You can cross Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) off your potential Batman list for the upcoming Superman/Batman movie announced by Warner Bros. a couple of weeks ago. Even though he had originally been on board to play Batman for George Miller‘s 2007 Justice League movie, which quickly fell off the Hollywood map, Hammer now says he has no interest in the role, or any other superhero movie for that matter. In an interview with Metro he said:
I’m not actually a big fan of superhero films, If you have a guy who is supposed to be invulnerable, then what’s the point?
He went on to talk about working with Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and jokingly worried what people might say if the two of them then starred in another superhero movie so soon after.
I think if Henry and I did that film and then a superhero film straight after, people might start to wonder about us…
Well, who does that leave on your list to play the Caped Crusader? Check out NerdBastards list and see who else might fit the role.
