"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."

Damon's statements mostly echo what director Zack Snyder said when it was announced that Affleck would play Batman in the "Man of Steel" sequel that Warner Bros. will release in 2015, though Snyder didn't use any of Damon's snark."

I found this at Huffington post, so I stand corrected. He should probably be more careful in the future, the absence of that one sentence made it look like he was bad-mouthing one of the most popular characters in existence.

Matt Damon has a message to comic book fans who are distraught over the surprise casting of his "Good Will Hunting" pal Ben Affleck as Batman. Relax, he's got this one covered.

"I think it will be great. It will be terrific. I know there are a lot of people grousing on the internet. I just think it's kind of funny," Damon told the Times of India. "You know, he's not playing King Lear. It's Batman! Certainly within his skill set."

Affleck's decision to follow the Bat signal and team up withHenry Cavill in a big screen blockbuster that will find Bruce Wayne's alter-ego sharing the screen with Superman has set off a wave of online protests. More than 80,000 have signed a petition on Change.orgasking for the role to be recast while others have taken to social media platforms like Twitter to voice their displeasure.

Although Damon expressed enthusiasm for Affleck's casting, he indicated that the part pales in comparison to his recent work.

"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!" Damon said. "Batman just sits there with his cowl over his head and whispers in a kinda gruff voice at people."

He's also ruling out a reunion that would find the 42-year old Damon playing a certain boy wonder.

"I am a little older than Ben," Damon said. "I never saw Robin as older than Batman."

I hate it when people treat Superheroes as sub-par roles just because their comic book characters. I'm sorry, but someone dealing with the trauma of witnessing their parents death and being helpless to prevent it, then spending the rest of their life fighting to make sure no kid experiences that same trauma is a little more "nuanced" and "interesting" than a bank robber from boston.

@Vitacura: Have you not seen Young Justice? That's the whole point, even when they win, they lose. the bad guys always get what they want.

Promo for next episode and if tv has taught me anything, it's that "talking" is never a good sign for couples.

They would need to have better art and write for teens and adults, not 9 year olds, but yeah, I would follow the story in comic form.
