Ben Affleck Gets Promotion for Justice League

Ben Affleck has been made an executive producer on Justice League: Part One.

The actor, who will be starring in the film as Bruce Wayne/Batman, has apparently been given the promotion in the wake of the reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The superhero epic has so far taken just over $864 million worldwide, which is by no means a disappointing return, is not the box office smash that DC and Warner Bros. were expecting.

And it may have been that disappointing reaction that led to Affleck’s increased role in the film’s production. BirthMoviesDeath is reporting that the actor was left “humiliated” following his repeated insistence during press for the movie that it would be better than Daredevil, his last foray into the superhero world. Additionally, Affleck’s agent was reportedly furious that Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed that the actor would star in and direct a solo Batman outing, when the negotiations for Affleck’s roles were still ongoing.

The website goes on to claim that making Affleck executive producer of Justice League is a way of placating the actor, while also making a move to “edge Zack Snyder out of a controlling position” in the DC movie universe. Rumours continue to mount that some at Warner have lost faith in the director following the poor reviews for Dawn of Justice.

Justice League: Part One is currently shooting, with a November 2017 release scheduled.
