While speaking to The Radio Times, Mad Men star Jon Hamm revealed that he has been offered multiple parts in superheroes movies and has turned them all down.

Hamm doesn't reveal which roles he has “been in contention” for but went on to explain why he has turned down the roles.

“For me to sign on now to do a superhero movie would mean I would be working until I am fifty as that particular superhero. It’s a lot of work at one thing which is not necessarily the reason I got into the business which is to do many things. If you want to spend all day pressing the same key that… seems an odd choice."

Hamm went on to say that he made “the right choice” in not taking any of the roles but worries about his place in Hollywood without having at least one superhero role on his resume.

“It doesn’t compute to the generation that most of Hollywood cares about, If your last name’s not Hemsworth or you are not in One Direction or you don’t wear a cape and tights for a living, you literally have a hard time making an impression,”
