Jon Hamm as Batman... I don't hate the idea...

This may be old news but it's new to me.

 So, if Affleck can't go as the Dark Knight..
 Would the rising support for Don Draper donning the cowl be a good thing or bad?

Hamm would've been great for Batman 10 years ago. Now...

I mean, he can still pull it off (he looks the part and is an amazing actor), but we're starting to get into old man DKR  territory here, especially when you think of long term franchise needs.

He’s got a perfect look and 5-8 years ago would’ve been great

Has he ever bulked up?

I'm a fan of a middle aged Batman fighting crime.

I could get behind him in the short run, but there probably wouldn't be much mileage

Yeah, it’s too bad because I think he’d have made a great Bruce Wayne.

Since they were already going for an older Batman, I got the impression they wanted to have Batman eventually retire or something to make way for Nightwing.  I mean, even in Justice League, Batman was talking about how old he was.  I think he mentioned doing the superhero gig for 15 years or something.

They haven't even established a Batman franchise and they're already talking about retiring him for a sidekick that the vast majority of movie goers have never heard of. It's aggravating.

It's to be expected at this point.
