The Batman: Should Jon Hamm Really Replace Ben Affleck?

Jon Hamm Wants to Play Batman Jon Hamm would like to play Batman, thanks

Talking on web series In Depth With Graham Bensinger (as found by The Hollywood Reporter), Hamm covers the fact that he's been one of the tipped choices online since his Mad Men days. But as with any project, he wouldn't want to sign up as the character unless he finds the script up to snuff.

In a recent interview with Graham Bensinger, Hamm expressed his interest in playing the iconic superhero.

He's a long-time comic book fan. I have read comic books since I was nine or younger.

'And I'm pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them'. "And I like the genre, and I like when they are done well".

Hamm is aware that some fans have wanted to see him in the role for years. "I've never had a conversation with anybody about it".

Still, he's into it.

When asked whether he could see himself taking on the role of the Caped Crusader, Hamm said, "I'd probably fit the suit".

"I have had rumors about that since probably season one of Mad Men. I'm sure there's an interesting version of [Batman] being out there, and if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it, why not?" Literally. And I've sat in the rooms with all these guys. I have never been offered anything. Furthermore, there's an aspect as to the role that Hamm would not look forward to. "I think the internet wants what it wants" stated Hamm while also claiming no executives have ever approached him for the role. He loves the genre (he particularly loved Black Panther), thinks he'd fit the suit (though he's not insane about all the physical training the role would presumably require), and says - should Warner Bros. come knocking - "Why not?" For now, it's still unclear what Matt Reeves and the studio are going to do with The Batman, though it has been rumored that they're looking for a younger actor to take play the Dark Knight.
