Affleck opened up about his feelings of the film during his appearance on TimeTalks. Speaking of his decision to take on the role as Batman in this years Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Affleck said; “Part of it was I wanted for once to get one of these movies and do it right – to do a good version. I hate Daredevil so much.”
“The Netflix show does really cool stuff,” he continued. “I feel like that was there for us to do with that character, and we never kind of got it right. I wanted to do one of those movies and sort of get it right.”
Netflix’s Daredevil was renewed for a third season back in July. A premiere date has yet to be confirmed, but Charlie Cox, who plays the title character, has said that he’d like to see the supervillain Bullseye make his way into the show.
Speaking to Screenrant in March, Cox said: “If we are fortunate enough to continue making the Daredevil series, I can’t imagine doing a run of Daredevil where Bullseye doesn’t show up at some point. It would be great to have him around at some point.”
