Matt Damon: I’d play a superhero role if Ben Affleck was directing me

Warner Bros.

Since the day Ben Affleck was cast as Batman people have made jokes that his best friend Matt Damon should be Robin. Obviously the 45-year-old actor is too old for that role, but he wouldn’t rule out playing a superhero entirely.

At the premiere of his new movie Jason Bourne, Damon told Irish Examiner that he’d consider playing a superhero if the right director was attached, especially if it was his good friend Ben Affleck.

“I’d consider anything with the right director, but I can’t imagine there are any superheroes left, I think they’re all taken at this moment,” Damon said.

He continued: “If [Ben] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben.”

It just so happens that Ben Affleck is directing a superhero movie. He’ll write, direct, and star in his very own Batman movie in the next couple of years. Do you think there’s a good superhero (or supervillain) role that he should cast his friend Matt Damon in? Let me know in the comments below!
