"If they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it, why not?"
Jon Hamm has thrown his hat into the ring as a possible replacement for Ben Affleck as Batman in the DC Extended Universe.
The former Mad Men star spoke to US sports reporter Graham Bensinger on Wednesday (September 12), with the conversation quickly shifting from a discussion of Hamm’s athleticism to the possibility of him portraying Batman.
“Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require,” Affleck admitted at the time. His script for The Batman was also scrapped, and it is now heavily rumoured that he will be replaced in the title role – possibly by Hamm.
