Actor Matt Damon, who’s very good friends with Ben Affleck who plays Batman in the DC Extended Universe, in a recent interview with Irish Examiner, while promoting his latest film Jason Bourne, spoke on the idea of doing a superhero film, after asked on Affleck’s role as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Seeing how Affleck is directing the upcoming Batman film, it’ll be interesting to see if Damon would be willing to take part of that series of films.
But he admitted that he would say yes to a superhero role if Ben could be persuaded to get behind the camera.
Speaking at the premiere of Jason Bourne, he said: “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.”
He continued: “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.”
