At the Toronto International Film Festival, last Fall, Matt Damon made a pretty bold statement to E! News, arguing “Jason Bourne would kick the s–t out of Batman—absolutely!” There’s a ton of reasons this is comment is incorrect. Bourne is admittedly great, but Batman levels of great… Ben Affleck can handle this one.

Firing back on E! News, Affleck had this to say: “Matt is going around saying this all over the place but not to my face,” he told Maria Menounos. He continued, “but Matt can’t even beat me up, never mind Batman. You know what I’m saying? He has a long way to go.”

This is an argument that would most assuredly result in an exciting bout between the Dark Knight and the service officer turned assassination target, who’s slowly regaining his memory. Tell us what you think in the comments below. Who would win?

Batman v Superman hits theaters March 25 and Jason Bourne makes his return to the big screen on July 29, 2016.
