"I just want to make it clear because it's not like I had something to even pass on," he told HitFix. "Because someone will eventually do Justice League and they'll go, like, 'Ben Affleck passed on it', and it won't be true.

"So I don't mind setting the record straight. It's one of those things where the closest I came was some people talked to me about it like at a meeting. They were like, 'Here's the stuff we're doing', you know? 'Here's what we're looking at'. That kind of thing. And they suggested it. But I don't think there's a script. I don't think there's anything."

The Argo helmer was previously rumoured to be attached to direct the DC Comics adaptation. The Wachowskis have also been mentioned in connection to the role.

Affleck added that he is interested to see how Warner Bros handles its 2015 Justice League film.

"I think there's a DC Avengers that could be done because they have the characters for it," he said.

"But for shooting these kind of satellite movies with the notion that later on you'll build the planet that they're orbiting around, and coordinating it all ahead of time, and imagining how the story's going to work and flow with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, it's a big deal.

"You don't see that level of organisation much in movies. You know what I mean? It's like, enough to just get one movie together and off the ground."

Affleck recently downplayed rumours that he would run for the senate.
