19. Ben Affleck – Daredevil
When Ben Affleck signed on to star in Daredevil, he had yet to descend into tabloid fodder, causing him to reinvent himself as an acclaimed filmmaker who also moonlighted as Batman.
The Director’s Cut of Mark Steven Johnson’s Marvel blockbuster is vastly superior to the theatrical edit, which hardly made great use of the Man Without Fear’s undoubted cinematic potential.
The leading man may have voiced his disappointment with the final product on numerous occasions, but he still went home $12.5 million richer despite giving an uninspired performance.
