Armie Hammer Probably Won't Be Batman, But We'll Report It Anyways

After putting on the bat-suit for the 2007 Justice League movie before it fell apart, Armie Hammer's name is starting to come up for Batman again.


October 9, 2012

  It seems Justice League casting rumors are all the rage recently, even though casting hasn't actually started yet.  First Gina Carano was a possible Wonder Woman and now Armie Hammer's name is making the rounds as a possible Batman in a future Justice League movie.

   Armie Hammer was supposed to play Batman in an attempt to make Justice League movie in 2007, but a variety of issues caused the project to collapse and he moved on to other projects.  You may be seeing images of him popping up everywhere now with a different mask on, that of the Lone Ranger.  Now that Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy has wrapped up, speculation is beginning on who will be the next Batman and if it will even be the same actor in the role for a Justice League movie.

   All of the news floating around the net about this today seems to track back to one source-  Unfortunately, no one has the slightest idea who their source is and even gossip loving site Bleeding Cool is thumbing their nose at this rumor:

Hearing, from a very good source, today that Hammer, who is now a hot commodity after such flicks as “The Social Network” and “Mirror Mirror”, not to mention his upcoming lead role in “The Lone Ranger”, is ”back on WB’s radar” for the part of Batman. Not for a solo flick, but for the ensemble “Justice League” movie [again].

The studio need a new guy to guard the cave now that Christian Bale has hung up the cowl. And with plans to reintroduce a younger take on the character in the upcoming “Justice League” movie, a draft of which has been completed by Will Beale, the studio has Hammer atop of their list of potentials. It’s really, when you think about it, a no-brainer. Thus, I wasn’t much surprised when informed this morning that he’s in with a good chance to play the part in the superhero tag-team movie.

   After seeing the news  popping up all over the interwebs, we were feeling left out and figured why not jump in on the hit-train.  Usually we prefer to wait for something more concrete, like seeing a picture of one actor coincidentally hanging out with another.
