Jason Bourne Would Kick The Shit Out Of Batman, Says Matt Damon

Batman is one of the most well-known superheroes of this generation. He’s been played by different actors through the years, but one thing is for certain: Batman can kick ass. Not only is he an extremely talented fighter, but he’s also a great tactician that makes use of his environment and the gadgets at his disposal to defeat any enemy that comes his way. He might not have any powers, but he is considered one of the greatest heroes just because he can hold his own against even the strongest villains. But what if he faced someone just as skilled in combat and has a ton of experience beating up bad guys just like Batman? No, we’re not talking about the characters that he has faced in the comics who fit this description. We’re talking about CIA assassin Jason Bourne.

Jason Bourne actor Matt Damon left the Bourne filming location to attend the Toronto Film Festival this weekend for the highly successful premiere of his latest film – Ridley Scott’s The Martian. And when asked by E! on who would win in a fight between Batman and Bourne, here’s what he has to say:

Jason Bourne would kick the shit out of Batman—absolutely! Batman's gotta take on Superman first. If he could beat him then maybe he could take on Jason Bourne.

Some fans might think this is a jab at Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this is all in good fun since as some might not now, Matt Damon is best friends with Ben Affleck. He also jokingly said that he might ask Affleck to do his Batman voice when he was asked if he’s ever heard it.

Matt Damon also shared his thoughts about portraying a superhero, saying that he is already playing a superhero in Jason Bourne.

I think they're kind of out of superheroes. Ben's going to be like the sixth or seventh Batman, so I don't think there's really any left. So I'm good. Jason Bourne is my superhero.

Although the industry is definitely not out of superheroes to adapt from the comics, this does say that Damon isn’t interested in adapting a superhero from the comics. And while a lot of actors are jumping on the superhero train, he’s good enough on playing Jason Bourne.

He does have a point in Jason Bourne being a superhero. The first photo revealed from the filming location on their first day of production shows that Matt Damon as Jason Bourne definitely has the physique of a superhero. He might not have a costume, but all he needs is his skills and his smarts to save the day.

Bourne 5 is currently filming and will also feature Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel, Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), and Julia Stiles, who is reprising her role as Nicky Parsons. It is set to premiere to U.S. theaters on July 29, 2016.
