Though some are sure to disagree, Ben Affleck ultimately proved his doubters wrong with his interpretation of The DCEU's Dark Knight, so there was a lot of disappointment when he decided to hang up the cape and cowl following what he described as a "difficult" time working on the Justice League.
Affleck did return to shoot additional scenes for the "Snyder Cut," and will appear in The Flash for what's believed to be a small role for his take on the Caped Crusader, but that will most likely mark the end of his tenure with DC Studios - in front of the camera, at least!
Affleck was in line to direct the movie that would ultimately become The Batman before Matt Reeves took over, and we had heard rumors that he was speaking to the studio about possibly helming a different project.
Now, James Gunn has confirmed that talks have indeed taken place.
"We're working with Ben Affleck, who really wants to be a part of our architecture team, trying to bring things together. And he really wants to direct one of our projects and we're looking forward to him doing that."
The DC Studios boss didn't reveal which projects Affleck may be looking at, but there's already speculation that he could be in negotiations to helm the Brave and the Bold movie that's currently in-development.
