When it was announced Ben Affleck signed on to play Batman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s safe to say most Batman fans were horrified. The rage taking over the internet was incredible. People were saying and doing all sorts of crazy things.
The people who were disgusted by this news cited Affleck’s performance in the terrible Daredevil movie as proof he can’t handle playing a superhero. But Ben Affleck wants you all to know that Daredevil can’t even compete with Batman v Superman. During an interview with NPR, the 42-year-old actor said the following…
“Indeed I have regrets about ‘Daredevil.’ I have regrets about all the movies that I don’t think were executed properly. Look, if I thought we were remaking ‘Daredevil,’ I’d be out there picketing myself … and that goes for other movies as well that I haven’t been happy with. You know, I’m hard on myself and I have exacting standards and I want to do excellent work and I don’t always succeed, but I think you have to start out with that drive.”
He also talked a little bit about the magnificent director behind the film, Zack Snyder, “It’s directed by Zack Snyder, who’s a incredibly magical sort of visual stylist who’s steeped in the comic world.” He explained.
You see, folks? Everything is going to be okay. Stop shoving electronic devices up your butt. Batman v Superman will be incredible.
