has posted a rumor that Matt Damon may play the role of The Green Arrow in the currently in pre-pre-production SuperMax movie penned by David Goyer. The film tells the story of a falsely accused Ollie Queen stripped of his hero gig and thrown into a super maximum security prison where he has to make a prison break with a bunch of B and C-list DC villains.

I met Matt Damon yesterday in the city during his break from the 3rd installment of The Bourne Identity series and I asked him if he was doing any comic book movies. He told me he was in the middle of negotiating the starring role in The Green Arrow movie!!

  1. Is it weird that I could see Matt Damon as Hawkeye before I could see him as Green Arrow? Maybe it’s the thought of Damon with Ollie’s goatee?

    Well, since a Blue Beetle/Booster Gold movie starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson will never get made, I’ll definitely check this out…if it makes it out.

    I think it’s an age thing. Hawkeye feels (in my mind) more contemporary of Damon, whereas Green Arrow feels more 40ish, more of a John Schneider role.
