Matt Damon Would Take On A Superhero Role If Ben Affleck Would Direct

Matt Damon has yet to join a superhero franchise (Bourne not being counted within that genre) but would consider the opportunity if Ben Affleck was behind the camera.

At the premiere for Jason Bourne, Damon was speaking with the Irish Examiner and was asked about taking on a superhero role.

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

Kevin Tsujihara has already confirmed that Ben Affleck will be directing the upcoming Batman standalone film to be released within the next 5 years. Could this lead to a possible Affleck and Damon team up on screen?

It has been expected that Affleck would be directing this film ever since he signed on to portray the character in ‘Batman v Superman’. The theory was only bolstered when it was reported that he would be writing a script alongside DC Entertainment CCO, Geoff Johns.

Are you looking forward to the Batman standalone film? Would you like to see Matt Damon join a superhero franchise? Comment below and lets chat!

    Welp, it looks like they’re setting up Ben to direct Justice League 2 with his buddy Matt Damon as green lantern. No complaints from me here.

    • SAMURAI36

      Not sure where you’re getting that from.

      • JNAZ

        Just pure speculation

  • E C F’N W

    NIGHTWING!!

  • xxjinzaxx

    YES!! Nightwing!! …or Gotham.

    • SAMURAI36

      Damon is too old for Nightwing.

      • xxjinzaxx

        Suspension of disbelief. Movie magic. Ben Affleck is not an old crusty dude, but played the part. John Hurt wasn’t deformed, but he played the role of John Merrick nicely. Matt Damon can pass as a 30-something guy since Batman is supposed to be 20 years after his Todd died. 20 years plus a 16-18 something Grayson. It’s times-wimey, butI’ll buy.

        • SAMURAI36

          I hear what you’re saying, bit I’m not sure Damon could even pull off the look of NW. He’s far too bulky for that character. Even in the comics, Batman has a good 50+lbs on NW. The DCEU Batman, even more so, I’d imagine.
          But Damon is d&mn near as bulked up as Affleck is. That’s be a hard sell.

  • Bjacks

    Well, we still need a Hal Jordan/Green Lantern…

  • JMMagwood

    I would write a great part for the Question in Affleck’s Batman movie, and deliver it to Damon by next week.

    • SAMURAI36

      Take my money, like right now.

      • JMMagwood

        Johns is just the guy who could make something like this happen. When an opportunity like this is possible, every effort needs to be made to make it reality. Damon would be another A+ addition to the DCEU.

  • SAMURAI36

    I like Damon, & think he’d make a great addition to the DCEU, but him thinking that all the Superheroes are taken, is just a classic case of not being knowledgeable about comics.

    The Question has been mentioned, & Hal Jordan as well. I’m sure others would come to mind, if I had time to think about it.

  • Fenix

    How about Ted Kord?

  • Nick Crawford

    Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Blue Beetle, The Question, Booster Gold, Max Lord, Captain Atom, Firestorm…

    • SAMURAI36

      Captain Atom is another great choice.

  • Supreme Taco Snoke

    Damon as Edward Nygma please.

    • SAMURAI36

      That’d be a waste of Damon’s size & physical presence.

  • delta_one

    I could picture the Red Hood if he and Ben weren’t so close in age.

  • delta_one

    I don’t know why I didn’t even think of Green Arrow. that could actually work out really well.

    • JNAZ

      Batman v Green Arrow: Battle of the Billionaires.. make it happen DC!

  • Maximillian Pegasus

    Everyone is already saying it but if Ben has to direct, so, Green Arrow, Question or a Batman villain, Azrael, Ra’s Al Ghul, Riddler, Two Face, Talon(William Cobb/ Court of Owls).

    • SAMURAI36

      He’d be great as Talon, or even as Owl Man, of they ever decided to go that route.

      • Maximillian Pegasus

        Owl Man should be Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
