Jon Hamm is just getting started on Fargo, but there may be spandex in his future.
Asked recently by Screen Rant about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the onetime Mad Men star replied, “Those decisions get made at such a high level at this point, definitely above my pay grade. I would love to. I’ve been a fan of Marvel Comics and comics in general since I was probably single digits. I think there are tons of stories that I’m familiar with, at least, that are still out there to be told.”
Hamm specifically called out The X-Men and The Fantastic Four as properties that still have a lot of tread on their tires. In terms of characters, he namechecked F4 villain Doctor Doom.
“Hopefully, whatever their plans are, they include me. But if not,” he continued, “I know that they have a pretty deep bench of folks that are ready to be a part of those stories.”
Hamm and producer Shawn Ryan are teaming on a live-action television series adaptation of the podcast American Hostage, with Hamm set to reprise his role from the audio series.
The actor will also star in and exec produce the animated detective story Grimsburg for Fox.
