Confirming reports that we ran last week, Ben Affleck is set to don the red tights of Daredevil. After Vin Diesel pulled out due to a scheduling conflict, Ben angled for the role, much to the glee of his friends Kevin Smith and Matt Damon.

Damon allegedly has been a big Daredevil fan for years and Kevin Smith wrote a recent comic revival of the blind superhero. Filming is scheduled to begin next month with a target release date of next fall.

I got this info from my VideoETA newsletter.
