Ben Affleck is an interesting case in Hollywood. The actor/writer/director has stared in some of the biggest flops in film history (Gigli, anyone?) but has also starred in cult classics like Mallrats and Dazed and Confused. Furthermore, early in his career he won an Oscar as a writer for Good Will Hunting, and after a period of making mediocre movies he began a directing career, putting a trio of fantastic films to screen culminating in another Oscar in 2012 for Argo. During his up and down career, Affleck has managed to land a few lucrative roles as comic book characters as well, first as the title character in Marvel’s Daredevil a film that made $179,179,718 million at the box office, and next, and more controversially, as Batman in the next franchise reboot of the caped crusader’s exploits in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the casting of Affleck as Batman has caused almost universal disdain from fans around the world, it will be interesting to see how well he steps into Christian Bale’s bat suit, and the film is sure to be a box office hit.
