Following – arguably – the sole standout portion of Batman v Superman, Ben Affleck is set to be an executive producer on Justice League: Part One.
Affleck will work with director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio on the script and weigh in on post-production as well as starring as Batman.
Affleck has directing credits on Gone Baby Gone and The Town. He also produced, directed and starred in Argo which won him a best picture Oscar.
Terrio won the best original screenplay Academy Award for the same film.
This comes in addition to the announcement that Affleck will star in and direct a stand alone Batman film.
Snyder began shooting Justice League: Part One in April. The film is scheduled to be released on November 17, 2017, with Justice League Part Two set for June 14, 2019.
