Another internet news site has stirred up the Hamm-Superman rumored pairing, claiming the studio behind the superhero reboot is seriously pursuing the Mad Men actor to portray the Man of Steel.
Every since Warner Bros formally announced their vision for the next Superman movie, a vision that includes The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan working behind-the-scenes, the rumored casting of actor Jon Hamm with Clark Kent/Superman has resurfaced every few months. It appears to be one of the most popular casting rumors circulating today, especially amongst comic book fans.
Today, ThinkMcFlyThink released the following statements:
"Sources tell [us] one such actor being "seriously considered" is Mad Men star Jon Hamm.
"...keep in mind no deal is in place and there's no indication Hamm and/or his representation has met with WB, Legendary or the Nolan crew. He's one of several names being thrown around the Burbank offices to headline the new Superman franchise."
The next Superman film (which has yet to receive a formal title) is also rumored to have a theatrical release date of December 2012.
