AceShowbiz - Ben Affleck has traded a few friendly jabs online with Chris Hemsworth after joking about losing his best friend Matt Damon to the "The Avengers" star. Damon has been spending an increasing amount of time with Hemsworth in recent months, visiting the Australian hunk in his native country thrice.
The growing friendship sparked tabloid rumours suggesting Damon had ditched his childhood pal Affleck for Hemsworth, and the "Justice League" star decided to have a little fun with the unfounded gossip online on Friday, April 20. "Hey @chrishemsworth, you can have him!," Ben tweeted as he made light of the reports.
He then referenced Matt's long-running feud with comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "I'm Team @JimmyKimmel anyways," noted Affleck, who portrays Batman in the new DC Comics movies.
The shout out prompted Kimmel to quip, "Wow. Another big win for #TeamBatman! Sorry Matt, I'm sure this is a Thor thubject (sic). #Iwilltakeeveryoneyoulove".
Getting in on the joke, Hemsworth pointed to Damon's comic book preferences, as his "Thor" and "Avengers" films are adaptations for DC rivals Marvel.
"Sorry mate not my fault!," Chris replied to Ben. "He's just a big @Marvel fan, not @DCComics. How do you like them apples..."
