JJ Abrams Adapts Jimmy Kimmel's Childhood Comic Book

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, J.J. Abrams and other stars created a hilarious short film to celebrate Jimmy Kimmel's 50th birthday. One of those roles was for a secret project, which ended up being the 1989 Batman film starring Michael Keaton. 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! Affleck reflected on the great chemistry the Justice League stars had with each other on set and how uncomfortable his Batman costume is before revealing why he chose to put the suit on in the first place.

But the blushing, guffawing Kimmel definitely seemed to appreciate it.

Abrams had Kimmel run down the various superheroes, which included Muscle Man, Super Duck, and Color Kid. It emerged on his show that as a prepubescent kid, he wrote a comic called The Terrific Ten. 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. The resulting parody trailer is a very amusing piece of work, from its Marvel-aping company credit at the start to its highly accurate closing shot - a ideal recreation of Kimmel's childhood drawing. We all suck. And you know why?

"That's so sad though, in a way, that you went on to become Batman - not only didn't he get to be Robin, he's like begging for little bit parts in Thor." ". You could argue was an unnecessarily nasty piece of humor to put in.

"That was the best gift I ever got", Kimmel said. From an outsider's perspective, it's just nice to see a childhood flight of fancy brought to life by genuine movie stars.
