Unlike the extraterrestrial Superman, Captain Marvel is magical, going back to old folklore and mythos of classic times, Greek mythology. The 3,000 year-old wizard Shazam turned young Billy Batson into Captain Marvel with the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.
never read captain marvel any good
Yeah, he's a pretty cool character. The problem is that a lot of times his titles are just directed at kids.
Seriously now? Well, there's the part where you changed your argument from saying you had reason to believe that Hamm wouldn't be good as Batman to saying there's no reason to think he would be bad or good at playing Batman. Then you tried to tout that as some great argument by referring to both our points as moot even though Hamm has two major factors going for him to play the role where-as you couldn't actually come up with anything concrete.
I only said there's no proof because (I forget who) was asking that as a gotcha question and I admitted that unless we see him in the role we can't know for sure, I still maintain that he wouldn't be good at the role. I can say that and admit that there's no way to know for sure. I'm sure you've fan casted before, you never know for sure but you have people you think would be good and people you think would be bad. I think he would be bad. But one of your major factors is that he looks like Batman... but there are probably over a hundred actors (just in hollywood) who look the part, and I'm sure several of those are good actors... that doesn't mean each one of them is perfect for the role.
So summary: Hamm is a good actor, he fits the very basic outline physically, we have no 100% proof he'd be a good or bad choice... but I feel he'd be a bad choice because when I watch him in stuff I don't see anything that screams Batman to me.
