It’s no secret that there have been mixed feelings about Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader in the forthcoming “Batman vs. Superman” flick but his buddy Matt Damon is geeked for the gig.

During an interview with MTV News, the “Monuments Men” actor had nothing but positive things to say about his “Good Will Hunting” pal and the newly-designed Batsuit.

Damon gushed, “I’ve seen a picture [of Ben in the suit]. I have seen a picture. It’s excellent. And I’ve talked to him about the story line and it’s great.”

Previously, director/producer/actor/writer Kevin Smith sang the praises of Affleck’s new role- "Now, I don't want to give anything away because that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this: I instantly bear-hugged [director Zack Snyder]. You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before. And for a comic-book fan, it was mind-bending."
