JJ Abrams Adapts Jimmy Kimmel's Childhood Comic Book

JJ Abrams Adapts Jimmy Kimmel's Childhood Comic Book

Batman star Ben Affleck, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about his upcoming film Justice League when the topic wavered over to Matt Damon.

The cast of this jokey trailer is one that any film would be proud to have.

While Kimmel's childhood comic heroes probably made sense to him as a kid, heroes like Super Duck (Zach Galifianakis) and Spire (Shaquille O'Neal) seem to have no discernible powers other than being able to fly (awkwardly) and hold a giant club, respectively. And it helps that the rest of the stars, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Cousin Sal, Shaq, Ty Burrell, Billy Crudup, and Jake Tapper, give their all in their hammy over-the-top performances.

The team included Muscle Man and Crayon Kid - plus there's an Oirish superhero in the mix in leprechaun hero Lucky Lad. Batman's got one of the most impressive, deep rogue galleries in all of comics, and I think it's time more of them were given the love they deserve! The actor has big plans for his holiday celebration next week, and they involve some special people in his life-including his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. "I took this exact book [as a script]; I didn't change a word".

Damon shows up as their the evil, melodramatic nemesis, Dr. Bolt, it shows just how successful and loved Jimmy Kimmel has become in Hollywood.

Yep, I'm not at all surprised that Matt Damon played the ultimate bad guy in Kimmel's story.

"We all suck", he says of their superpowers.

If you've watched Batman recently, you know there was no Robin character in the film (or its sequel)."No, they didn't end up using it", Affleck said.

After Abrams and Affleck debuted their project, Kimmel called it "the best gift I ever got".
