He’d make for one hell of a Hush.
In an interview with The Irish Examiner, he revealed the one condition that would get him to play a superhero.
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 (Ben) was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben.
I know he said a superhero, and while that would it be great, it would be awesome if he was the villain, Hush, in a Ben Affleck Directed Batman movie. He looks the part, and him and Affleck being best friends would make the dynamic even stronger. If you don’t know Thomas Elliot/ Hush is a renowned plastic surgeon. He and Bruce Wayne started out as best friends. Thomas hate his parents and grew to hate Bruce when Thomas Wayne saved his mother’s life, after Thomas cut the break line of his parent’s car. Only Thomas’ father died in the crash.
What superhero would you like to see Matt Damon play? Not a superhero, but he was on WB’s list for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman. He was apparently also rumored for Aquaman in the same movie, but that seemed like it was just a joke.
