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.
