Jon Hamm Wants to Play Batman in the DCEU

With Cavill on the outs, will Ben Affleck follow his lead and quit playing Batman?

Jon Hamm would be interested in taking on the role of Batman, but under certain conditions.

In an interview for In Depth with Graham Bensinger (11:30pm Sunday on FOX2), Jon Hamm says he's never discussed the role of Batman with anyone in a position to make it happen, but sounded open to it. As he admits, he's been a huge comic book fan since he was a kid and thoroughly enjoyed both Marvel Studios' Black Panther and FX's Legion. I've ready comic books since I was nine or younger. "And I'm pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them", Hamm continued, adding that he likes the genre, especially when the movies are "done well". And if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it: "why not?"

"I have never been offered anything", he said.

Still, he's into it.

Although Hamm hasn't had any official conversations about playing Batman, he said, "I'd probably fit the suit. But, I mean, a lot of people have to sign off on that, obviously not just the Internet".

"I am sure there's an interesting version of that being out there", said Hamm. And I've sat in the room with all these guys.

The Gone Girl star "isn't expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves" forthcoming Batman stand-alone film' according to the publication. Never been offered anything.

While Page Six reported Affleck would be giving up his keys to the Batmobile, there have been murmurs of his exit for quite some time. But since we're still not sure if Ben Affleck, who's donned the mask for three films is returning to the role or not (despite having a fan in longtime bud Kevin Smith), surely someone with seven seasons of playing dapper and messed-up wouldn't be a bad replacement.

With so much public turmoil, actors are beginning to weigh in on the future of these iconic characters, making comments that just hint at interest, but not fully throwing their hats into the ring.

But one major road block to getting the job may have been removed with reports that a "shake-up" at Warner Bros might see more than one superhero role recast.
