Suddenly I wish Ben Affleck was still involved. Screen Rant is reporting that other people are reporting that other people are saying that… wait, I got confused. Anyway, the latest rumors are that with Affleck officially out of consideration for the Justice League directors chair, the field may be opening up to greater heights of mediocrity like Man of Steel director Zack Snyder, Irish rapper turned director McG, and Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer who also directed Justice League writer (phase one) Will Beals‘ last film, Gangster Squad. Fleischer also produced MTV’s Rob and Big and Fantasy Factory, meaning if he got the gig, Rob Drydek would be a shoe-in for the role of Martian Manhunter. Ah… it’s funnier because I really don’t know who the fuck he is and I can’t figure out why he’s on my TV.
Anyway, aside from Fleischer, this list is really very bad but I really haven’t told you the worst part… Brett “Eye-Fucker” Ratner is allegedly on the short list as well, which means that I’m pretty sure Olivia Munn is not being considered for Wonder Woman. We take you live(ish) to a re-enactment of the collective nerd response to the “news” of Ratner’s potential involvement in the Justice League project. Honestly, isn’t this the kind of thing that the Justice League is supposed to protect us from?
