If you've been following the Ben Affleck news beat recently, you're likely aware that the actor/director has generated quite a bit of early awards buzz for his latest project, "Argo." Now, because of all this buzz about yet another successful turn in the director's chair, Affleck's name was recently mentioned as being on the short list of directors that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment had approached about directing the long-developing other all-star superhero film "Justice League."

When MTV News caught up with Affleck, we asked for his thoughts on those early rumblings, and he gave us a delightfully in-depth response about "Justice League," the "Daredevil" experience and his future with superheroics onscreen.

"What happens is that there's a lot of bloggers and Internet interest around superhero movies, so there's regularly a rumor that comes up. Obviously [with regard to] 'Justice League,' once 'Avengers' happened, they think, 'Well, it would be crazy not to make "Justice League," ' and I'm sure they will," Affleck explained of the genesis of that particular rumor. "I guess I should be flattered, and I'm sure it will be cool. I've seen some of the stuff from the new 'Superman' movie, and that stuff is awesome. I think they took a really cool, real approach to Superman, which no one has done before, so if that trend continues, I'm sure 'Justice League' will be great."

We then asked Affleck if, given his prior experience in 2003's "Daredevil," he'd be game to take on a different comic book, particularly since that genre has evolved so much in recent years.

"I would if there was one I liked. I had a negative experience with the one comic book I liked, it was just a movie that didn't work," Affleck said. "It's such a shame, because, first of all, 'Daredevil' [is] a great book, great idea, and then right after that, they figured out that it was better to make the movies good, and then they started making them cool and investing in them," he said. "I felt like I was in the 1930s with that outfit, the trousers: 'Hey, chum, hold up there! This fella's trying to rob a bank!' " he joked of his turn as the blind guardian angel.

"It was a drag, but I did love it as a kid, and they're rebooting it. I got contacted about it, and I was like, 'That wouldn't be a reboot [if I was involved],' but I really hope they do a good job, because that's a great property and deserves something really, really good," he continued, adding that we shouldn't cross his name off any prospective superhero movie lists just yet.

"I would love to do [a comic book movie] if it was the right one, if I thought I could do it well," Affleck said. "I think you have to, with any movie, have an idea for it that's original and unique and committed to it, and that's a hard thing to find."
