Ben Affleck Was Approached to Direct Flashpoint Movie

Ben Affleck Was Approached to Direct Flashpoint Movieā€

They also wrote and directed 2015's "Vacation", before penning last year's "Spider-Man", which earned more than $880 million worldwide.

I really liked the way Spider-Man: Homecoming was handled, so I'm alright with the choice of having Daley and Goldstein coming onboard.

Variety initially reported the news of Daley and Goldstein's potential involvement and, in their original article, state that Ben Affleck was also reportedly offered the gig, but passed.

After a long search, the DCEU's Flashpoint movie has a director. DC and Warner Bros. are now gearing up for the standalone release of The Flash's fellow "Justice League" teammember "Aquaman". Previously, Chris Miller and Phil Lord, Seth Grahame-Smith, and Rick Famuyiwa were all at one time attached to direct, after which time names like Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, and Sam Raimi were being bandied about. We don't know yet just how the film will fit into the post-Justice League timeline, but rumors persist that it will be something of a soft reboot for the universe, perhaps offering an opportunity to recast Batman or other central characters.

And though we've heard rumors that Warner Bros. has soured on his involvement in the DC cinematic universe moving forward, how accurate can those reports be if they approached Affleck to direct the Flashpoint movie?

It was announced back at San Diego Comic-Con previous year that the movie would be based on the Flashpoint comic book story.

If everything comes together, the film - starring Ezra Miller - is likely to be in cinemas in 2020, but it doesn't have an official release date at this time. More than half of the Justice League (Ray Fisher's Cyborg, Affleck's Batman, and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman) is rumored to return, with Affleck possibly making this his Batsuited curtain call.
