Did the Mad Man actor ever meet with Marvel Studios to discuss potentially playing their Sorcerer Supreme? Based on what what Jon Hamm is telling Digital Spy, he most certainly did not. Check it out!

"The funny thing about the internet is you can have rumors go on about possible jobs, and possible things that you have no idea," Jon Hamm told Digital Spy when they asked about rumors that he was in contention to play Stephen Strange. "Maybe, I don't know. It's funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but maybe they've been talking to someone at Marvel. I certainly wasn't approached about it, but I do like Dr. Strange. He's a cool character."

For the record, Jon Hamm's name popped up for Doctor Strange only once and it was from an unreliable source
 back in January. There have since been others linked to the Scott Derrickson-directed project, but as of July, Marvel is currently in hot pursuit of three-time Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix, who reportedly is "strongly" considering the offer. What do you think?

I'd be cool with it if Jon Hamm was cast as Doctor Strange.
0megaDaGod - 8/22/2014, 6:00 AM
Well that kinda sucks. Hopefully he becomes Wonder Man instead
NovaCorpsFan - 8/22/2014, 6:01 AM
Jon Hamm's a helluvan actor.
yossarian - 8/22/2014, 6:05 AM
If he didn't meet with Marvel he could have just met with my boss for me. That's the least he could do for me in exchange for me having never seen him in anything.
TelaVizion - 8/22/2014, 6:06 AM
You should definitely check out Mad Men series, Yoss
Maven - 8/22/2014, 6:13 AM
Lol it seems like the Hamm rumor was thrown out there to stop the Depp talk. It was literally the day after Depp was rumored.
DrunkenNukem - 8/22/2014, 6:19 AM
He is open to the possibility, which is good...so it could happen

He is one of my favorite actors...dude owns on the screen...yeah i love Mad Men tv show
MrBlackjack - 8/22/2014, 6:20 AM
Hamm usually pulls the "I'm too old for superheroes" card in situations like this, so at least we got something different this time.
Bekss - 8/22/2014, 6:20 AM
I still remember when Phoenix was in final talks to play Luthor.

These [frick]ing rumors come out from nowhere
Pasto - 8/22/2014, 6:25 AM
He's Paul Rudding us.
MrBlackjack - 8/22/2014, 6:27 AM
I remember when L.R. came out and said Depp was a lock for Strange, then THR debunked that rumor and what felt like just hours after THR's statement Hamm became the next "lock" for Strange.
StarYeezus - 8/22/2014, 6:28 AM
The Strange we deserve:

Bekss - 8/22/2014, 6:30 AM
For every Paul Rudd not playing Antman or Momoa not playing Aquaman there is 10 Joaquín Phoenix playing Lex Luthor.
BlanketMan - 8/22/2014, 6:32 AM
I guess AICN fired "Billy The Kid" for more than just his always-negative reviews. His scoops apparently aren't worth a damn, either.
LordOfTheZegaRealm - 8/22/2014, 6:33 AM
He looks the part, but I don't know anything about acting ability. Is he a good actor?
SuperCat - 8/22/2014, 6:38 AM
Don''t want him for the part anyway.

Jollem - 8/22/2014, 6:38 AM
i was hoping the justin theroux rumor was true

InfiniteMonkey - 8/22/2014, 6:40 AM
Jon Hamm should play Bullseye for the Daredevil Series.

yossarian - 8/22/2014, 6:42 AM
@TelaVizion - I'll try. The GF mentioned it before, but I try to only do things she doesn't want to do.
batmanvsuperman - 8/22/2014, 6:43 AM
^^^ hes okay just choose someone good sure they will
gambgel - 8/22/2014, 6:44 AM
Jon definetly has the look. And its about time he plays a superhero, so one studio better take advantage of him, being the lead in Mad Men
BillWonka - 8/22/2014, 6:46 AM
Andy Serkis for Dr. Strange!
NeoBaggins - 8/22/2014, 6:46 AM
Jon Hamm's mug is all wrong for the role.
DrRockit13 - 8/22/2014, 6:49 AM
Pedro Pascal! The Red Viper for Strange!
0megaDaGod - 8/22/2014, 6:51 AM
LMAO @ SuperCat

CaptShipwreck - 8/22/2014, 6:56 AM
Pedro ftw
MexicanSuperman - 8/22/2014, 6:56 AM
I dought he will ever do a cbm, unless it is one-off movie. I would love to see 1950s Superman movie with him as the lead or a 1930s Batman noir movie with him as the lead.
CaptShipwreck - 8/22/2014, 6:58 AM
Justin Theroux also would be a very very acceptable choice
MexicanSuperman - 8/22/2014, 6:59 AM
@0megaDaGod, wtf is that real?

0megaDaGod - 8/22/2014, 7:02 AM
@MexicanSupes

LOL, I'm assuming it's from a movie. Otherwise I should'nt be laughing at it
darklighter1 - 8/22/2014, 7:04 AM
I can without a doubt say that Joaquin Phoenix is strange. No matter what he chooses to do he will always be....strange.
EarOne - 8/22/2014, 7:09 AM
in that pic, Joaquin sure looks the part, but he'd be like Edward Norton, or Mickey Rourke, if he joins MCU...NOT a "team playah".

Jon Hamm, on the other hand...from what i've been hearing he's quite the loyal and nice guy..he COULD be the perfect Marvel man for Doc Strange.
SuperHamm - 8/22/2014, 7:10 AM
Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be cool to me. I know...age but Dr. Strange is a Doctor not a young skinny Jared Leto "rock star".
MexicanSuperman - 8/22/2014, 7:11 AM
@0megaDaGod, haha probably. I've seen many videos where fall like that by accident and my like dang that sucks and I hope they are ok but I still laugh and then I knock on wood.

Nomis - 8/22/2014, 7:13 AM
Hamm is Awesome, but he Should NOT be Doc Strange.
0megaDaGod - 8/22/2014, 7:17 AM
If they ever make a Kingdom Come movie (which they could definitely do while keeping their own continuity separate), Hamm would be perfect as an older Superman
JorL5150 - 8/22/2014, 7:17 AM
Ill take it!!

Actually a lot of good names have even bandied about
blackandyellow - 8/22/2014, 7:17 AM
Daniel Day-Lewis would never do a superhero movie. It's just not his style.
