Move over, Ben Affleck and Christian Bale. Jon Hamm is totally down to play the next Batman.
Hamm confided in host Graham Bensinger during his In Depth web series that he’s been a fan of Gotham’s hero since he was a kid and would love to play the iconic role in a film.
The Mad Men alum explained, “It depends on the script; what the story is. I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I’ve read comic books since I was 9 or younger.”
But although he considers himself a Bruce Wayne aficionado, there is one major aspect of the role that doesn’t strike his fancy: “I’d have to work out a lot, which I don’t love. But, I am sure there’s 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?” he said.
Hamm went on to clarify that he’s “never had a conversation with anybody about it, literally,” but that he thinks “the internet wants what it wants,” and in this case that’s Hamm as Batman.
