While at the premiere of Jon Hamm’s latest film, Bad Times at the El Royale, Entertainment Tonight caught up with the 47-year-old actor on the possibility of suiting up as the next Dark Knight of Gotham.
“My God, yeah, it’s fun. That’s a part of the culture we live in, and we’re making those movies more and more, but they’re also making more creatively and more originally. And sure, it’s always an exciting thing to have your name in the list so that’s great.”
Hamm says that he is all for the chance to play Bruce Wayne if Warner Brothers give him a call. He has reiterated that he has been a fan of comic books since he was a kid.
“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.”
This is also not the first time that Hamm has heard the rumors of being in the running for the Caped crusader.
“I’ve heard rumors about that since season one of Mad Men. I’ve never had a conversation with anybody about it. Literally. And I sat in rooms with all these guys. Never been offered anything. I think the internet wants what it wants.”
It remains to be seen whether Ben Affleck, who is the current Batman, will return or not in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. If Affleck decides to move on, it would not only open the door for Hamm but also allows other qualified candidates to throw their names in the hat to play the titular superhero.
