The Ben Affleck-Matt Damon bromance is being put to the test thanks to Chris Hemsworth.
The "Avengers" and "Thor" star has been trading barbs with Batfleck on social media over which superhero actor is truly Damon's best friend. While there usually wouldn't be any questions about the subject considering the Boston-bred stars' long-standing friendship, Damon has been spending a lot of time with Hemsworth in recent months, especially since "The Martian" star made a cameo in last year's "Thor: Ragnarok."
Of course, gossip publications have noticed the budding new friendship as well, taking things a bit further by insinuating that Hemsworth is replacing Affleck as Damon's BFF. Even though Damon has defended the "Justice League" actor's odd back tattoo, that didn't stop Affleck from taking to Twitter over the weekend to declare that Hemsworth can have Damon if he wants.

"Hey @chrishemsworth, you can have him! I'm Team @JimmyKimmel anyways," Affleck tweeted, referencing Damon's faux feud with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

Hemsworth responded with the obligatory "Good Will Hunting" joke and said that Damon is probably just a bigger fan of Marvel movies than DC. The "Thor" star also tagged Kimmel in his tweet, so you know the comic had to weigh in on the bromance situation too.
Hemsworth wasn't happy with Kimmel siding with Batfleck, so he threatened to pull out of his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this week during all the "Avengers: Infinity War" promotional festivities. Luke Hemsworth tried to slide into the spot, but the older Hemsworth brother told him that Kimmel would only break his heart.
Fans don't need to worry too much, though, as it sounds like the "Thor" actor is changing his tune and will show up this week.
To be honest, I'm happy for both of us. https://t.co/7UWv16AtPP— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 23, 2018
