Ben Affleck was blind as a bat as Daredevil, and now he's just the guy dressed as a bat in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel!
Now, we all remember Ben in his first and not entirely successful super hero iteration, and how Daredevil was perceived by some people as perhaps not the best comic book adaptation of all time.
Ben has not forgotten this either. At. All.
In a recent interview with Playboy Magazine, Ben talked how the haunting failure of Daredevil helped him decide to become the playboy by day, caped avenger by night:
"I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got f*cked up the way it did stays with me. Maybe that’s part of the motivation to do Batman."
Along with Batkid, Ben is truly the hero Gotham deserves!
Just like Bruce Wayne uses his fear of bats to motivate him to become the Batman, Ben will likewise use his fear of repeating Daredevil's flop to do the same!
Ben, we're sure you're going to be AH-Mazing as Batman. Just, maybe no gravelly voice in this one?
