Ben Affleck Is Determined To Make You Forget 'Batman vs. Superman'

Ben Affleck began the year with the massively disappointing Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (though, the disappointment was not the fault of Affleck). The Argo director, however, is determined not to go down like he did last time with a series of flops that derailed his career. Looking to boost his career prospects, he has in recent days highlighted that Deathstroke — played by Joe Mangienello — will be in his Batman reboot, and he’s obviously hoping that Justice League will help us forget about Dawn of Justice.

In the meantime, Affleck hasn’t given up on his more serious projects. He’s announced that he will star in and direct an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, Witness for the Prosecution, he’ll be in The Accountant this fall, and in January, Live by Night — which he adapted from a Dennis Lehane novel, directed, and starred in — will arrive in theaters.

Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper and Scott Eastwood also star in the film, and while the January release date may be cause for some concern, it’s also the same weekend that other Oscar winners and contenders like American Sniper were released, after a token release into one or two theaters before the end of the year for Oscar consideration.

Also, that mustache does not work for Chris Messina.
