JON HAMM Pursuing BATMAN Role

JON HAMM Pursuing BATMAN Role

Could Jon Hamm be the next Batman? But according to Variety's sources, the director of the upcoming standalone Batman movie - Matt Reeves - "is said to want to cast the role with fresh talent". Hamm and Affleck have been good friends ever since they starred together in Affleck's 2010 movie The Town, and they'd often drink together until Hamm made a decision to sober up two years ago. The two actors grew close when starring alongside one another in the 2010 film The Town, which Affleck directed, and were "drinking buddies" before Hamm began his journey toward sobriety in 2015. According to the source, the friendship is still strong, but that won't stop Hamm from getting what he wants. "This is business for Jon - not personal".

For a while, it's looked like Justice League could be Ben Affleck's final turn as Batman in the current DC movie universe, which means another actor is going to have to replace him at some point for The Batman.

"Jon's gunning hard for the role.They enjoyed working together and have been on good terms ever since".

What Are Analysts Suggestions On Barnes & Noble Education, Inc. (BNED)
The company's shares were given away at $9.78 per share worth to an income of some $63,570 on account of Chakrapani Srijayanth D. Currently, 82.1 million total shares are owned by the public and among those 55.72 million shares have been available to trade.

Reeves hasn't said this himself, it's important to note, but it does tie to the ongoing narrative that Affleck is looking to exit the Batman role in the near future.

And though Affleck isn't officially out of the role yet, the source added "but the writing's on the wall, and Jon's desperate for the gig - friend or not".

Could Don Draper make his way to Gotham City? Only Matt Reeves knows the answer to that question.
