Matt Damon said that he’d “jump” at the chance to be a superhero if Ben Affleck was directing. And while we ponder that reunion that will never happen, we have to ask: “What superhero role would you like to see Matt Damon in?”

The quote comes from the Irish Examiner, and Damon added another condition to being in an Affleck Batman movie:

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 he (Ben) 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


Look, far be it from us to make a call about what the best Batman role would be. But we have only one thing to say:

Anyway, make your own suggestions. Serious or... not.
