Superhero movies are full of competent actors who do terrible jobs, either on their own part or those of the movie makers. I don't even think we can completely blame Affleck for Daredevil - it was ill-conceived in its entirety.
Quite right about Daredevil. But my beef with Aflac in general for any super-hero movie... he just doesn't have the voice for it. Let's be brutally honest, animation allows for more heroic feats and outlandish events. But the one "human" aspect is the voice actor. Hamill does a perfect job as Joker, but to see the man as Joker, we would all probably laugh. Jeff Blum, and the numerous characters he has voiced...

I'm not a fan of Alfac, but that's my opinion. But I'm sure many will agree, his voice isn't "heroic" like a Blum or Conway.
