USAToday.com has posted the first shot of Ben Affleck as superhero Daredevil, the newest in the sting of comic book inspired movies in the works.
Daredevil is more of a Batman type hero, meaning he has no “super powers” to speak of. He is blind, but to compensate for that his other senses are “hyper-acute.” An example from the article is “he’ll know if you have a gun in your pocket because he can smell the gunpowder.”
I’ve read a few Daredevil books and always thought he one of the cooler comic book characters out there. I guess we’ll have to wait and see whether the big screen lives up to the comic.
