Matt Damon, we need you on this one.
It is well documented that Damon has a deep love for the comic world. News dropped this weekend that Matt nearly entered the Marvel world in the past, and is still open to parts barring things match up to his liking.
What do we have to do to make this possible?
According to his interview with the New York Daily News, Damon (no Affleck,) nearly starred in Daredevil years ago.
“For us it was always ‘Daredevil’ — that’s the comic we read when we were kids,” says Damon. “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.."
He later went on to mention that he would still be open to a remake of the movie, barring one detail is in place:
“If Chris Nolan came up to me and said, ‘I want to do Daredevil,’ I would be in.”
What are we waiting for? Someone get Nolan on the line now!
I would love to see Damon play Daredevil (or just about any Marvel character on the way, Matt's a great actor).
