James Gunn has confirmed that preliminary meetings with Ben Affleck have taken place about the former caped crusader directing a new DC project
This is a monumental day for the DC Universe. Just minutes after James Gunn revealed that Henry Cavill will not be returning as Superman in the new DC Universe, the new head of DC Studios confirmed that preliminary talks with Ben Affleck had taken place. Not to return as Batman, however. Instead, Gunn and his partner Peter Safran have approached the former caped crusader about directing a future DC project – when something suitable arises.
Met with Ben yesterday precisely because he wants to direct & we want him to direct; we just have to find the right project. https://t.co/Haz1APdlVN

But which superhero could he bring to the screen? That remains to be seen. But with the future of the DC landscape reforming as we speak, the sky is the limit for Affleck’s next project.
Which DC superhero would you like to see Affleck bring to the screen? Sound off below.
