From Mad Man To Superman – Is Jon Hamm To Play Mark Millar’s Superior?

Mark Millar says that he’s been fielding calls from interested parties looking to turn his comic series Superior into a movie. Today, he says, he’s heard from a director and a producer and he’ll be speaking to them both again tomorrow, along with two more folk – he doesn’t give their job titles, however.

Of his first two stage-door darlings he says:

One of them I absolutely love and this is definitely in his comfort zone. The other was a curve-ball, a producer who has worked on lots of big family movies with the director he’s proposing, but strangely has never done a superhero flick before.

Can you fit those descriptions to names?

Millar closes out his post with some his typical, brilliantly Barnumesque business:

But get this: Both guys had casting ideas already and suggested the same dude: Mister Jon Hamm from Mad Men, whom I absolutely love. This is by no means guaranteed casting, but interesting that they both suggested the same guy. Will keep you posted as events happen, but I think this could be an interesting week.

“This is by no means guaranteed casting”.You don’t say. But I suppose that Jon Hamm makes for a very clickable headline… [nonchalant whistle, walks away]
