He may have had his ups and downs as an actor, and the jury's still out on how his final performance as Batman will be, but I've always had a lot of time for Affleck as a human being, and he gives a damn good interview.

I really liked what he had to say. I don't get why people don't even want to give the guy a shot.

hahaha...I am glad he gave it some thought. He would be a fool not to. I'm in a holding patter with the guy, but I am definitely willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I don't know what his issues are with Daredevil, but he's way out of line. To me I've seen him in a lot of movies and Daredevil might have been his top 3 performances. I put his performance in Good Will Hunting no1 and Daredevil performance 2. It seems real insecure to just blame everything on Daredevil, which isn't even really hated. He acts like people think of that movie on the same ladder as Catwoman and Elecktra etc. A lot of people enjoyed that movie, myself included. I'm on record for saying I think he is a bad choice for Batman, but I still thought he was a good Murdock.

I can't imagine a world where Affleck's performance as Daredevil is better than his performance in Argo, the Town or Hollywoodland. Hell, Chasing Amy for that matter.

I haven't seen Argo or Hollywoodland, but have seen the Town and Chasing Amy and I think his performance was better. I personally think Chasing Amy was one of the worst movies ever made and The Town, he was just your typical action movie star. Daredevil had heart and warmth in the performance.

Top 3?? I can name 10 easy. Over his performance in The Town? Now i know y'all trippin!

That movie was terrible and he's absolutely right. Even if people liked it, he hated it, that's all that matters when it comes to how he felt.

His performance in DareDevil was not good IMHO. I find DD to be a painfully mediocre forgettable film. He met his wife on set though so things didn't turn out too bad.

It was the least bit of problems in that movie. DD was so bad that it made him look decent in the movie, but his performance sucked.

The way people suck up to celebrities is ridiculous. Affleck says he sucks and the movie sucks and now you can't find one person to say it was decent. I don't care what he says and he is wrong to trash the movie, even if he did think it sucks. People worked hard on it and it is what it is. I've seen him in movies that were a lot worse than Daredevil. His Bullseye fights were good rivalry and the way that he took on street thugs was nice as well. Some of his scenes at the cemetery, his scene when he fought the thugs in the bar, and some of his blind acting was decent to me. I think Affleck is overall average as an actor and has never gone beyond average in any film except Good Will Hunting(maybe) and Daredevil was decent. It was one of the few roles I didn't see Affleck.

He just cannot win with you, can he? If he said DD wasn't that bad you'd say he was delusional.

Ive been saying Daredevil is a piece of **** since it came out. I dont need another person, especially a celebrity, to tell me what i think.

There was the odd scene where he was fine, absolutely. I still think the movie is terrible and he wasn't very good in it.

Bro, I like Affleck as a persona and enjoy his movies for what they are. Before he was cast as Batman there was not anyone happier that he bounced back because he seemed like a good guy and who doesn't enjoy a comeback story? Batman is Batman though. I'm not even mad at him, it's more WB not respecting the character and going about it lazily to just hire Affleck who I have no desire to see his take on Batman. I don't want to get any further with it because I'm getting mad all over. I always forget he's playing Batman and then I see some quote he makes on the project.

I was never on the daredevil hate wagon myself,but it still kind of makes me happy to hear that Affleck hates it.
Hopefully it really pushes him to be a great Bruce/Batman.

On a more pressing note, if he's done or near done filmng Gone Girl now, does that mean we can expect a trailer for that film soon?

out of curiosity, why even post here if the Batfleck makes you angry despite you not having seen any of the performance and far overestimating how much acting prowess the role requires?

I've never said that DD was a poor movie. In fact, I believe that the DD director's cut is a VERY good movie. It's a shame that Affleck is selling himself short because watching the director's cut, I thought that he was quite good in the role. A lot of his best scenes got cut out of the theatrical version.

We will probably see a teaser trailer at next year's Comic-Con, which is in the last week of July, and a full-length trailer in 2015, during the Super Bowl.

Unless you're referring to SvB, Gone Girl is coming out next October. If you're referring to the former, I doubt WB will splash out on a SB spot for that. They haven't done any in years.

But I do expect a teaser trailer to debut with either Edge of Tomorrow or Jupiter Ascending. Longer trailer with Interstellar in the fall, and then the final 2.5 minute trailer on Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Mark Wahlberg said The Happening sucked. I guess you don't think that was a bad film since people worked hard on it and it is what it is?
