JJ Abrams gave Jimmy Kimmel an epic surprise gift

JJ Abrams gave Jimmy Kimmel an epic surprise gift

IT TOOK only four decades for host Jimmy Kimmel to see his boyhood art come to dazzling, star-studded life.

There's been a lot of speculation regarding Ben Affleck's involvement in the DCEU as Batman throughout the past few weeks.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, Affleck chatted about what it was like growing up as a child actor, talking about his birthday parties as a kid (one of them even included a belly dancer) and helping BFF Damon get an agent.

GameStop Temporarily Halts PowerPass Unlimited Used Games Rental Service
According to leaked documentation regarding PowerPass, the service was supposed to officially launch on November 19. It was a decent way to incentivize going to GameStop rather than just downloading all of your games.

Others in the trailer include Jon Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Will Arnett, Ty Burrell, and Damon as the villainous Dr. Bolt.

Affleck was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he showed a clip from of Bruce Wayne, played by himself, interacting with the Flash, played by Ezra Miller. Doctor Bolt is the villain in question in this trailer, and playing the baddie is none other than Matt Damon, along with his sidekick, played by Wanda Sykes.

Jimmy Kimmel seemed to be genuinely surprised by this weird birthday treat. "Can you get it?' And I said, 'Ya know, I have some connections.' And then he told me who he wanted to be". While there's a degree of insincerity in the talk show news cycle, this bit seems truly sweet and genuine - you can tell by the the way that Kimmel hides his face and chuckles throughout Abrams' introduction of the comic book and the trailer that he didn't expect a gift of this magnitude. "We were created by a weird, sad kid who grew to later become a weird, fat man. F-- Kimmel". 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.
