Would Matt Damon ever star in a superhero movie? The actor reveals that he turned down the Daredevil role that his friend Ben Affleck ended up taking over a decade ago. The reason he turned it down was not because he didn’t believe in the property, but instead because he wasn’t sure of director Mark Steven Johnson. Damon says he would play Daredevil on the big screen if Chris Nolan were to direct the movie. I’d also pay to see that. Hit the jump to read the Matt Damon Daredevil comments.

There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.
In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.
However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »

As of now, following his role as The Dark Knight in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we already know that Ben Affleck is going to stick around as Batman for another solo movie that he will also write and direct. However, it sounds like Warner Bros. wants to stay in the Batfleck business for a little longer.
A new rumor has surfaced saying that a screening of Batman v. Superman just took place for the film’s crew and Warner Bros. executive, and Zack Snyder‘s working cut of the movie got a standing ovation from those in attendance. That’s not hard to achieve in a room of people that worked on a movie, but reportedly Ben Affleck does such a good job in this movie that the studio wants him for an entire Batman trilogy instead of just one more more.

Warner Bros. has been in the Ben Affleck business for years, and that relationship only deepened after Affleck’s Argo won the Best Picture Oscar. But there’s a business that seemingly trumps the Ben Affleck biz, and that’s the superhero game. And so while WB has two Affleck films on the slate for the coming months — the already-shot The Accountant, and his next directorial effort Live By Night — the two films have been pushed back.
The supposition is that Warner Bros. is making room for more Batman, including the solo film to be co-written and directed by Affleck. Read More »
