Ben Affleck, the guy who appeared to be pretty much everywhere during Super Bowl LVII's many commercials and trailers, was a crackpot of advertising genius during the biggest football game of the year. From a Dunkin Donuts commercial to a commercial for his next feature film, Air, and, of course, confirming that he will reprise his role as one of two Bruce Waynes when The Flash goes out in June.
Pedro Pascal was an absolute powerhouse in The Last of Us and The Mandalorian, and if we look back at the second quarter, it's quite probable that Affleck will be awarded the honor.
The star of Air isn't the first, and it won't be the last time the actor takes a seat in the director's chair, so here's a quickfire summary of the star's career as a feature film director.
Ben Affleck has directed every film.
Ben Affleck made his feature film directorial debut with the 2007 detective drama Gone Baby Gone, and has since directed The Town, Argo, and Live by Night. He also directed and stars in the upcoming Air alongside Matt Damon, in which the pair play Nike executives following the company's fateful partnership with Michael Jordan. The first trailer for the Super Bowl was released a couple of days before the Super Bowl.
Affleck's feature film director credits would be increased to five, although, as per his IMDb profile, he has two other directorial projects in the works, such as Keeper of the Lost Cities and Witness for the Prosecution. He has also had initiatives canceled in the past, such as his ill-fated solo Batman film.
Affleck's career as a filmmaker goes back to 1993, when he directed a 15-minute short film, I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meathook, and Now I Have a Three-Pixe Deal at Disney. If it is anything to go by, it also isn't very good.
