Bourne is tougher than Batman: Matt Damon

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actor Matt Damon says the hard work required of him for next installment of The Bourne series has bulked him up, so much so that he is bigger than Batman.


Chatting at the premiere of his new film The Martian, Damon said: “Ben Affleck really bulked up for Batman, he was huge. He put on 30 lb of muscle or something, but I’m doing Jason Bourne now so I think I’ve got him. I think he may have lost his Batman form too,” Damon said.

He added: “Anyway Bourne is tougher than Batman without a doubt.”

Matt’s recent release, The Martian, based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel of the same name, follows Astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) who is stranded on Mars after his team, led by actor Jessica Chastain’s Captain Lewis, presume he is dead in the aftermath of a powerful Martian storm.

With no means of communicating and the next manned mission to Mars four years away, Watney tries to survive on the deserted lands of Mars, using his skills as a botanist to grow food using Martian soil.
