Daredevil

Super-Ben to the rescue...

Repackaged in a steelbook that drains the colour from Ben Affleck’s red, pointy-eared suit, this re-release of his first superhero outing seems more about cashing in on the ‘Batfleck’ news than offering much new.

Still, if you haven’t seen this Director’s Cut of Mark Steven Johnson’s Marvel adap, it’s worth a shot.

With much of the cheesy romance with Jennifer Garner’s Elektra wisely nixed, Affleck’s Matt Murdock (sight-impaired lawyer by day; super-sensed vigilante by night) gets room to breathe – as do the fights, including a brutal and properly climactic smackdown with the late Michael Clarke Duncan’s imposing Kingpin.
