“I keep working on him, he’s always said he’s a one movie at a time guy. He’s finishing editing his film, Live By Night, and then he comes to Justice League and then after that, I think he’s going to try and develop the story. Then we’ll see if he likes it.”
It's difficult to say whether or not DC Comics will fully invest their film industry future in Ben Affleck.
