It may have been 15, years since Matt Damon and Ben Affleck won the Oscar for Good WIll Hunting -- but these buds are clearly friends to the end!

Matt Damon was spotted leaving LAX on Tuesday and when asked about his pal Ben taking on the role of Superman in the Man of Steel sequel, the Elysium star jokingly said, "I think it's a matter of national security... I'm glad the President's involved."

Sounds like Damon is all for the Argo star to take on the high-flying role.

If his best pal is Batman does that mean Damon could possibly play the role of Robin? Damon declined to comment on the chances -- but we can dream!

Damon next lends his talents to the Terry Gilliam fantasy flick, The Zero Theorem, due out in theaters Dec. 19.
