Ben Affleck `will be great` as Batman: Matt Damon

Washington: Matt Damon has revealed that he believes that Ben Affleck will do a splendid job of being Batman in the ` Man of Steel ` sequel, despite sparking a wave of outrage on the social media.

The `Good Will Hunting` star came to the defense of his long time pal, saying that Batman was certainly within Affleck`s skill sets, CBS News reported.

Damon asserted that the kind of work Affleck`s been doing lately, like `Argo` or `The Town,` is more nuanced, interesting and way more difficult than Batman.

The actor added that Batman`s alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, is the more challenging part of the role, and Affleck will be great at that.
