Matt Damon is returning to his most popular role in this summer's Jason Bourne, but there's another action movie genre he'd love to take on next: superheroes, but with a catch.

“I’d consider anything with the right director, but I can’t imagine there are any superheroes left, I think they’re all taken at this moment," Damon told The Irish Examiner. "If [Ben] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben."

Damon and Affleck are childhood friends who came into the movie industry together, co-starring in several films such as Good Will Hunting and Dogma. Since then however, Affleck has segued to direct as much as he acts - including in the upcoming Batman film for Warner Bros.

“The problem with Ben is every time he directs a movie, he gives himself the best role in it," Damon continued. "So until he’s willing to give up the best role to one of his friends, we’re not going to get on with it.”

Which highlights an interesting point; for some, the previous Batman movies had better roles for the Dark Knight's adversaries than Batman himself.

Could you see Damon reuniting with Affleck on one of DC's superhero films perhaps as a Batman villain?
