“Indeed I have regrets about Daredevil,” says Affleck during an interview with NPR. “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”

“I’m hard on myself,” he continues, “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.”

Affleck credits Zack Snyder for even taking the role and praises the screenwriter.

“It was written by Chris Terrio, who wrote Argo, who’s not a comic guy,” he explains. “And it’s directed by Zack Snyder, who’s an 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.”

Henry Cavill co-stars with Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Eisenberg and Ray Fisher.

Also cast are Jason Momoa, Scoot McNairy, Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne,  Amy Adams, Diane LaneCallan Mulvey, Jeremy Irons, Tao Okamoto and TJ Norris.
