Matt Damon Says Jason Bourne Would Beat Batman


Actor Matt Damon who’s best friends with Ben Affleck, who’s playing Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was at Toronto International Film Festival promoting his latest film The Martian, where he was asked by Entertainment Weekly on who would win in a fight between his character Jason Bourne, from The Bourne Identity series or Batman.

Damon had this to say:

“Jason Bourne would kick the s–t out of Batman—absolutely!” Damon said with a big smile “Batman’s gotta take on Superman first,” he added. “If he could beat him then maybe he could take on Jason Bourne.”

Damon was also asked if he’s heard Affleck’s Batman voice:

“I haven’t been like, ‘Come on, dude, just do it once,'” Damon said with a laugh. “I haven’t asked him to talk Batman yet, but now maybe I will.”

Damon on never playing a superhero character before:

“I think they’re kind of out of superheroes,” Damon said. “Ben’s going to be like the sixth or seventh Batman, so I don’t think there’s really any left. So I’m good. Jason Bourne is my superhero.”

  • Forgive him Lord, for he knoweth not the idiotic things he sayeth.

    • His comment on Jason being able to beat Batman I could bare, because Batman without his gadgets I can somewhat see it being a fair fight between the two. But the comment about there no longer being any superheroes to play… WHA?!?!

        I think the whole thing was sort of in jest. Let’s not forget that Ben and Matt are childhood friends, so he was probably just being humorous, but again, it WOULD make sense he’d support his own character, :P. Bourne is a bad ass, in a purely hand to hand combat I can see him taking on the Bat. He’d definitely crush Bond, any incarnation of the character, to be honest.

        I just love Bourne. 😛
