Actors Who Hated The Iconic Movies They Starred In

Among other notable roles, Ben Affleck has played a superhero twice — well, 3 times if you count “Hollywoodland.” He became Batman in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and continued his grittier, angrier Dark Knight through several DC Extended Universe films, including  both “Justice League” movies. His first foray into costumed crimefighting, however, didn’t receive any encore performances.

Affleck played Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) in the 2003 movie, a notorious dud at the time. While the film featured notable Easter eggs for fans who had long hoped to see their hero on the silver screen, it deviated from the source enough to provoke others. Affleck’s performance isn’t terrible, but the movie features some bad acting, crummy dialogue, and several scenes that deserve to reside in the bottom of the discount bin at your local 99 cent store.

In 2015, Affleck admitted to Entertainment Weekly that the film was a misfire. “‘Daredevil’ didn’t work, at all,” he said. “That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of ‘Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.’”
