Stan Lee: "Ben Affleck Will Be A Wonderful Batman"
The comic book legend also spoke out about Tom Hiddleston as Loki...
Comic book legend Stan Lee – who created titles including Iron Man, Thor and Spiderman – has said he thinks Ben Affleck will make a “wonderful Batman.”
“He’s much better than most people think he is,” Lee told Ora TV.
While admitting Affleck bombed the last time he donned a superhero outfit – “he didn’t do quite as well in Daredevil as everyone hoped he would,” Lee said tactfully – the famed comic book creator thought the problem with Daredevil was: “The directing more than anything else.”
Lee – who makes a cameo in every Marvel movie – also gave his opinion on Tom Hiddleston, who plays Thor nemesis Loki in the movies.
“Not only is he a great actor and a great Loki, he is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet,” Stan gushed. “I have become very friendly with him and I’m so happy for his success.”
Lee was equally complimentary about Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield, who have both played Spiderman, the character Lee invented.
“They’re both wonderful they each have their own style,” he said.
