    In my May 2002 Offical U.S. PlayStation magazine i came a cross a page talking about comic book movies.One of those movies was Daredevil, set to come out in Feb. 2003. It said that Ben Affleck would play daredevil.Is there any truth to this? I mean Ben is cool and all, but he is no Daredevil.If any one should play Daredevil it should be Steve Guttenburg(thats for you Brian) I just hope this was some sort of a bad joke. Also starring was Michael Clark Duncan as the Kingpin,Jon Favreau as Foggy Nalson, Colin Farrell as Bullseye, and Jennifer Garner as Elektra. If this was a joke, please let me know.

    It's no joke. They're shooting it as we speak.

    Wow I am a big Kevin Smith fan. Maybe the movie might not be that bad after all.[​IMG]

    I thought Matt Damon was supposed to play DD. Affleck looks nothing like the character.

    This info has been around awhile,Im suprised you guys didnt know anything about it.

    There was a lenghty thread here awhile ago about Michael Duncun Clarke getting the Kingpin role adn well as a Electra casting thread.

    Norton would have been great, but I could live with Damon.
    But Jon Favreau as Foggy redeems the whole cast for me [​IMG]

    Hmmm....I seem to remember a similar reaction when Michael Keaton was chosen for Batman way back when - actually, I seem to recall it as public outrage from the fans. Turned out to be an excellent choice. Too bad he only did two films....probably would have made Batman Forever a better film with his performance. Anyway, my point is this...Ben Affleck could possibly pull Daredevil off....stranger things have happened as I have pointed out.
