Batman is headed for Hollywood.

Ben Affleck, who will play the iconic superhero in the upcoming Batman v. Superman film, will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live's annual After the Oscars special, it was announced Thursday.

Affleck is just one part of a star-studded lineup that also includes Tracy Morgan, J.K. Simmons and Mike Tyson, as well as longtime Broadway co-stars Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane . (Does this mean there will be a Producers song-and-dance?)

Affleck will be joined by his co-stars Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, and Jesse Eisenberg, who takes on the role of Lex Luthor in the March film.

The release for the special, Kimmel's 11th time following the Academy Awards telecast, might have even more time for Affleck's BFF and Kimmel's long-standing rival "Oscar loser Matt Damon, time permitting."

Jimmy Kimmel Live! will air live on ABC immediately following the late local news in the ET and CT time zones and at 10 p.m. on the West Coast.
