Matt Damon on Ben Affleck Playing Batman: “He’s not playing King Lear”

Matt Damon supports Ben Affleck as the new Batman.

Affleck was announced as the new Batman, for the upcoming Superman-Batman flick and some fans are not too happy with the choice. On top of being the butt of jokes, on Twitter with the trending topic #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck, various Batman fans have stared petitions to get the Argo director removed from the film.

Actor Matt Damon has vocalized his thoughts on his pal’s new role.

During a recent  interview for his new movie Elysium Damon said, “I think it will be great.”

He 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.”
