When appearing on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the current actor having the privilege of playing Batman somehow got on the topic of what life was like for him and his longtime friend/colleague Matt Damon much earlier in their careers.

Justice League hits theaters this Friday! Putting aside the talks about his role in the #DCEU, the actor brought along a really cool birthday surprise. Aside from Damon, the trailer was packed with other celebrities, such as #JenniferAniston (Laser Lass), Jason Bateman (Bendolite), Zack Galifanakis (Super Duck), Billy Crudup (Color Kid), Shaquille O'Neal (Spire), Ty Burrell (Mirgiv), fellow Batman #WillArnett (Meinstrom), Jon Hamm (Lucky Lad), Cousin Sal (Super Sal), #BenAffleck (Muscle Man), and Wanda Sykes (The Bleach Master).

The filmmaker delivered a almost seven-minute trailer for a "The Terrific Ten", a superhero flick based on a comic book that Kimmel penned when he was about 10 years old. "And they demanded to be brought to life".

"That's so sad though, in a way, that you went on to become Batman - not only didn't he get to be Robin, he's like begging for little bit parts in Thor." ".

"We all suck!" Damon's villain Dr. Bolt cries at the end of the trailer. The rest of the story will have to remain in Kimmel's head, until Abrams hopefully gets financed on Kickstarter to make the real thing. Good job, Affleck and Co. News at the premiere of Justice League on Monday.
