Ben Affleck - 8 Great Movies Ben Affleck will star in next

Ben Affleck – 8 Great Movies Ben Affleck will star in next


If you’ve been living under a rock then the news that Ben Affleck is the next Batman will probably come as a shock to you now. Well, get used to it. The news has had an immense reaction on the internet both positive and negative (mostly negative). The disastrous Daredevil days are over and Ben has certainly redeemed himself since then. People have compared the reaction to him being Batman similar to the reaction people had with Heath Ledger being the Joker, and we all know how that turned out. So there may still be hope…

We thought it wise to keep an eye on the next 8 Great Movies Ben Affleck will star in next.

His latest movie since the amazing Argo was “To the Wonder” which slipped past most movie goers. Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams, and Olga Kurylenko starred in a romance written and directed by Terrence Malick. Affleck plays a man whose feelings get caught between his foreign wife, played by Kurylenko, and his high-school sweetheart, played by McAdams.

Ben Affleck will undoubtedly be a busy man between his acting and directing careers. Some of these movies have already been pushed back, and others may never happen…

This was Affleck’s next scheduled directorial movie, but since his selection as Bruce Wayne it got pushed back.   It looks like Affleck will make “Gone Girl,” shoot “Superman Vs. Batman” from February to August next year, and in that time, gear up pre-production on the Prohibition saga “Live By Night” for a fall 2014 shoot.  Live by Night is based on the Dennis Lehane novel. Set in the roaring 1920s, the story follows Joe Coughlin, whose father is a Boston police captain, as he turns to the life of a mobster and moves up the ranks of organized crime.

Arizona will probably be pushed back a bit as there is very little info about this movie, apart from Ben Affleck that will direct. Arizona is the true-life story of journalist Don Bolles. He was killed by a car bomb in 1976 for investigating organized crime infiltrating Arizona state government.



6. Nathan Decker

Starring: Ben Affleck
Director: Unknown
Release Date: Unknown

Warner Brothers picked up the script by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love) about a year ago with Tom Cruise as its probable lead actor. Cruise has since fallen off the project, so Warners approached Affleck. The studio is looking to hire a director. The story centers on a politician who is caught in an affair and returns to his home town to face his past.



7. Batman vs Superman

Starring: Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck
Director: Unknown
Release Date: 2015

Batman vs Superman

The big one. The blockbuster that is set to break just about every box office record to date. After the news was first released at this years comic-con, the speculation has been rife on who would be the next Batman, when shooting will commence, and when it will be released. What we know thus far (apart from Ben Affleck being the chosen “older” Batman) is that shooting will start February 2014 until August 2014. Which means the movie is set for a 2015 release date. That’s a long wait…



8. Justice League

Starring: Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman
Director: Possibly Ben Affleck
Release Date: Unknown

Justice League

Justice League

If we remove all the rumors flying around about this movie then we have very little to go with. Ben Affleck’s announcement as the new Batman may have been part of the deal to sit him behind the lens as the helmer, anyway, more rumors. As for a release date, we can possibly expect this after the Batman vs Superman movie.   Dark Knight and Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer will be writing the script for the Justice League movieExpect Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and Green Lantern to be part of this.
