It's good that he's a young actor. He still has a career ahead of himself. I never liked the idea of casting a forty-year-old Batman in a franchise that is meant to last long. Unless it's Jon Hamm, of course, because Jan Hamm would be the greatest Batman ever. But Patt is a nice choice, anyway.

I think he has the right amount of menace in The Town. I love that scene in the interrogation room.
Outside of that and his chiseled look though, I don't think he's a Batman that Reeves is trying to bring in, especially given his age. Ask again when they are looking toward a Dark Knight Returns kind of story line.
Y’know, everything I’ve seen of Hamm outside of Mad Men suggests... otherwise
Oh, really? Hmm... So if we go by that logic, then, everything we had seen of Downey Jr. before IM (Gothika, Shaggy Dog) also tells a different story than what we're seeing now with him. Or Chris Evans, even a better example. The dude didn't star in one decent movie throughout his career before being cast as Cap. He was never a leading man in anything. However, Hamm played a dual, sleazy businessman with a tragic past in Mad Men, and played it well. And he also looks like an Alex Ross painting of Bruce Wayne. So yeah, excuse me for putting two and two together and thinking, "Oh, wow, this guy could've been a great Batman."
