Matt Damon and Ben Affleck may be besties off-screen but Matt thinks that his on-screen alter ego Jason Bourne would beat Ben’s Batman in a fight. During the Toronto Film Festival where Matt is promoting his newest movie, The Martian, he talked superheroes with the press.
Matt laughed and joked that he could envision a Jason Vs. Batman film, only if Batman wins in the upcoming Justice League flick Batman Vs. Superman. “Jason Bourne would kick the s–t out of Batman—absolutely! Batman’s gotta take on Superman first. If he could beat him then maybe he could take on Jason Bourne.”
Damon is okay not playing a costumed superhero because Jason Bourne is superhero enough for him. “I think they’re kind of out of superheroes. 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.”
Are you excited about the upcoming Batman movie? I’m curious to see how the fandom feels about it once they’ve seen it!
