Ben Affleck Finally Admits ‘Daredevil’ Is His Biggest Career Mistake
Ben Affleck sat down with Playboy Magazine for the start of his 60th birthday celebration and talked about past regrets and playing Batman and past regrets.
It’s clear a lot of fans were upset when the ‘Argo’ actor was announced to be reprising the role of Christian Bale’s Bat in the ‘Batman/Superman’ movie due to his past performance in 2003’s ‘Daredevil’.
Well, Affleck hears you loud and clear. He eventually admits he wasn’t happy with the Marvel movie either.
Film and pop culture site Latino Review got its hands on an early copy of the lengthy interview before the magazine hit store shelves where Affleck describes how the superhero movie was his biggest mistake career and how to play the Caped Crusader can be a way to catch up with the movie.
“The only movie I really regret is Daredevil. It kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that he f—– like that stays with me. Maybe that’s part of the motivation to do Batman.”
And to all Batfleck haters, Affleck defended himself for Batman:
“If I thought the result would be another Daredevil, I’d be picketing myself. [laughs] Why would I make the movie if I didn’t think it was going to be good and I could be good in it?”
