He also starred as Batman in "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Zack Snyder's Justice League." "Don't Look Up" wins?
However, he has recently changed his career a bit, and in "The Last Duel" in a supporting role with Adam Driver, Matt Damon and Judy Kamer appeared. The film was disappointing at the box office, grossing just over $ 30 million with a budget of over $ 100 million, but it did well among critics and many praised Affleck's unique play.

According to Affleck, he concludes that the main characters are usually less flexible in terms of characterization. The actor states that when it comes to millions of dollars, the main characters of the story should be tangible and close to the audience.

It arises, and there is a fundamental element that you must adhere to so that people and audiences can identify with you and not lose the money. Of course they are right about the financial issues but in fact I always prefer to play the role of rich characters. Movies that I'm not the main character in, whether "Good Will Hunting", "Shakespeare in Love", "The Last Duel" or "The Tender Bar", allow me to be more complex, special and interesting.<"The Tender Bar" has not been officially released yet, but the opinions of critics who have seen the film differ. Many of them seem to have problems with the project as a whole, but often consider Affleck to be one of the best elements of the film, which shows that his new approach to smaller roles has paid off. Of course, although Affleck wants to play more supporting characters, he will continue to appear as the main character in several new films. Affleck will star in a sequel to the unnamed "Accountant," and will also appear alongside Anna de Armas in "Deep Waters," an exciting, romantic film. his time in the lead roles may not end, but the Hollywood star has already said that he will no longer appear in films based on a specific identity, except for Batman.
Affleck has a number of successful lead roles on his resume. But in addition to that, he has left several unsuccessful attempts in works such as "Dardville", "Man of the City", "The Last Thing We Wanted" and "Night Life". He certainly still has the charisma and talent to play the main characters, but it seems that at this stage of his career, exploring more complex characters and applying his acting skills in new ways is a more attractive option for him and of course his audience. Affleck's latest sub-project, Tender Bar, will be released later this month.
