Colin Farrell Supports Ben Affleck as Batman: ‘He Will Shut The Naysayers Up’

Ben Affleck's Daredevil co-star Colin Farrell had nothing but praise and support for DC's new Batman. Colin Farrell played the Marvel villain Bullseye alongside Ben Affleck 10 years ago. Read on to find out what he had to say.

Colin Farrell, who played the Marvel villain Bullseye alongside Ben Affleck 10 years ago, believes Ben Affleck will shut up the critics as Batman in the upcoming Warner Bros. film BATMAN VS SUPERMAN.

He added that Ben has come a long way as an actor, and that will show in his performance.

Colin told Total Film: ‘Good luck to him. I think he’ll do a great job. As an actor, I don’t know that I know anyone that’s improved as much as he has. That sounds like a s**t thing to say.

He went on: ‘I always enjoyed watching him, as a director he’s extraordinary too, but his work in The Town and Argo, he was so fantastic in both those films. In Argo, it was such a controlled performance, I think he’ll kill as Batman, I hope he does and shuts the naysayers up.

What do YOU think? Will Ben Affleck kill it as Bruce Wayne?

I've always been behind this and I'm still saying he'll be the perfect Batman and Bruce Wayne.

Great Find! @ Jason Blue... Ben Affleck will kill it as Bruce Wayne/Batman!!! And as for all the cry baby haters, I hope Ben Affleck makes them eat there words!! He will mark my words!!!! Colin Farrell knows what's up.

If you haven't seen Saving Mr. Banks. Watch it, and watch his performance. He's a damn saint. The film itself is fantastic, but his performance in it... you can easily see why he was chosen to play Bulls-Eye in DD, and his role in Phonebooth.

He's an actor that you are attracted to. His go in In Bruges.

Ben is going to be a fantastic Batman, no doubt about it. To be honest, I was never opposed, or for the casting of Ben when it broke, I was more beside myself with it, but I've grown to love the idea, him in a blue/grey batsuit? Count me in.
BlackIceJoe - 1/26/2014, 8:45 PM
I think he will be great too. But when is Colin Farrell going to come out and say if he is doing Warcraft or passed on it. That I want to know from him instead of Ben's going to do great. I think it is real easy to see Ben is going to blow the pants off of people with his performance.
Reasonnnn - 1/26/2014, 8:57 PM
So much blind faith. Not the biggest fan of Affleck the actor, but I love comeback stories.
Brady1138 - 1/26/2014, 8:57 PM
Well, if Colin Farrell supports him, WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?!
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/26/2014, 9:01 PM

JediSuperGuy83 - 1/26/2014, 9:04 PM

Ben Affleck as Batman is the best superhero casting since Ben Affleck as Daredevil.
MrReese - 1/26/2014, 9:41 PM
@NPaMusic He was great in Saving Mr.Banks.

Jollem - 1/26/2014, 9:56 PM
but...doesn't he realize you can't ever really shut naysayers up? they just move on to the next thing. anything, really. they're like hosts for an undying, parasitic entity
cld247 - 1/26/2014, 10:13 PM
@ Jollem I 100% agree...
JasonBlue - 1/26/2014, 10:16 PM
@Jollem - Batman vs the Naysayers
Aquaman9 - 1/26/2014, 10:35 PM

VISIONaryNPa - 1/26/2014, 10:36 PM
@SuperCat see Saving Mr. Banks and In Burges, then say he still "sucks"... I dare you.
loki668 - 1/26/2014, 11:39 PM
I wonder if this is his way of campaigning for a role?
