Cinema Blend: "Last month, the first rumors began that Mad Men's Jon Hamm was up for the role of Superman in the reboot being developed by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. This was weeks before the announcement that Zack Snyder would be directing and the comments about the film focusing on the early days of the character, but it was still brushed off as being ridiculous. Why? Because Hamm would be the oldest person to play the Man of Steel by more than a decade. Now those rumors are beginning to seem a little more realistic."
