Abrams and Affleck really pulled out all the stops for the trailer, as the titular Ten were played by some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Jennifer Anniston as Laser Lass, Zach Galifianakis as Super Duck, Jon Hamm as Lucky Lad, Shaq as Spire the God of Weapons, Ty Burrell as Mirgiv the Magician, and Will Arnett as Meinstrom the God of Weather.

As Affleck recalled in his interview with Kimmel, they weren’t told what they were auditioning for ahead of time. It was a “secret project” and they each had to learn a “dummy generic scene.” However, when they got to the audition, the casting directors told Affleck and Damon that they were auditioning for the role of Robin in Burton’s Batman film.

Watch The Trailer For Jimmy Kimmel And JJ Abrams' Hilarious Comic Book Movie Idea

Let’s talk about ‘The Jimmy Kimmel Test’ for a second, and not the one that you thinkThe current caped crusader shared that he teamed up with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams to create a trailer for the movie The Terrific Ten. Never heard of The Terrific Ten? That’s because it’s a comic Kimmel created when he was ten-years-old and the trailer is every bit as hilarious, stupid, and awesome as you would hope (and expect) it to be.

In alternate timeline, Ben Affleck would’ve been the first actor to play both Batman and Robin on the big screen. Either that, or Matt Damon would’ve hit the big time at a much younger age.The entire trailer is incredibly silly in the best possible way. Hopefully, it won’t be the last time we see The Terrific Ten save the world from Dr. Bolt’s nefarious scheming.

Back on the show, Affleck also discussed growing up with Damon, and revealed that when they were young, both auditioned and failed to land the role of Robin in one of Tim Burton’s early Batman films. (Neither 1989’s Batman nor 1992’s Batman Returns, the two Burton-directed Batman films, ultimately included a Robin character.)

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.

He does have a point: Wanda Sykes plays a talking box of bleach. Still, a full version of this would have to be at least as entertaining as the Fantastic Four adaptions.”Wow… That was the best gift I ever got. Unbelievable. Thank you, J.J. Abrams, thank you, Ben Affleck. Muscle Man, I imagined myself in that role, but you were unbelievable.”

However, Affleck said Burton and the producers decided against including Robin in the flick because “it was an ambiguous relationship.” Of course, Chris O’Donnell eventually played Robin in Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever and Batman & Robin and it basically killed his career.Letterman couldn’t help but be the subject of his own mean tweet as he read, “Jimmy Kimmel is not funny. Neither is David Letterman.” Thor: Ragnarok has dominated the box office for the last two weekends, and director Taika Waititi has not shied away from the fact that he considers the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure a comedy. Similarly, early critical responses to Justice League have widely praised the lighter tone, which generally seems like an indication that many audiences want more fun and humor in their comic book movies. There’s no way of knowing if The Terrific Ten could ever become a real film, but its emphasis on fun means the time may actually be right for it.
