One of the longest-running "feuds" in entertainment just took a turn, and all it took was Thor to make it happen. For over a decade, Jimmy Kimmel has ended his late night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, by saying he has run out of time for Matt Damon. Now, Ben Affleck has hysterically referenced the long-time gag. The result has been a Twitter exchange between Affleck, Chris Hemsworth, and Jimmy Kimmel that has been entertaining fans over the weekend.

Posting on his official Twitter account, Ben Affleck responded to a tweet from Gossip Cop, which promoted a story with an interesting headline. The story queried as to whether Chris Hemsworth had replaced Affleck as Matt Damon's best friend. Affleck quoted the tweet, jestingly saying Chris Hemsworth could have Damon, citing that he is on Team Jimmy Kimmel, anyway. Affleck tagged Hemsworth and Kimmel's Twitter accounts in his tweet.

In it, Kimmel was able to continue Hemsworth's ability to reference Batman, Thor, and Matt Damon, all in the same tweet.

Chris Hemsworth will be making the press rounds next week to promote Avengers: Infinity War. And this online exchange will undoubtedly be a part of the conversation. One scenario that could play out to incredibly amusing results would be if Jimmy Kimmel got Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Chris Hemsworth to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live together, so they could hash out the "drama."

Find out if it happens. New episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live air weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
