Jimmy Kimmel Makes Fun Of Matt Damon's Role In Thor: Ragnarok

Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. In the on-screen adaptation, Abrams calls upon a star-studded cast, grabbing notable names like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Zach Galifianakis, Ty Burrell, Jon Hamm, Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Shaquille O'Neal. Abrams showed the pages of the original comic book - published by Kimmel Komix - on the air as Kimmel recalled his inspiration for his early creation. What those fans might not have been aware of, until now, is that both Ben Affleck and his good friend Matt Damon originally auditioned for the role in their youth.

The team included Muscle Man and Crayon Kid - plus there's an Oirish superhero in the mix in leprechaun hero Lucky Lad.

Has there ever been a better casting of a villain than Matt Damon as the arch enemy of Jimmy Kimmel's hero?

To celebrate Jimmy Kimmel's 50th birthday, celebrities surprised the talk-show host with a special edition of his popular segment, "Mean Tweets". We all suck. And you know why?

"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 begging for little bit parts in Thor", Kimmel said. Sure, you'll probably say to us, "Robin wasn't in that movie", and, technically, you'd be right, but the original plan was to include an origin story for the Boy Wonder.
