Ben Affleck has been promoted to executive producer for Warner ‘s ‘Justice League’ film.
Ben Affleck Gets A Promotion
He will work closely with screenwriter Chris Terrio (Argo, Batman v Superman) and is still being directed by Zack Snyder. The advancement was said to help placate Affleck after the disappointing critical review of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It also gave the actor/producer “a controlling central position in the DC Movieverse” and a key role in the post production process.
In spite of being critically panned, Batman v Superman grossed $864 million worldwide. It seems that critics (and fans) prefer a more-lighthearted approach to super hero movies, like Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War and the raunchy-comedy/melodrama Deadpool. Warner Bros are said to be responding to the trend.
