With Gone Girl opening this weekend, Ben Affleck has been out there promoting the film and of course questions about his next project, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice come up even on NPR.
Affleck was asked if he had an trepidation putting on Batman's cowl after having regrets over 2003's Daredevil movie.
Indeed I have regrets about Daredevil. I have regrets about all the movies that I don't think were executed properly. … Look, if I thought we were remaking Daredevil, I'd be out there picketing myself … and that goes for other movies as well that I haven't been happy with. You know, I'm hard on myself and I have exacting standards and I want to do excellent work and I don't always succeed, but I think you have to start out with that drive.
[Batman] was written by Chris Terrio, who wrote Argo, who's not a comic guy. And it's directed by Zach Snyder, who's a incredibly magical sort of visual stylist who's steeped in the comic world. And you have this sandwich of talents. I felt very confident about it. … I thought it would be nice to make one of these movies really, really good.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on March 25, 2016.
