Matt Damon Praises Ben Affleck’s Batman Casting
Ever since the news was announced, Ben Affleck has been getting flack for signing on to play Batman in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel. But Matt Damon can’t wait to see his buddy as the Caped Crusader.
During an interview for his new flick “Elysium,” the “Bourne Identity” hunk enthusiastically declared, “I think it will be great.”
Matt continued, "It will be terrific. I know there are a lot of people grousing on the internet. I just think it's kind of funny. You know, he's not playing King Lear. It's Batman!”
“It’s certainly within his skill set. If anybody saw 'Argo' or 'The Town,' and all the work he's been doing lately, it's way more nuanced and interesting and way more difficult than Batman! Batman just sits there with his cowl over his head and whispers in a kinda gruff voice at people. Bruce Wayne is the more challenging part of the role, and Ben will be great at that... But it's safe to say I won't be Robin."
