Who Played It Best? Daredevil

Who Played It Best? Daredevil
Back in 2003 I was walking on air when I heard that a Daredevil movie was to be made. I thought Marvel was on a hot streak, this was after the release of the "Spiderman" and "X-Men" movies. Both of those were big hits at the box office and both were movies that I really enjoyed. I had reservations on Affleck then, but I was willing to give the movie a try. The trailers certainly looked promising and some trusted critics wrote good things. Then the movie came out and it was not at all what I expected. While some will argue that the first "Daredevil" movie was Affleck's fault, I disagree. Marvel clearly thought they were untouchable after the success of "Spiderman" and "X-Men" and the studios they sold characters to just greenlit any script they could get their hands on. Plus, Fox hired people that had no idea who Daredevil was as a character and they really didn't know what to do with him. I like that when Marvel recently got the rights back to the character, they waited a little bit until they used him again. They have spent almost ten years building a great cinematic universe, and their timing has been perfect. Charlie Cox made a huge statement when he played the character for Netflix, but who played the character best?

My Two Cents
I am not sure I can doubt who will be crowned the winner, I am honestly just curious if there is anyone out there who will vote Affleck. Plus, I wonder how many people have actually seen the Netflix show yet. Yes, I am taking a chance here, since the show is not even a month old yet, but I am wildly curious.

Send your votes to my email at or simply comment in the comment section below. Sorry I took a two-week hiatus but I am back and ready to take on some more iconic roles and the actors who played them.

Two orphan girls battle for the top prize two weeks and I now I will deliver who the best actress to portray Annie was. The results are more than in.
