I'd work with Ben again!
But are there any Superheroes left?
Since the day Ben Affleck was cast as Batman people have made jokes that his best friend Matt Damon should be Robin. Obviously the 45-year-old actor is too old for that role, but he wouldn’t rule out playing a superhero entirely.
At the premiere of his new movie Jason Bourne, Damon told Irish Examiner that he’d consider playing a superhero if the right director was attached, especially if it was his good friend Ben Affleck.
“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,” Damon said.
He continued: “If [Ben] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben.”

As Ben is directing and playing the lead role in the next stand alone BATMAN movie in the next couple of years is Matt too old for Robin? Well ... yes, but surely he could still be Dick Grayson!
Probably not Nightwing, although that would be awesome to see on the big screen, but considering his Jason Bourne role, how about Secret Agent Grayson! Would this be too similar?
Who knows what may be in store for us all, but in my opinion they have the best actor yet to once again play the role of BATMAN plus he'll be directing too, so it couldn't get much better. If somehow we got Matt in there too, there is no way on earth the so called critics (and I use that term loosely) and Marvel'ites could do the same again and destroy the film like they did with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!
