Josh Gad has shared his thoughts on Jon Hamm’s recent comments about wanting to play Batman.
Gad has been campaigning for the role of The Penguin for sometime and Hamm has always been a fan-favorite casting choice for the caped crusader. It has been reported for more than a year that Ben Affleck will no longer don the cape and cowl and Matt Reeves’ standalone film will feature a new actor. There have also been rumors that Reeves’ film will follow a younger Batman taking on The Penguin. Hamm revealed earlier this week that he would be up for the role if the story was there but confessed he has never talked to anyone about it. Gad shared a gif via Twitter of Danny Devito’s Penguin from Batman Returns in response to Hamm’s comments, which you can see below:
