Jon Hamm Being Considered for Superman?

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | July 29, 2010 | Comments ()


I don't know if he'll ultimately get the nod for the Superman role (or even if Hamm would want it; he doesn't seem the superhero type). But, I like the idea of a heavy-smoking, hard drinking, womanizing Man of Steel with some fucked up issues with women, to transfer his Don Draper personality on to him. Nolan likes troubled superheroes, and Hamm can do troubled. And unlikable. And cold. I mean, what could be better than an anti-hero Superman? It goes against everything Superman has ever been in the movies (though, I suspect he's had his rough spells in the comics). Plus, can you imagine: a drunken Superman saying to Lois Lane, "Get out of my Fortress of Solitude, you whore?"

Have I offended the Superman purists? Or is this an intriguing possibility?
