Jon Hamm might fly as Superman
HollywoodNews.com: Dapper leading man Jon Hamm might be putting on the red and blue superhero tights.
Translation: The “Mad Men” star is in serious contention to play Superman in Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the feature comic book franchise.
Digital Spy uncovered the article at the website ThinkMcFlyThink.
The star of 2006’s “Superman Returns,” Brandon Routh, will not reprise his role as the Man of Steel. Routh continues to enjoy film work, most recently in “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.”
Hamm previously told MTV earlier this year he had concerns about the role: “It’s a tricky road to go down with some of those heroes, because they’re not flawed…Superman is Superman – he’s invincible, so where’s the drama?”
“Batman Begins” scribe David Goyer has penned the script for the untitled Superman project, due out at the multiplex in December 2012.
