Matt Damon says he’d play a superhero if Ben Affleck directed it

Ok, here’s a thought… Matt Damon is up for playing a super hero.

His only stipulation? A good director – preferably his old pal Ben Affleck. which surely means it would have to be a DC Character?

“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 [Affleck] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben!”

The actor was responding to the suggestion that he could now play Robin to Affelck’s Batman:  “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.” 

But here’s the thing… the can definitely see him as the DC Cinematic Universe’s Green Arrow.

Are we on our own? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
