According to Jeff Sneider at The Wrap, Ben Affleck's best buddy, Matt Damon, might possibly play Aquaman in Zack Snyder's Justice League. No, this is not April Fool's.

Tonight's been a big night, we got confirmation of a Justice League film, as well as a director and even a possible release date. What's next? Well, it wouldn't seem like much of a Justice League if Warner Bros. didn't include the King of the Seven Seas. While many people assume that's the role Jason Momoa is slated for there appears to be a newcomer, Matt Damon ("Behind The Candelabra").
"One casting rumor that has been circulating around Hollywood for more than a year is that Affleck's close friend and collaborator Matt Damon is being sought to play Aquaman, though to be fair, Jason Momoa has also been rumored for that role (among others), and he is expected to appear in “Batman vs. Superman” in some unknown capacity." - Jeff Sneider

Could it be possible that Hollywood's favorite power couple, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, will team-up once again for Justice League? Maybe. The pair are best known for starring in and writing Good Will Hunting, which won them Oscars for best original screenplay.

Bad Ass Digest reports: "It's not yet clear if Aquaman will be joining them, but I've heard that early drafts of the script did feature the King of Atlantis, reimagined as more of a barbarian."

BATMAN/SUPERMAN - Zack Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay being written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.

Yeah right.

As funny as this sounds, Damon is very talented, and would also make sure the JL script is top notch. But I doubt it.

Lame. These rumors need to stop being regurgitated.
Bekss - 4/27/2014, 8:14 PM
I'm sure this is completely true

YeezusWept - 4/27/2014, 8:15 PM
Matt Damon?

ruadh - 4/27/2014, 8:15 PM
Damon's fine, Damon's talented. I like him in stuff. but come on, this is baloney.
Nappa - 4/27/2014, 8:15 PM
Honestly I hope Mamoa isnt Aquaman. He cannot act. The only time he was any good is when he is speaking a made uo language
Nappa - 4/27/2014, 8:16 PM
Matt Damon as Green Arrow maybe

Sounds like he's just going over past rumors, though I'd honestly love to see it. Damon is an awesome actor. I'd love to see him kick ass as the king of Atlantis.
ScorpioRisin - 4/27/2014, 8:17 PM
Could have been a great Luthor. They [frick]ed up.
Nappa - 4/27/2014, 8:17 PM
Mark Whalberg as Aquaman
Nappa - 4/27/2014, 8:17 PM
Leonardo DiCaprio as Booster Gold
TheDarkPassenger - 4/27/2014, 8:17 PM
Wasn't Matt Damon supposed to be Green Arrow in the cancelled SuperMax movie? And wasn't he supposed to have a look pretty close to what Amell is wearing right now?
BlackIceJoe - 4/27/2014, 8:18 PM
I don't want Matt. Matt is a great actor but will want to make an Aquaman movie into a very environmental movie. Yes Aquaman comics deal with those kind of issues but he will push it over the extreme.
Lozzy - 4/27/2014, 8:18 PM
By the way nail, what ever happened to that Josh Holloway cast in BVS scoop?
Nappa - 4/27/2014, 8:18 PM
I can easily see him as Green Arrow.

Now Matt Damon as Hush? :)
ThunderStorm - 4/27/2014, 8:22 PM
I really hope not.
SuperCat - 4/27/2014, 8:22 PM
Lmao @ DaVinci

I can picture Sally Struthers saying that.

superotherside - 4/27/2014, 8:23 PM
LOL. Great actor. Why doesn't he do another Bourne?

I know why just he should. But oh well.
DaVinci31 - 4/27/2014, 8:24 PM

I want it. I want him as BG. Now.

JoeMomma29 - 4/27/2014, 8:24 PM
LOL! This has to be fake!
YeezusWept - 4/27/2014, 8:24 PM
Sharlto Copley for Martian Manhunter.
KingOnslaught - 4/27/2014, 8:25 PM
If they pick damon for the film i wont even watch it
DaVinci31 - 4/27/2014, 8:26 PM

I thought you said Damon for BG. That's what I was referring to.

Guess I thought I just read that. I'm glad I did, though. That casting would be beyond perfect.
SuperCat - 4/27/2014, 8:27 PM
Thanks for posting those pics, @ nail. Now there's no f*ckin' way I can imagine Damon playing Aquaman.
KallarkKent - 4/27/2014, 8:27 PM
Golly, not sure to feel about this... Damon is a great actor so if true he'll be great I suppose.
