It’s obvious that he too is not happy with how things turned out, but it looks as though it has worked out for the better of everyone involved. Affleck has moved on to play one of the most iconic comic book characters and has already won fans over. He should be a staple in the DCEU until the day he decides to call it quits, but that is years away from now. Not only will he be in Justice League next year, but his solo film is continuing to move along, and he could have many more appearances after.
Daredevil, meanwhile, eventually reverted back to Marvel as the failure of the film scared Fox away from wanting to attempt anything else. The character, now played by Charlie Cos, is a leading member of the Netflix corner of the MCU and will soon lead The Defenders. Sure, Affleck’s portrayal of Daredevil isn’t what fans wanted, but he makes it sound like without that failure he never would’ve considered playing Batman. So maybe there is some good that came out of the Daredevil movie after all.
