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!
