Jimmy Kimmel Unmasks Batman, Superman in ‘Dawn of Justice’ Deleted Scene

Late-night host figures out who Clark Kent looks like without his glasses in (fake) scene cut from blockbuster

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice served as the centerpiece of Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscars special as Ben Affleck sat down to talk about the upcoming blockbuster and premiere a (fake) deleted scene from the film featuring the late-night host.

The scene plays on the movie’s out-of-costume confrontation at an art gallery between Affleck’s Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent, with Kimmel appearing as an obnoxious partygoer who instantly recognizes the duo without their costumes on. Kimmel continues to tell anyone who will listen that these two men are the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, even broadcasting the encounter on Periscope. Kimmel then alerts the party’s host, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, that two superheroes are in the house.

The breaking point comes when Kimmel leads the art gallery in a rendition of Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” (“Superman dat ho”), which makes Clark Kent break out of character in order to throw Kimmel across the solar system. The late-night host lands on Mars, where he meets an old adversary.

Affleck also appeared as a guest on the show with a twist: After walking onto the set in what appeared to be a fat suit, the actor turned out to be hiding Matt Damon, a longtime pseudo-adversary of Kimmel who attended couples therapy with the host last year.
