(music) Once people got past the initial jokes about Batman having a Boston accent and posting pictures of the Aflac duck with a Batman mask, comic book fans started seriously assessing Warner Bros. choice. Many concerned that the actor turned director just doesn’t have it in him. But, it won’t be Affleck’s first time as a superhero. He played a blind Marvel crime fighter in 2003′s “Daredevil” (movie clip) And, portrayed 1950′s Superman Actor George Reeves in 2006′s “Hollywoodland”.
