Well, this would make sense, wouldn’t it?
Affleck, no matter how you feel about Batman V Superman, is universally praised for his work as Batman/Bruce Wayne and throw in the fact that he’s got a Best Picture Oscar under his belt for Warners with Argo and it’s really not surprising that the studio entrusts the story – and movie – to him.
He knows what he’s at.
The report is coming from Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzalez, who says that Affleck and Geoff Johns have full creative control with Affleck writing, directing and starring.
So what does that mean for the movie? Well many will be excited to hear that it means Zack Snyder and Charles Roven will not be involved at all and Affleck, a self proclaimed comics fan, will get to tell the story he wants to tell with Johns helping out along the way.
This is very exciting news, if true, for the movie… while we fight in Batman V Superman’s corner, we know this will probably make a lot of fans very happy indeed.
Are you among them?
