Miles Teller appeared on Late Night Monday night to discuss his role as Mr. Fantastic in the new Fantastic Four.

Teller revealed to Meyers, a comic book enthusiast, that he wasn’t a reader of comic books growing up, but said Fantastic Four was his dad’s favorite.

“You’re his spawn. This is a big deal for him,” Meyers said to the actor.

When Meyers asked if Teller received any perks from his superhero role, Teller recalled waiting in line at an airport one day and being approached by a security guard.

“This security guard comes up and says ‘Follow me.’ Like, ‘Oh my god, what’s in my backpack,’” Teller said.

The security guard took the actor aside and said, “You really think Mr. Fantastic has to wait in line?” and welcomed him to the Marvel universe.

“I heard that guy got fired,” Meyers joked Teller.
