Matt Damon Would Play A Superhero If Ben Affleck Directs

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are one of the most success collaborating partnerships in Hollywood, having won Academy Awards for their writing in the drama classic Good Will Hunting, so it’s no wonder they prefer to partner up when it comes to certain projects.

Speaking recently in an interview for his latest installment in the Jason Bourne franchise, Damon was asked if he’d like to play a superhero in the near future, perhaps one of the only things missing from the Oscar-winners CV.

“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”Matt Damon

You certainly can’t blame the guy for sticking with his best mate when it comes to donning a superhero costume, especially considering Ben Affleck is one of the most in-demand directors around, having won the Academy Award for Best Director a couple of years ago for the biopic thriller Argo – not to mention his involvement with Warner Bros. and DC Comics as their new Batman.

Sadly it’s highly unlikely that Matt Damon will play a superhero, however with Affleck set to direct himself in the upcoming solo Batman film, perhaps it could still happen – though I doubt Damon would want to play Batman’s sidekick Robin.
