Jon Hamm makes the perfect replacement for Ben Affleck in this new image that pits the Mad Men actor in a Batman Rebirth styled take on the Caped Crusader’s DCEU costume design.
Batman actor Ben Affleck reconfirmed his exit from the role on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week and this new image presents Jon Hamm as the perfect replacement for Ben Affleck as he’s nearly indistinguishable from the DECU’s original Dark Knight.
While Jon Hamm has not been officially cast in the role of Batman, he’s a fan favorite to succeed Ben Affleck amongst rumored contenders such as Ansel Elgort, Dylan O’Brien, Logan Lerman, Noah Centineo, Jack O’Connell, Kit Harrington, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Richard Madden, Robert Pattinson, and Armie Hammer.

– Jon Hamm as Batman! – Yesterday I drew Joaquín Phoenix as The Joker, so I felt I needed some Batman FanArt. Here's a quick edit of a Ben Affleck costume test I found and edited it a wee bit putting the face of Jon Hamm and giving it a DC Rebirth kinda style to the batsuit. I hope you're doing well and have a marvellous day full of fun and bliss! May you all walk where the light is! Laugh hard, run fast and be kind! Thanks for stopping by!. – – – – – – – #Batman #edit #Photomanipulation #JonHammBatman #DCcomics #TheDarkKnight #DCrebirth #Instacool #Instapic #NewPic #comicbook #CapedCrusader #JonHamm
What do you think? Would Jon Hamm make the perfect replacement for Ben Affleck as Batman? Let us know who you want to see in the role down in the comments below!
The Batman is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Cyborg, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
Although plot details remain under wraps, Matt Reeves’ project has been long rumored to feature a younger Caped Crusader, even prior to Ben Affleck exiting the role. A rogues gallery of Batman villains are rumored to appear, including The Penguin which could be the film’s main villain. While the film’s inspiration remains unclear, the director himself has confirmed the film will not be based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic directly and will focus on Batman as the World’s Greatest Detective much more than the previous films ever have before.
Following Aquaman, which is now playing, the DCEU continues in April with Shazam! on April 5, 2019, which will be followed by Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
