Ben Affleck has admitted that his foray as Marvel superhero 'Daredevil' in 2003 'didn't work'.

Though the film made money for its studio 20th Century Fox, it was a critical disaster for the actor, who starred opposite his now-wife Jennifer Garner in the film.

“I had a negative experience with the one comic book I liked [Daredevil], it was just a movie that didn't work,” he admitted.

“It's such a shame, because 'Daredevil' is a great book, a great idea. And then right after that, [the studios] figured out that it was better to make the movies good, and then they started making them cool and investing in them.”

He added that he was also offered the opportunity to reboot Marvel superhero 'Daredevil', despite having played the character the first time round.

“I got contacted about it and I was like, ‘That wouldn’t be a reboot [if I were involved],” he told MTV.  “But I really hope they do a good job, because that’s a great property.”

He added that if a script emerged that he liked, he'd potentially reconsider the project.
