Ben Affleck is a fan of Zack Snyder’s Justice League for the exact reason that it stands out among his other works, even in heavyweights like Argo, which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. The same is true among the pound cast.
Affleck reiterated his appreciation for Batman v Superman and the positive experience of working with Zack Snyder, which stands in stark contrast to the Justice League remake under the leadership of Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon. This level of toxicity is consistent with Ray Fisher’s allegations against Warner Bros. While the actual version that hit theaters doesn’t make up for the way they’ve been treated, at least the positive reception surrounding Zack Snyder’s Justice League is something the cast can, at the end of the day, be proud of.
Affleck, who said Zack Snyder’s Justice League is his highest-rated movie on IMDB, didn’t take the bait when The Hollywood Reporter tried to attribute its rave reviews to “rabid” fans. “Call it what you want, it’s the highest-rated movie of my career. I’ve never had anyone go from the bottom to the top. Retrospectively, it was a hit. All of a sudden, I was congratulated for being on the bomb ’” Still, sources inside Warner Bros. have suggested that Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a mistake, so for some viewers and fans, that might not give Warner Bros. much confidence in DC’s approach.
Affleck responded to this frustration by expressing his interest in directing “Gunn DC” because of how they’re doing it. “Absolutely not,” Affleck said, “I’m not interested in it.” This contradicts certain statements by James Gunn, who previously said Affleck wanted to direct a DCU movie. Either way, it’s refreshing to see Affleck speak for himself and stop clinging to studio pressure. Affleck is an Academy Award-winning director, writer, and actor, so for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it’s high on his list of best-reviewed works, which is illustrated in the landscape of superhero movies A lot, otherwise these films would be formulaic successes because of them.
Justice League went from being criticized to being positively received thanks to the release of the director’s real-life version, which may be one of the reasons why Affleck unexpectedly gained recognition outside of the fanbase. Affleck also said that he finally nailed his role as Batman in The Flash, reiterating a previous statement expressing how it feels to finally figure out “how to play that character.” Between his work on Batman v Superman, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and The Flash, Affleck can express admiration for his time as Batman, especially compared to his other fantastic films like Argo. Than, he has an 8 out of 10 on IMDB and The Town, a 7.7 and 7.5 on IMDB respectively.
