It doesn't seem that long ago that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were two fresh-faced actors who took home Oscar gold for writing the original screenplay for Good Will Hunting. Now they are two of the biggest stars in Hollywood, with Matt Damon returning to play Jason Bourne in an Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, set for release next July, and Ben Affleck starring as Batman in next March's highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While promoting his sci-fi drama The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, Matt Damon was asked by E! Online who he thinks would win in a fight, Jason Bourne or Batman.
"Jason Bourne would kick the s--t out of Batman-absolutely! Batman's gotta take on Superman first," he added. "If he could beat him then maybe he could take on Jason Bourne."
Both of their respective projects hit theaters next year, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuting on March 25, 2016 and the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel given a July 29, 2016 release date. Unfortunately, those two dates are two far apart for these movies to face each other in theaters, but they will both probably perform quite well at the box office. Production just started last week on the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, and when asked why he hasn't played a superhero yet, Matt Damon said he considers Jason Bourne his own superhero.
"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."
We've seen two trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice so far, but we haven't seen yet if Ben Affleck will change his voice when Bryce Wayne is suited up as Batman, like Christian Bale's raspy Batman voice in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. When asked if he has heard his friend's "Batman voice," Matt Damon had this to say.
"I haven't been like, 'Come on, dude, just do it once.' I haven't asked him to talk Batman yet, but now maybe I will."
It isn't known when the third and, perhaps, final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released, but perhaps that footage will give us a better look at the actor in his Batsuit, along with his Batman voice. Do you think Ben Affleck should have a raspy Batman voice in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more details.
