WCP: Affleck Daredevil + Comic Book Movie Eras

Reading Time: 1 minute

Strap into your time machines as we venture back to the time of Bennifer, life before Twitter, and 19-year-old Jake still rocking the hair.

The year is 2003, and the movie in question: Daredevil.

Starring Ben Affleck (post-Kevin Smith, pre-directing phase), Jennifer Garner, Michael Clark Duncan, and the gloriously over the top Colin Farrell. Filled with early ’00s camp, Daredevil sure tries hard… But does it still hold up? Or did it ever? And is it a strength or weakness that Farrell is the film’s MVP?

That question leads Jake + Mitch down the path of re-defining the whole era of comic book cinema we find ourselves in. With a quick history lesson and brief power ranking—the guys definitively declare 1997-2007 the Silver Age of Comic Movies.  Basically, the revelation changes everything. You won’t want to miss it.

Plus, Nakey makes his podcast debut as the token hairless cat. Don’t worry, he’s got costumes. Jake will explain.
