Ben Affleck Promoted to ‘Justice League’ Executive Producer

The ‘Batman v Superman’ actor will work alongside director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio behind the scenes.

Ben Affleck has been promoted to become executive producer for “Justice League Part One”. The actor-turned-filmmaker, who is already set to co-star in the highly-anticipated DC superhero movie, will work alongside Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio behind the scenes.

According to Deadline, Ben is doing this to be supportive of Zack, with whom he worked well on “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, which already grossed $864 million worldwide. The “Gone Girl” actor will help Warner Bros. figure out its stylistic superhero mojo.

Sources tell THR that Ben will help Chris fine-tune the script and also inform the post-production process.

“Justice League Part One”, starring Ben, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, J.K. Simmons, Jeremy Irons and Willem Dafoe, is set to hit U.S. theaters on November 17, 2017.

Following “Justice League”, Ben will star in and direct a standalone Batman movie. He will also make an appearance in upcoming supervillain flick “Suicide Squad”, hitting theaters on August 6.
