Jon Hamm addresses Batman rumors: ‘I’d probably fit the suit’
Jon Hamm isn’t shying away from speculation that he wants to take on a certain super-size role.
“So I know you said before you aren’t interested in superhero movies, but what’s this I hear that there are at least rumors that you’re interested in Batman?” Bensinger asked.
“I’ve had rumors about that since probably — since Season 1 of ‘Mad Men,’” he said. “I’ve never — I’ve never had a conversation with anybody about it. Literally. And I’ve sat in the rooms with all these guys.”
Hamm added, “Never been offered anything. I think the internet wants what it wants. Can’t control the internet.”
“I’m a huge comic book fan — always have been,” he continued. “I’ve read comic books since I was, you know, 9 or younger. And I’m pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I — I like the genre, and I like ’em when they’re done well.”
“So there’s a lot of interesting things out there,” he explained. “But it depends on the story, you know? It all comes down to the story.”
Hamm was asked by Bensinger if he could imagine himself in the role.
“Sure,” he said. “I mean, sure.”
Hamm continued, “I’d probably fit the suit, you know? I have to — I’d have to work out a lot, which I don’t love.”
