Ben Affleck Explains His Batman Retirement And Sniffs Matt Damon's Thong

It was a busy visit for the "Triple Frontier" actor on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Ben Affleck said “it was time to let someone else take a shot” at playing Batman, explaining his recently confirmed retirement from the superhero role on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

But the momentous occasion wasn’t going to be honored with a mere talk-show interview.

It required showmanship, like Guillermo appearing in a Robin costume to present Affleck’s retired Batman cape, and Affleck sniffing a thong worn by pal Matt Damon when he played Liberace’s boyfriend in “Behind the Candelabra.”

Wait, what?

Watch above, and let the no-longer Dark Knight enlighten you.

CORRECTION: An earlier version misstated the title of the Liberace movie “Behind the Candelabra” as “Beyond the Candelabra.”
