Armie Hammer as Batman? That Rumor May Not Be True After All!

Armie Hammer as Batman? That Rumor May Not Be True After All!

A rumor spread this week that Armie Hammer was rumored to be in talks to star as Batman in the upcoming standalone film The Batman, taking over the role from Ben Affleck.

Armie himself apparently just told Yahoo UK, “No one who can actually give me the job has asked me if I’m interested. I don’t even know if they’re done – I think they’re still working on a script. I don’t think that they’re close to production but I can conclusively tell you that no one has checked my availability, which is a bummer.”

In addition, two entertainment writers from other mags are now saying that rumor isn’t true.

“I’m not in the business of debunking bunk but considering everyone got in a tizzy over this…there is no truth to the below. Being told there haven’t even been any actor meetings for THE BATMAN. (But that doesn’t mean Reeves and WB don’t have ideas of who they would like),” THR writer Borys Kit tweeted.

Variety writer Justin Kroll also added, “Yeah, that BATMAN rumor is false. That said, potential for this week to be very interesting on a number fronts. Sleep tight.”

If you don’t know, we asked our readers who they wanted to see play Batman and the overwhelming majority voted for Outlander‘s Sam Heughan.
