Done and done. I don't think there can be a greater threat.
In that case, let's be serious.

Since Hollywood likes to turn giant comic villains into space clouds (Rise of the Silver Surfer, Green Lantern), why not use Kronos ala JLA/Avengers, so at least the space cloud BS actually comes from the comic this time?

time jumping might as well mean world jumping if the tech is similar enough?

There's been a few comics where the time crooks gather and he always seems put out about being the low man on the totem pole.

And with that any hope of this being good is lost.

Why? Gone Baby Gone and The town indicate that he's a solid director, he's an Oscar-winning writer and experienced producer as well.

He's a very credible talent.

And with that you prove that you have no idea what you're talking about.

The article says that Affleck also wants to star in films he directs, though, so I can see that hampering things unless he decides not to star in JL.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Call me cautious.
Directors have been handed comic book film reins before who had no more solid proof their resume had them ready for the task than Affleck does.

It's a fine line to walk though. You can look at majority of the successful films and say that a "fit" seemed obvious.
Singer on X-Men seemed good after great character ensemble with Usual Suspects and drama of Apt Pupil.
Branagh on Thor sounded great as soon as I heard it.
Johnston on Captain America.
Whedon on Avengers.

The only three that didn't immediatly sound right and turned out great were Raimi on Spider-man and Favreau on Iron Man. I really didn't look at Nolan's resume and instantly think that the guy who did Memento was a lock to give us great Batman films.

Tim Story on Fantastic Four was a mixed bag.
Ratner on X-Men 3 was questionable.
Mark Johnson on Daredevil and Ghost Rider were mixed results.

So Affleck on a JLA film....I'm iffy on the thought.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I'm not sure why people are rolling their eyes at Affleck (here and elsewhere). He has a solid track record as a director. Indeed, at this point, he's already directed as many feature films as Joss Whedon had when he tackled The Avengers. And has at least one Oscar for screenwriting.

And, as Captain Craig pointed out, John Favreau was not an obvious choice for IRON MAN, but . . .

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Judging by previous interviews I've read with Affleck, there's no chance whatsoever he'll want to do this.

He has no interest in the mainstream, popcorny stuff anymore and prefers making interesting, arty films now.
