JON HAMM Pursuing BATMAN Role

Matt Reeves Ben Affleck The Batman

Batman is the Ennis Del Mar to Ben Affleck's Jack Twist.

DC fans might think that Ben Affleck's rendition of Batman is the most comic book accurate version of the Dark Knight, but it seems like Mad Men star Jon Hamm doesn't share the same sentiment at all. Some have pointed to Jake Gyllenhaal as the potential follow-up Batman, but according to Radar Online, there is one actor who is trying his darndest to get the gig: Jon Hamm.

"Jon's gunning hard for the role", Radar's unnamed source said.

It's said Jon Hamm is friends with Ben Affleck and realizes that Affleck has faced some criticism, but according to the site, Jon Hamm feels he is the better Batman.

The dossier is a collection of negative research on Trump that alleges corrupt ties to the Russian government. He interviewed Clinton and her aides about the server, which contained classified material.

Jon Hamm is 46-years-old now and Ben Affleck is 45, so they're pretty much the exact same age. Said the source, "Of course, Ben's not officially out of the role yet. but the writing's on the wall, and Jon's desperate for the gig, friend or not".

In a detailed account of a shakeup at Warner Bros. following "Justice League's" lower-than-expected box office grosses, Variety reported Thursday that "The Batman" director Matt Reeves plans to recast the title role.

"There's a chance to do an nearly noir driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven in a very very powerful way, that will hopefully connect you to what's going on inside of his head and inside of his heart". Jake Gyllenhaal has also been chasing the role, and Matt has definitely been considering him. Affleck's script was thrown out and, at this point, it's totally unclear what direction Reeves is taking the movie.
