"Indeed I Have Regrets About Daredevil" – Ben Affleck Talks About Why He Is Taking On Batman

benaffleckWith 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.
