Matt Damon Denies Aquaman Rumours Again Joking 'I Just Dress Up As Robin'

By Cameron Gray - 5/2/2014

Ever since Ben Affleck was announced as the successor to Christian Bale in the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, many fans guessed that Matt Damon, long time friend and frequent collaborator of Affleck would join a DC Comics movie adaption.

However, in an interview with CNBC Meets, Damon has once again clarified those rumors as false joking : "Since they made Ben Batman, I've been showing up at his house every day dressed as Robin, but my little campaign I don't think has gone too well so far."

The Bourne Identity actor did admit that he might consider the role if it could benefit his charity saying: "If dressing up in yellow tights somehow moved the needle on this issue, I would be willing to do that," he teased. "I've done sillier stuff."

Do you think Matt Damon would make a good Aquaman? Sound off your thoughts and feelings below!


Tentively titled Batman vs. Superman, the movie is directed by Zack Snyder from a story by David Goyer and screenplay by Chris Terrio, and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Tao Okamoto, Callan Mulvey, with Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, and Jeremy Irons. And as of right now, the film is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.

Lol, nice comment. They should get the actor that plays Flint from Black Sails, for Aquaman.

I don't know if Damon is going to be Aquaman, but i would surely not be suprised if he at least got a role in DCU because of his firendship with Affleck :P

I don't want him for the role. It may not be the worst thing that can happen, but there have been better names thrown around.

Did he just call CBM's.... silly?

I suppose it's decent of him to suggest that he would take the role seriously if he could make it work with something that he is passionate about, but it really seems like he has no interest in getting involved either way. Seems like a case of just saying what people want to hear.

UltimateTypeface - 5/2/2014, 4:05 AM

DrunkenNukem - 5/2/2014, 7:02 AM
Stay away from DC you Barbara Streisand wannabe

Starfox - 5/2/2014, 7:33 AM

I like both those choices. I think Dude from Supernatural would make a Great Green Lantern.
Starfox - 5/2/2014, 7:35 AM
thanks for calling me a Dumbass Niklander.

I have said it in the past and I will say it again I hope not. I like Matt as an actor but he would want to make this movie into a very big environmental movie. Which seeing as it is an Aquaman movie it should have some but a more subtle way.

There is so many actors that could work for Aquaman. But it will also depend on what way they wasn't to go with him. Be it the more savage way of the 90s or how he has been shown in the last few years.

Names like Sean Bean, Mark Valley, Kevin McKid, Philip Winchester, Josh Lucas, David Wenham, Josh Duhamel, Josh Holloway & Ewan McGregor come to mind. There is many other people too. It's not that hard to come up with people to play him. So I can't wait to see who gets the job.

Also I hope they use Orcas instead of the great white shark. There's a reason the Orca is called the killer whale. Just google orcas vs great whites and you will see why Orcas are a more dangerous creature Arthur could use.
