A day after the wondrous news of Joss Whedon being given the Marvel Film and TV reins by Disney, Warner Brothers is rumored to be flirting with a director for Justice League.
And it’s Ben Affleck. Um… ok?
I have no problem with Oscarbait, as long as it’s good. Ben Affleck’s latest film is further proof that he had no business trying to be the It Man of Hollywood blockbusters and rom coms. Instead of making shitburger after shitburger, his Gone Baby Gone, and The Town, showcased that the man can direct the hell out of a film, even if it’s fairly standard by plot. He’s been reminiscent of Eastwood with his film direction, and even his acting has improved. That being said, I think Argo has the potential to be very good.
