One of the most well-known segments of Jimmy Kimmel Live! is when the host has celebrities read mean tweets about themselves, but for Kimmel's 50th birthday, his team made a decision to flip the script and have stars read mean tweets about Kimmel.
The filmmaker delivered a almost seven-minute trailer for a "The Terrific Ten", a superhero flick based on a comic book that Kimmel penned when he was about 10 years old. "So I was able to start this really, really exciting superhero project that's my next thing, and it's awesome".
Kimmel is referring to Matt Damon's recent cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, where he played an Asgardian actor dressed as Loki. Jon Hamm! That's a movie that I would see, especially when they're playing the likes of characters like Muscle Man ("I'm a man... with muscles") or Laser Lass ("I'm the lady one!") in a bonkers superhero movie trailer directed by the one and only J.J. Abrams. "They demanded to be brought to life". Abrams showed the pages of the original comic book - published by Kimmel Komix - on the air as Kimmel recalled his inspiration for his early creation. "We all suck", he says of their superpowers. "Can you get it?' And I said, 'Ya know, I have some connections.' And then he told me who he wanted to be". "We were created by a weird, sad kid who grew to later become a weird, fat man. F-- Kimmel".
