When it was announced earlier this year that Warner Bros. was looking to bring the Justice League of America comic team ensemble to the big screen, many of us had a ‘I will believe it when I see it’ response.
But recent news from Variety would indicate that the project will indeed get going sometime in the next year and that Daredevil might be the guy behind the camera calling the shots.
Variety reports that actor/director Ben Affleck is being eyed by the studio to bring the DC comic to life. The report details that Affleck was sent a copy of the Will Beall’s script in hopes to garner (hee hee, get it) his interest.
No release date has been set for the project, but due to the sheer size of the project, it would be 2015 at least before we see Batman, Superman, Aquaman and Wonder Woman band together to fight against a common enemy.

This is not a good sign. He took an awesome character like Daredevil and made him a lukewarm joke. The more I hear about this project, the more I'm thinking that the only good that will come of it is the introduction of the Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz) to the masses. I hope I'm proven wrong.
