While out doing promotion for The Martian, New York Daily News had a chat with Matt Damon and questioned the actor if he had any interest in possibly playing a superhero on the big-screen. Damon seems like he is somewhat toying around with the notion himself and commented on his long-time collaborator Ben Affleck’s decision to sign on to play the DCEU’s Batman.
While he does seem open to the idea with the right character, there is one for sure that he’d sign on to play. However, there is a bit of a catch to it and he also revealed why he’d backed out of playing a superhero last time around.
What would it take for Damon to sign on for that role? Well, the project would require a certain director. Damon continued:
Currently that seems very unlikely to ever happen due to numerous factors. But even if we never see him suit up in a superhero film, as he shifts his future priorities to the directing side of things. Damon said that he would definitely be into directing an upcoming superhero film. “Just putting that out there,” he said, laughing.
