Looks like Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t help but fire shots at Matt Damon during Ben Affleck’s visit on his late night show last night.

Justice League is making its big debut this Friday and the DC Extended Universe’s Batman star Ben Affleck went up on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk more about the reprisal of his role as the Dark Knight in the upcoming superhero team-up movie.

During the interview, Affleck decided to share a story about how he auditioned for the part of Robin alongside Damon years back. Though neither of them won the role, Affleck eventually became the DCEU’s Batman, one that’s being praised by fans as the most comic book accurate live-action versions of the Caped Crusader to date.

Listening to the story, Kimmel couldn’t pass up the chance to make fun of Damon again, throwing in some jabs at the actor’s comic book movie experience.

"That's so sad though in a way that you went on to become Batman," Kimmel said. "Not only didn't he get to become Robin, he's like begging for little bit parts in Thor. He's like Loki Jr. in Thor."

Marvel fans might remember that Damon appeared during the early parts of Thor: Ragnarok in a play recreating Loki’s (Tom Hiddleston) death in Thor: The Dark World. While Luke Hemsworth plays the part of Thor, Damon takes on Loki on stage.

Guess Kimmel wasn’t a fan of Damon’s short Marvel stint which is a shame since a lot of fans loved the cameo.

Thor: Ragnarok is currently screening in cinemas. Justice League is scheduled to premiere this Friday, November 17, 2017.
