Superhero movies weren't always so super. Ben Affleck knows that from experience, having played Daredevil on the big screen back in 2003, opposite his now-estranged-wife Jennifer Garner. Speaking about the film in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly -- which debuted just two days after he and Garner announced their decision to divorce -- the Gone Girl actor reflected on his crime-fighting past, present, and future. "Daredevil didn't work, at all," Affleck, 42, told the mag of the movie, which starred the Argo director in the title [...] »
"Daredevil" is one of the most derided superhero movies of all time, and apparently, its star agrees with that criticism.
Ben Affleck, who's playing a more high-profile hero in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," told Entertainment Weekly that director Zack Snyder's dark vision for that flick is much more advanced than the thinking that went into the production of 2003's "Daredevil."
"'Daredevil' didn't work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite," Affleck told EW. "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.'"
Those are some harsh words, but Affleck isn't exactly wrong. As EW points out, there seems to be a line in the sand »

The actor offered his take on why his first superhero effort fell flat with critics and fans, saying that the film came before people realised "you could make these movies and make them well".
He told Entertainment Weekly: "Daredevil didn't work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite.
"That was before people realised 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 cheque'."
The 42-year-old actor has admitted the 2003 superhero movie – in which he stars as a blind man whose other four senses are superhuman – “didn’t work”.
Ben said: “‘Daredevil’ didn’t work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite. 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.’ “
‘Daredevil‘ hasn’t put Ben off of playing superheroes however, as he’s about to star as Batman in ‘Batman v Superman’, and promises his second run will be better.

Warner Bros yesterday released a bunch of new stills from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, as it prepares to pull back to covers on next year's film at Comic-Con in San Diego next weekend. As part of that, Ben Affleck has been chatting to Entertainment Weekly about his take on Batman, and on his previous comic book movie, Daredevil.
The latter first then. Revisiting a theme he's covered before, Affleck accepted that "Daredevil didn't work at all", adding that "if I wanted to go viral, I would be less polite". Don't worry, Ben. No website will pick the story up. Ahem.

We're all still in mourning over the shocking news of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's split, and we don't mean to add salt to the wound, but we kinda are.

This post originally ran in October 2014. We are rerunning it because, as things end, it's good to remember where they started. I remember the moment in April 2005 when I heard that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were getting married. I was in college at the time and I didn’t really follow gossip news, so I didn’t even know they had started dating. But still, there, burned in my brain, is the memory of me seeing the news and thinking, Of course. See, I had seen the episode of Dinner for Five (Jon Favreau's short-lived IFC show where he had actors and directors eat dinner together) that they appeared on together, along with their Daredevil cast members, and I had observed Jennifer Garner fall madly in love with Ben Affleck. The episode aired in January 2003, which means Ben was still dating Jennifer Lopez (Lopez and Affleck had gotten »

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have split after 10 years of marriage, just one day after their wedding anniversary. People confirmed the news with a joint statement from the couple on Tuesday, saying, "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce.

Anghus Houvouras with the five best film franchises…
As we continue to examine the state of Hollywood’s biggest franchises, it’s time to dole out a little love. We’ve looked at the Five Worst Film Franchises and Five Film Franchises on the Fence. It’s time for the Five Best Film Franchises. Yes, there are franchises that deserve love. Movie series that consistently entertain and deliver at the box office. Films that make the concept of franchises more palatable, even when studios are trying to crap garbage like G.I. Joe: Retaliation down you’re throat.
Once again, we are only considering franchises that have films actively in production with two or more installments previously produced.
With that in mind… here’s the best of the best:
1. James Bond
The longest film franchise is still the best. Super-Spy James Bond has been entertaining audiences since the 1960’s with his alcohol fueled sexual exploits. »

Believe it or not, 2015 is half done already - and the past six months have delivered some top-notch television, much of it brand new drama, comedy and documentaries.
Picking the finest from a particularly fine crop was no easy task, but these were our rules: it had to launch in 2015, it must have aired one series / season in its entirety and it had to be a continuing series.
So no-one off pieces - e.g. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - and nothing that got the chop - sorry, Banished.
Here - in original broadcast order - are the DS Staff Picks from the year so far.

It’s the San Diego Comic-Con International next month, and if you were looking forward to Marvel Studios’ annual Hall H extravaganza, then I’m afraid it appears you’re out of luck. Back in March, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn indicated that Marvel would skip Sdcc this year, and it’s been reported this week that is indeed the case, although it’s yet to be officially confirmed by Marvel or Disney. Still, there is going to be plenty of superhero goodness, »
