Jon Hamm ‘Gunning’ To Replace Ben Affleck In DC Extended Universe

Is Ben Affleck done playing the Caped Crusader? His casting as the Dark Knight in 2016’s Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice was met by intense fan backlash and after two further appearances, there’s speculation the actor’s days as part of the DC Extended Universe are over. Despite critical praise for his portrayal, Affleck has never quite settled into the role as Gotham’s most famous resident. Coupled with the disappointing critical and box office reaction to last year’s Justice League, the rumors that he won’t return for the next DC installment are at fever pitch.

Who Could Replace Him?

There have been many suggestions for a possible replacement including Mad Men’s Jon Hamm. Hamm has been good friends with Affleck since working with him on 2010’s The Town, but apparently, that hasn’t stopped him “gunning” for Affleck’s role.

A source allegedly told RadarOnline: “Of course, Ben’s not officially out of the role yet, but the writing’s on the wall, and Jon’s desperate for the gig — friend or not.” Jon might have a fight for the role, though.

A Fight For Batman

New Zealander star Karl Urban, who starred in 2017’s Thor: Rangarok, recently responded to fan suggestion that he could be the next Batman. “I don’t know, I haven’t really contemplated that [taking on the role of Batman],” he told JoBlo.

“I thought Christian Bale was a fantastic Batman, and obviously with such talent like Heath Ledger that was the perfect comic book movie right there. So, I don’t know, I’m open to any and all opportunities.” Other names in the ring include Jake Gyllenhaal and a return for Christian Bale.

The Dark Knight’s Future

Warner Bros. and Affleck will have to make a decision about his future soon. Production on the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman has been confirmed to begin next year.

Affleck quit as director of the project last year but is still attached as a screenwriter and producer on IMDb. Before the solo Batman movie, Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego are slated to appear in the next DCEU movie, Flashpoint, which will start shooting later this year.
