With Ben Affleck becoming the new Batman, long time friend to Affleck, Matt Damon, has been fielding questions about which super hero he would play.

While Damon recently said he views Jason Bourne as a super hero - and one that could kick the sh-t out of Batman - in a new interview with the NY Daily News, Damon actually says he would like to play the Man Without Fear.

"For us it was always 'Daredevil' — that's the comic we read when we were kids. But when that one came along (in 2003) I chickened out, because I couldn't tell. I hadn't seen the director (Mark Steven Johnson's) work and I didn't know. So I just said, 'No.' Ben was like, 'I gotta do it.'

"And the movie ended up doing very well, even though I don't think Ben was ultimately very proud of it."

"If Chris Nolan came up to me and said, 'I want to do Daredevil,' I would be in."

"Just putting that out there," he joked.

More than likely Damon becoming Daredevil wouldn't happen as Charlie Cox plays the character for the Marvel Netflix series. Damon also commented about Affleck choosing to don the cape and cowl.

"I think he approached it the right way, which is, 'Can I make a great superhero movie?' rather than, 'Do I want to play a superhero?' I'd consider it if the right thing came along,

Matt Damon is currently filming the fifth Bourne movie, which has a July 29, 2016 release.
