Social media is buzzing with the news that Ben Affleck is leaving the Batman franchise.
According to The New York Post Affleck’s departure comes on the heels of Henry Cavill not returning to play Superman. So, now what?!
There are rumors that Michael B. Jordan may land the role of Superman, but who is throwing out the interest of sporting the bat suit?
Former Mad Men star, Jon Hamm says “if the scripts good” he’d be interested! He recently sat down with In Depth host, Graham Bensinger and spoke of his love of the comics as a kid and that playing the superhero has crossed his mind.
Fans of the actor aren’t too surprised by this news. In fact, the die hards had him pegged for the role YEARS ago. His Mad Men role of Don Draper does remind me of Bruce Wayne, just a little.
But, don’t get too excited just yet – Hamm says he hasn’t actually spoken to anyone important about the role itself.
“I have never had a conversation with anybody about it, literally. And I’ve sat in the room with all these guys. I have never been offered anything. 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.”
