Will Matt Damon join Ben Affleck in the upcoming Batman Reboot? The actor is currently out making the rounds for his latest movie Jason Bourne. He has reunited with director Paul Greengrass for the fifth installment of that franchise, which is a pretty big deal. Inevitably, the subject of playing a superhero came up. And apparently Damon is not opposed to the idea, as long as his friend and Good Will Hunting partner is behind it.
Matt Damon was speaking with JoBlo during the course of his press tour, and revealed that he is actually open to playing a superhero. It just has to be under the right circumstances. Those circumstances just so happen to include his Bff Ben Affleck. Who just happens to be directing a new standalone Batman movie that he will star in and co-write.
"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."
