Jon Hamm is not afraid of speculation that he wants to take on a certain super-role.

The actor was questioned about wanting to portray Batman during an appearance on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” that was released Wednesday.

“I know you said before that you’re not interested in the superhero movies, but what is this I hear that there are at least rumors that you are interested in Batman?” Bensinger asked.

Hamm, 47, was quick to reply.

“I have rumors about that since probably – since the season of ‘Mad men,’ ” he said. “I’ve never – I’ve never had a conversation with someone about it. Literally. And I sat in the room with all the boys.”

Hamm added, “Never offered something. I think the internet wants what it wants. No control over the internet.”

The star said that it “depends” if he would enjoy the role, with reference to the script and “what the story is.”


“I’m a huge comic book fan – always have been,” he continued. “I’ve been reading comic books since I was, you know, 9 or younger. And I’m pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I – I love the genre, and I like ’em when they’re done well.”

Hamm had praise for some of the projects, the calls from both the “Black Panther” and the TV show “Legion”, which was broadcast on FX since 2017, “great.”

“So there is 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, that’s for sure.”


Hamm continued, “I would probably be the fit of the suit, you know? I have to – I would have to work, and that I don’t love.”

The “Baby Driver,” an actor does not write out of the project, however.

“I am sure that there is an interesting version of that creature in there,” Hamm said. “And if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it, why not? But I mean, you know, a lot of people have to sign off on that, of course, not only of the internet.”
