On the contrary, the figure of Ben Affleck He never finished convincing even the executives, who dealt with many creative differences with him, so much so that they canceled his solo film. But neither to the audience, who consider that it did not happen well to his predecessor. However, there are those who wanted him to continue, to see how he unfolds in the future.
