A couple of days ago we reported on the rumor that Warner Bros. was considering Jon Hamm for the role of Superman in their upcoming reboot, The Man of Steel. Sadly, it seems it was too good to be true. Hamm appeared this morning on Live with Regis and Kelly while promoting The Town and denied the news. The actor said, “It’s sort of news to me.” He continued, “If that’s something that the powers that be are thinking about, I hope they get in touch with me. We can maybe discuss it.” I think I speak for most of the internet when I say that I hope the powers that be get in touch with him too.
With production set to start on The Man of Steel sometime next year, I’m sure we will know who WB wants to wear the iconic costume in the next few months. In the meantime, we can only keep wishing that Hamm’s name is on some executive’s list as a possible choice. You can watch the clip of Hamm addressing the rumors after the jump.
