Warner Bros.’s planned Justice League movie may have finally found a director, and they didn’t get just one – they got the Matrix’s directing duo Andy and Lana Wachowski, who are both fresh off their ambitious book adaptation, Cloud Atlas.
It has been reported that Warner Bros. is so thrilled with the duo’s work that they are now being seriously considered for the directorial seat in WB’s Justice League movie. The previous name put forward, Ben Affleck, has already confirmed that he won’t be directing the film, contrary to rumors that spread around.
“I’m not working on the Justice League,” Affleck said. “One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that’s how rumours get started.”
“Justice League sounds really exciting, but it’s not something I’m working on,” Afflec adds.
Scripting duties for the Justice League movie is currently handled by Will Beall, and is reportedly written to include Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, and the Flash.
