  • Ben Affleck now unlikely to play Batman in Matt Reeve's'The Batman movie

Hamm is purportedly jockeying to be the actor to replace his The Town co-star Ben Affleck should he no longer continue in that role. Here's what an unnamed source had to say about the situation. "This is business for Jon - not personal", the insider adds.

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.

Jon Hamm is 46-years-old now and Ben Affleck is 45, so they're pretty much the exact same age.

Are you disappointed or pleased with the exit of Ben Affleck as Batman? Jake Gyllenhaal has also been chasing the role, and Matt has definitely been considering him.

While Variety does not confirm Hamm or Gyllenhaal involvement, it does confirm that Reeves is hunting for a new Batman. He's expected to appear in the standalone The Flash movie.

The most interesting point in Variety's report was some sort of confirmation about the rumours surrounding Ben Affleck's departure from the entire franchise.

Considering how close a friend Hamm, whom many know as the charismatic yet devastatingly troubled Don Draper on the AMC series Mad Men, has been to Affleck over the years, some may find the actor's ambition a bit surprising.

"Things have been going great for Jon since Mad Men wrapped".

Indeed, Jon Hamm has enjoyed success after Mad Men. So, even though this new info from Radar Online should be regarded as rumor for now, it's not hard to imagine Hamm wants to be The Batman.
