Almost a Batman, always a Batman. That seems to be the case with Armie Hammer. He famously was once almost Batman in George Miller’s Justice League film around a decade ago, and since then, he’s been at the top of every fan list for the Caped Crusader ever. More recently, he was rumored to be in final negotiations for Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which was quickly refuted.
But, of course, these questions continue to be asked. At the end of the day, it’s hard to trust a word coming out of anyone’s mouth. Remember Joaquin Phoenix playing dumb several months back, pretty much pretending like he’d never even heard of the character Joker before? So, it really is difficult to take any statement at face value. But when asked about this rumor by Jimmy Fallon, Hammer said:
“Rumors are all well and good, but none of the people who start rumors are actually people that can get you jobs. So, it’s always like, ‘Are you going to play Batman?’ And I’m like, ‘Well, you just asked me, but guess who hasn’t? Warner Brothers!”
When further if anyone had talked to him about it, Hammer responded with a playful, “No, dammit!” He was then asked if he would ever consider it, and he answered with a resounding “Yeah! Who wouldn’t want to be Batman? I think every guy in this audience would want to be Batman!”
He’s got a point. I’d be Batman. Sign me up, Warner Bros. I’ll work for the low price of $100,000. I’m a real get.
