Ben Affleck, Matt Damon star in superhero short for Jimmy Kimmel's birthday

However, a recent interview with Ben Affleck reveals Burton had originally planned to add the Boy Wonder, and that he and Matt Damon auditioned for the part. Sure, he may have been Daredevil at one point, but there's no way the studio would've ever cast a former Robin as the Dark Knight.

To celebrate Jimmy Kimmel's 50th birthday, the team at Jimmy Kimmel Live! surprised the late-night host with a special edition of their popular segment, "Mean Tweets". "I wish to God he had gotten that part!" "I'll go after the movie starts a little bit so people aren't distracted". The actor was there to promote his film "Justice League" (opening Friday), but that also provided the ideal segue for Affleck to "surprise" the birthday boy with a gift.

The trailer plays out like any superhero movie created through the lens of a kid hugely influenced by reading too much of The Fantastic Four: there's a plot to destroy the world, Matt Damon cackles a lot, an evil bottle of bleach is played by Wanda Sykes.
