole writes. An Avengers-sized project wouldn’t seem to jive with the timeline for the Wachowskis’ ambitious Jupiter Ascending, but it’s interesting to consider. The pair made some decent-sized waves with that homegrown superhero of theirs, Neo — imagine if they get their hands on Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman?
