Seems like Jakey and Hamm will have to battle it out for the role.

Ben got his dick caught in the Pervgate wringer?

I never watched Mad Men but I did see Baby Driver and thought was not movie star materialize.

I like Jake but he was terrible in that Netflix animal rights movie. He has made so many BO bombs (that’s what he gets for distancing himself from Brokeback) if did a Batman turkey don’t think he could survive.

Hamm was not

Jake has nothing to lose by doing a superhero movie. He doesn't seem super interested in being an A-lister, so no big deal if the movie flops. And even if a BO bomb has a bad effect on his career, it's not like he'll never work again. He's set for life anyway.

Yeah, Baby Driver was a misstep for Hamm. Mad Men is where it's at. However, I've got a suspicion he has no range. On the other hand, you don't really need range to play the fucking Batman.

Jon Hamm?! Puh-leeze. They are going to go from one older chubby alcoholic to another one.

Jake and Jon both want the role, but neither are box office attractions.

Wasn't Jake's last film "Life"? I'm not sure if it was considered a bomb, but it proved Jake's name on the movie poster doesn't put butts in the seats. ("Life" also had Ryan Reynolds with co-billing; and btw, it's a pretty good movie, despite being formulaic.)

WB/DC should definitely go younger and look for someone who can stay for a 10-year run as Batman. Zack Snyder was in love with over-the-hill Batman. Now that Snyder has been given the boot, start fresh with a 35 year-old Batman Let Whedon develop a "Buffy" aged Batgirl and wait a couple of movies to connect the "Batfamily". Ignore the idea that Robin has been killed by the Joker and Harley.

So, the challenge is to find an under-40, actor, with marquee-value, who wants to sign a multi-picture deal, and ultimately be persona non grata with Marvel / Disney / Fox.

Good luck, Warner Brothers!

What if Marvel were allowed to reboot the Batman franchise? Obviously that wont ever happen, but how much better might it be?
