While Matt Damon has been an excellent Robin for his longtime friend and onscreen Batman Ben Affleck, reports claim that Damon actually auditioned for the role of Robin in the Batman Franchise. Talking about it in a candid interview, Damon agreed that he once auditioned for Robin’s parts.
Talking about this on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Damon revealed that he had auditioned for the role of Robin in 1995’s Batman Forever and 1997’s Batman and Robin movies. Not only this, he also confirmed that he was part of the final three actors who were taken into consideration for the role.
