A talented DC fan just released a piece of art in which Jon Hamm becomes Kingdom Come‘s Superman.
Back when Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder were still in the midst of casting Superman in Man of Steel, fans online were campaigning for a number of actors to get the role. Some choices skewed older, some younger. One of the most prominently discussed choices was actor Jon Hamm, who fans recognized as being a great candidate for an older Superman.
Although the casting never happened and Henry Cavill won the job instead, fans who have wanted to see Jon Hamm don the iconic Superman costume have gotten their wish, in a way. The Mad Men star may not be playing the DC hero anytime soon but a new piece of fan art has popped up on Instagram from artist Skull101ify that portrays the actor as Superman. Not just any Superman though, the art puts Jon Hamm in the role of Superman as he appeared in the iconic comic book Kingdom Come. Check out the incredible art in the post below.
Kingdom Come is a mini-series that ran for four issues in 1996. The story, which was part of DC’s Elseworld’s label, was written by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. The book was also drawn by Ross, who has lent his unique art style to a number of iconic Marvel and DC books.
