Colin Farrell wishes Ben Affleck luck with Batman

Exclusive: “He’ll do a great job”

In issue 216 of Total Film magazine, Colin Farrell reveals that he's sure his Daredevil co-star Ben Affleck will do "a great job" as Batman in Man Of Steel 2.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad - Farrell says that he's always enjoyed his co-star's work.

“Good luck to him," he says. "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 shit thing to say.

"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."

Farrell's next film, A New York Winter's Tale, opens in the UK on 21 February 2014.
