Even on that level there is no comparison. Affleck is NOT a box office draw. He actually tanked one superhero film.
Downey meanwhile has led his last 6 films to atleast 100 million domestic and much much more worldwide.
So even in the sense of box office power and popularity, the two are not in the same universe.
