I just died. LITerally died. In a CosmicBookNews article detailing Ben Affleck’s unprecedented 13-“appearance” deal as Batman (think Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury popping up in every Marvel movie in the run-up to Avengers) and Bryan Cranston’s six-appearance deal as Lex Luthor (I’m not on board with ANY OF THIS, mind you), there was THIS throwaway little nugget: “DC also does have major interest in bringing Matt Damon into the Justice League now that Affleck is on board, and it is rumored that he is being considered for Aquaman or Martian Manhunter.” SQUEEEEEEEEEEE. My two greatest loves! Together at last! Matt Damon as Aquaman! Can you IMAGINE?! The glory! The magnificence! The MAJESTY that IS Arthur Curry, King of Atlantis! It’s too much to even dream of! And even if he’s only cast as the Martian Manhunter – not one of my favorite characters mind you – I wouldn’t be TOO upset because after all, the Manhunter IS shirtless and ripped and clad only in a pair of Speedos and a cape. And a green Matt Damon might be sort of nice. So let’s MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PEOPLE. As I see it, it’s the ONLY upshot of the otherwise dodgy casting of Affleck. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
