Los Angeles: Actor Ben Affleck says he has regrets about his 2003 superhero film ‘Daredevil’, but insists his upcoming movie ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will entertain audiences the right way.

‘Daredevil’ was panned by critics.

"Indeed I have regrets about 'Daredevil'. I have regrets about all the movies that I don't think were executed properly," Affleck told National Public Radio, reports mirror.co.uk.

He says that if he thought that "we were remaking 'Daredevil', I'd be out there picketing myself".

"I'm hard on myself, and I have exacting standards and I want to do excellent work and I don't always succeed, but I think you have to start out with that drive," added the 42-year-old.

Praising the behind-the-scenes team working on the much-hyped film, Affleck said: "It was written by Chris Terrio, who wrote 'Argo', who's not a comic guy. And it's directed by Zack Snyder, who's an incredibly magical sort of visual stylist, who's steeped in the comic world.

"And you have this sandwich of talents. I felt very confident about it. I thought it would be nice to make one of these movies really, really good."
