With reports mounting that Matt Damon could be set to join his long time friend Ben Affleck, who was last year confirmed as the new Batman, in the planned Justice League movie, the actor has moved to deny the story.
When asked about his potential involvement in the Zack Snyder helmed project, which will launch after Affleck makes his debut as the caped crusader in Batman vs. Superman, the actor was in good humour, saying:
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.
He didn't entirely rule it out though, claiming that he could consider a role as Aquaman if it could somehow help him promote his Water.org foundation which strives to provide fresh drinking water for those in poorer countries...
If dressing up in yellow tights somehow moved the needle on this issue, I would be willing to do that!I've done sillier stuff.
