Jon Hamm would like to play Batman, thanks

Iron-jawed and broad shouldered all-American male Jon Hamm is not opposed to donning the cape and cowl of DC's greatest detective, Batman.

Gad took to Twitter to share a GIF of Danny DeVito playing the Penguin in Batman Returns while teasing that he's "waiting" on Hamm to confirm the role.

As I wrote about last December, it's also been going around Tinsel Town that Hamm was gunning for Affleck's role as Bruce Wayne, and while that's all well and good, there has never been an official expression of interest from the Mad Men star.

The variety of reports about the future of the DC Extended Universe, and the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman, means it's anyone's guess as to what films actually come to fruition and who will star in them.

Ben Affleck may not officially be out yet, but let's be honest - he's had a foot out the door for months.

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. Hamm certainly seems more interested in playing character as long as the story and the context were the right fit.

It's the second time this month that Russian aircraft have been intercepted in Air Defense Identification Zone, Hennessy said. O'Shaughnesy, NORAD commander, said the latest bomber incident highlights the need for continued air defense vigilance.

Jon Hamm's a fan of comic books, but he's still a long way from putting on the Batman costume. I have never had a conversation with anyone about it, literally.

"It depends on the script, what the story is", Hamm said on Wednesday in an interview with Graham Bensinger. I'd have to work out a lot, which I don't love.

When asked whether he could see himself taking on the role of the Caped Crusader, Hamm said, "I'd probably fit the suit". And I've sat in the rooms with all these guys.

On moving on from Mad Men, a range of thoughts from "Do people want to see me doing anything else?"

'But, I am sure there's an interesting version of that being out there'. I think the internet wants what it wants. "I have to - I'd have to work out a lot, which I don't love". "And I - I like the genre, and I like 'em when they're done well". He was quick to add, "A lot of people have to sign off on that....not just the internet".
