Ben Affleck was Jimmy Kimmel’s guest last night, and he had some bad news for the talk show host — his scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t make the final cut.

Affleck let Kimmel down gently, explaining that his scene was simply “too awesome” to leave in the finished film. Luckily, he brought the “deleted” scene with him so audiences would still be able to enjoy Kimmel’s performance.

In the hilarious scene, Kimmel plays an obnoxious party guest who sees straight through the disguises of Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Affleck), before a few more famous faces appear and really put the skit over the top. It’s a must-watch.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — which, sadly, won’t feature Jimmy Kimmel — is in cinemas Thursday 24 March.
