Matt Damon would play a superhero for Ben Affleck

07.12.2016

With JASON BOURNE premiering in theaters around the world, Matt Damon is making the publicity rounds and talking about the future of BOURNE, as well as other film possibilities. As soon as Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman, we all joked about Damon taking on the role of Robin. But is there any chance that Damon would actually throw on a cape of some sort? Well, turns out if th right people are involved, he probably would!

Matt Damon on playing a superhero:

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. If [Ben Affleck] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben. The problem with Ben is every time he directs a movie, he gives himself the best role in it, so until he’s willing to give up the best role to one of his friends, we’re not going to get on with it.

Obviously Damon is being a little cheeky here, but he's not wrong! Affleck and Damon proved to be a hell of a team when it came to GOOD WILL HUNTING, and while they've been uber-busy ever since, I've always wanted them to team back up for another film. I doubt it would be anything superhero-related, but if you told me that Damon would be taking part in Affleck's solo Batman film . . . well, you'd then have one of the most anticipated comic book films of all time!

You can see Matt Damon next in JASON BOURNE which hits theaters on July 29, 2016.

Dent or Hush

Both characters would be an interesting, and ironic, dynamic to Affleck's older Batman who has seen friends and enemies come and go. If Damon is Dent, the dual identity approach could really be approached, but when Affleck insisting that his Batman movie has to cover new ground, I'd say Hush would be far more [link] after the murder mystery of Gone Baby Gone which proved Affleck can handle an even darker take on a common story.

HUSH

Been saying it since Affleck became Batman, Matt Damon would be so awesome ad Dr.Thomas Elliot/Hush. Their real-life friendship would only add to the power behind his performance.

Hell yes Hush!! Go back to the original Hush storyline and look at how the character is drawn. Matt is perfect! Just don't use the stupid version they went to where he looked like Bruce. I hated that. But I totally love that they could use their own friendship to build on. Hush could steal the show in that movie.

Off the top of my head, he could play:
Vic Sage (The Question)
J'onn J'onnz
Orion of the New Gods
Captain Atom
for the less heroic roles:
The Riddler
Joe Chill

Even though Matthew McConaughey is my top choice for Harvey Dent/Two Face, Damon would definitely be a solid choice as well considering the two relationship the characters have in the comics and the personal friendship Damon and Affleck have in their lives with one another.

Or maybe Red Hood??

I agree, both would be pretty great choices for Harvey Dent. I remember hearing that McConaughey had at least been talking to Warner Bros. about a DC project.

HARVEY DENT!!!!

1) Damon was Chris Nolan's original choice for Dent for TDK.
2) totally plays off of the "Harvey and Bruce used to be old friends" conflict for Batman.

That's great to hear, but he's too old to play either Nightwing or Jason Todd. Azrael?

Maybe he could play a superhero who preaches about global warming after globetrotting on his own personal jet. Or he could be a superhero that takes away everyone's guns while employing armed guards himself and making a living posing with guns as seen in the picture above.
