Los Angeles - Matt Damon has ruled out playing a comic book character. 

While the 45-year-old actor is happy to support his best friend Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he has no desire to take on a similar role for himself. 

Matt told Variety: "I hear its good. I haven't seen it yet but he's seen a rough cut and I think he's very pleased. But no, I don't know that there are any comic book characters left."

Matt also revealed he is thrilled to be playing Jason Bourne again and is halfway through filming the latest movie in the Bourne franchise.

He said: "We're, like, probably about halfway through. We started in September but they're going dark for most of December and cutting basically the first two acts. And then we have the third act and then whatever we owe from the first two acts.

"I wasn't sure. I hoped I wasn't finished because I really liked the franchise and the character but I didn't see a way to go. But I wasn't giving up on the idea of doing it. Director Paul Greengrass and I kind of talked years ago about perhaps the way forward was just to let time pass and allow the world to change a little."
