Daredevil actor Ben Affleck has revealed that his poor experience with the superhero movie has not put him off in the slightest. The 2003 movie was slated but Ben admits that he would love to star in another comic book movie, if it was original and compelling.
Affleck explained to MTV News, “I would love to do [a comic book movie] if it was the right one, if I thought I could do it well. 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.”
He added, “I had a negative experience with the one comic book I liked, it was just a movie that didn't work. 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.”
Ben continued, "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!' 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."
Ben Affleck was recently linked to directing the Justice League movie but admitted that it was a no go.
