Jon Hamm isn’t shying away from speculation that he wants to take on a certain super-size role. The actor was asked about wanting to portray Batman during an appearance on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” that was released Wednesday. “So I know you said before you aren’t interested in superhero movies, but what’s this I hear that there are at least rumors that you’re interested in Batman?” Bensinger asked. “I’ve had rumors about that since probably — since Season 1 of ‘Mad Men,'” Hamm said. “I’ve never — I’ve never had a conversation with anybody about it. Literally. And I’ve sat in the rooms with all these guys.” Hamm added, “Never been offered anything. I think the internet wants what it wants. Can’t control the internet.” The star said it “depends” if he’d enjoy the role, citing the script and “what the story is.” “I’m a huge comic book fan — always have been,” he continued. “I’ve read comic books since I was, you know, 9 or younger. And I’m pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I — I like the genre, and I like ’em when they’re done well.”
