There have been been rumours and speculation about Ben Affleck stepping down as Batman for a long time now — and with the recent reports that Henry Cavill may also be on his way out as Superman, they’ve been given a fresh lease of life.

The question is, who would replace him?

Well, there would probably be no shortage of actors lining up — and it sounds like Jon Hamm is keen to place himself towards the front of the queue.

“It depends on the script, what the story is,” Hamm recently told Graham Bensinger during an In Depth interview, per the Hollywood Reporter. “I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I’ve 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’re done well.”

“I’d probably fit the suit.”

Hamm went on to say that he’s heard rumours of fans calling for him to play Batman since the early days of Mad Men — but so far it’s not something he’s ever discussed with anyone.

“I have never been offered anything,” he said. “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.” 

So would Hamm be interested if someone were to approach him about the role?

“I’d probably fit the suit,” he said. “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?” 

Why not, indeed.
