But we shouldn't worry too much if he ends up leaving the franchise, because the actor may have found the flawless superhero part.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Affleck revealed that he and Damon used to audition for a lot of the same roles back when they had the same agent.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017. Putting aside the talks about his role in the #DCEU, the actor brought along a really cool birthday surprise. We go down there, and when we get into the room they tell us, 'We didn't want anyone to know about this and you need to keep it secret, but this is actually an audition for... Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten.

Abrams prompted Kimmel by pulling out the hand-drawn comic book that Kimmel created when he was nine or ten years old.

Kimmel is referring to Matt Damon's recent cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, where he played an Asgardian actor dressed as Loki. 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.

"It demanded to be brought to life", Abrams told Kimmel before the trailer screened. But Kimmel didn't seem to be offended, praising the clip as "the best present [he's] ever gotten". Unbelievable. Thank you, J.J. Abrams, thank you, Ben Affleck. Good job, Affleck and Co.

On the red carpet for the premiere of his new Justice League movie, Affleck was asked what plans he has for Thanksgiving. That's right. I'm talking about The Terrific Ten.
