During his press junket for Gone Girl, Ben Affleck was asked about if starring in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gives him any regrets about doing the Daredevil film back in 2003 and this is what Affleck had to say:
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 v Superman’] was written by Chris Terrio, who wrote Argo, who’s not a comic guy. And it’s directed by Zack 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.
