As Matt Damon prepares for the release of the highly anticipated Jason Bourne movie he was recently asked via interview with the Irish Examiner if he would he ever play a Superhero, to which he responded:
“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 said.
He continued: “If [Ben] was directing me, I’d jump on it in a New York minute. I’d love to work with Ben.”
For those that don't know Matt and Ben go way back. They broke into the movie game winning an Oscar together for best screenplay for Good Will Hunting. So it makes sense for Matt to say that he would only work with Ben on a superhero movie. Not to mention Ben has been dabbling in the Superhero genre himself a little bit.

Right now Ben is currently writing and will be directing his own solo Batman movie, so he is becoming really familiar with genre and I am sure Ben would direct his old buddy. Of course Matt's concern is that there are no superheroes left. But there is one that has been teased recently:
Although Suicide Squad is not in theaters yet, information about the location of the Suicide Squad's mission has been leaked for some time.

Collider also recently released confirmation of the location of Midway City in the DC Extended Universe.
Midway City — a city so named because it falls midway between Gotham and Metropolis — figures into the film.
Midway City is a fictional city in the DC Universe, the shared universe of comic book titles published by DC Comics. Midway City is most famous for once being the home of the Silver Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
Could Midway City be an Easter Egg to Hawkman and Hawkgirl in the DC Extended Universe? If so Hawkman is definitely a role that I could see Matt Damon playing. Besides, Batman and Hawkman have worked together before.
Maybe Hawkman could debut as a cameo in the Batman solo movie?
But those are my thoughts. Would you like to see Matt Damon play a superhero in a Ben Affleck directed the DC Extended Universe movie? Would Matt Damon make a good Hawkman? I personally think Matt would knock the roll out:
