Jon Hamm Is Ready To Take Over The Role Of THE BATMAN From Ben Affleck

It's pretty obvious that Ben Affleck's days as The Batman are at an end but would Jon Hamm (Mad Men be willing to don the cape and cowl? During a recent interview, the actor made his interest clear...

Jon Hamm is a name that's been mentioned in regards to Batman for years now and while the majority of fans were happy when Ben Affleck was cast as the Caped Crusader, the support for the Mad Men star to suit up has never actually gone away. Now, the actor has made it clear that he would be more than willing to play the character providing the script is good (and with Matt Reeves writing, it will be).

"It depends on the script, what the story is," Hamm explains in the video below. "I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I have read comic books since I was nine or younger. And I am pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I like the genre, and I like when they are done well."

Adding that he loved Black Panther and is a fan of FX's Legion, Hamm confirmed that he hasn't actually had any conversations with Warner Bros. about taking over but is confident that "I'd probably fit the suit. I'd have to work out a lot, which I don't love. But, I am sure there is an interesting version of that being out there. And if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it: why not?" 
 
"I have had rumors about that since probably season one of Mad Men," he continued. "I have never had a conversation with anyone about it, literally. And I've sat in the room with all these guys. I have never been offered anything. I think the Internet wants what it wants. But, I mean, a lot of people have to sign off on that, obviously not just the Internet." Would you like him to play The Batman?
