Damon - who's set to reprise the character in the latest installment in the action movie franchise - has argued Bourne could easily defeat the iconic comic book character, played by his long-time friend Ben Affleck.

Asked who'd win in a fight between the two, Matt said: "Jason Bourne would kick the s**t out of Batman - absolutely!"

The 44-year-old actor also pointed out that Batman's immediate concern ought to be to overcome Superman in the much-anticipated 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

He told E! Online: "Batman's gotta take on Superman first. If he could beat him then maybe he could take on Jason Bourne."

Last month, meanwhile, Matt revealed he waited for "the world to change" before he decided to return to the 'Bourne' franchise.

He shared: "We always looked at those movies as really about the Bush presidency, and so we kind of had to wait for the world to change."

Matt also admitted he and director Paul Greengrass were struggling to think of a new storyline until former US National Security Agency worker Edward Snowden leaked classified information in 2013.

Matt said: "Without giving too much of it away, it's Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world."
