It's funny, Daredevil is a crappy movie but I always felt Affleck and Farrell were the two bright spots in it. They weren't enough to save the film, but I enjoyed their performances for the most part.

That said, DD is FAR from Ben's best work. The Town, Hollywoodland, Argo, Good Will Hunting, Dogma, Chasing Amy... the guy has turned in many good performances. Now, he HAS sucked in some films (Paycheck is probably the worst performance I've seen him give).

I thought Ben was badass in Daredevil. I don't know why people think he won't be intimidating.

Also, I think Farrell has a ton of charisma (Seven Psychopaths anyone?) and I hope he lands another CGM role. Deadman?

^That's an odd choice. Any guy that can do a somewhat Boston/Jersey-like accent can pull off Deadman. He's not that complex.

I'd like to see Farrell as a superhero at some point. He's a really underrated actor. I think his problem has been that most of the high-profile projects he's taken on have been mediocre or bad movies, but they would have been bad movies regardless of who was in them.

I know and it irritates me to no end. The majority of the time whenever something is mentioned about Affleck and Batman, you hear "his Batman will suck....just look at Daredevil". UGH, such an ignorant statement, IMO.

Honestly it comes down to fans wanting certain actors for roles and if they don't get what they want they need to subconsciously justify reasons as to why the guy wouldn't work.

Agreed. For me, Paycheck and Armageddon are his weakest performances. Paycheck he was just going through the motions for a paycheck(pun intended ) and I didn't believe the chemistry between him and Liv Tyler once in Armageddon.

DAREDEVIL is certainly not Affleck's best performance, but it's far from sucking. I'm curious as to what people would point to in order to suggest otherwise.

Eh, I think Armageddon gets a bit too much hate. It's been a long time since I watched it, but I remember really enjoying it when I saw it in the theater. Granted, I was about 17 at the time, but whatever. It's just a mindless summer popcorn flick. I remember someone--might have been Ebert--saying something like it was an offensive assault on all of your senses or something. I think that's a bit much. I think it's better than a lot of the summer action/disaster movies (Volcano, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow). As for Affleck's performance in it, I thought he was fine.

I do hate that damned Aerosmith song though.

He's not really an action star much at all in The Town. The Town isn't really an action movie, at least not completely.

I do think Affleck is being a little harsh on himself.

IMHO I think it's just his way of coping with all the criticism that got thrown his way for it and trying to show that he 'gets it'. An understandable tactic from a PR standpoint, but I hope he's not actually as haunted by that movie as he says he is. To me it was just mediocre superhero flick. It happens. He's made far worse movies than that (*cough* Surviving Christmas *cough*).

New interview with Affleck about the home release of Argo. He talks about sneaking in a six pack shot of himself in every movie he directs which stars him. He is also asked about Batman but absolutely refuses to answer even a single question!

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 bet Ben will nail the role, I have seen enough to make a good judgement.

Amazing in Argo, and Good Will Hunting.

Now, nobody can say if he WILL be better than Bale, because nobody has obviously seen the film, but one thing I can bet is that he will bring something new to the table, and that we will be in for a surprise.

All he needs is teh scruffy and I can vision him as a perfect Batman.

I hope his face looks lean and sharp in BvS, it has a tendency to get very puffy when he gains some weight.

Look how he looks here

I think that's a stupid thing to worry over. Not in a mean way, just in an honest way.

He'll be in the best shape of his life, and he'll be a physically imposing Batman for sure. I have a feeling we're in for a super treat.

He's got the jaw for the cowl. Probably the best one we've had from an aesthetic standpoint.
