During a recent press junket for The Lone Ranger, Armie Hammer was quizzed on his visit to the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and as to whether he’ll be involved in Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man adaptation. Though he gave nothing away he certainly responded strangely to some questions. Check out what he had to say below.

So, you and Edgar Wright visited the Captain America 2 set…
Me and Edgar? Who’s Edgar? The actor?

The director. Edgar Wright.
Edgar Wright?

Is this an act? If this is an act, you’re convincing.
No, it’s not an act. Who’s Edgar Wright?

The supposed director of Ant-Man.
Of what?

Ant-Man.
Ant-Man? Oh! Wait! You think you know something! No, there’s nothing! What do you know? What’s the rumor?

That you were spotted on the Captain America 2 set with Edgar Wright.
No, there’s nothing.

Really?
Yeah!

Really.
I promise. I promise-promise. Ant-Man?

You’re saying it like you’ve never heard of him before.
No, I know the character Ant-Man—like, the comic book character.

You can’t tell me that this is the first time you’ve heard the rumor that you’re playing Ant-Man.
First in my life. I swear to god, cross my heart, hope to die. Amy! [Turns to his publicist Amy, who says, '"I've never heard of that ever ever. Who's Ant-Man?"] They make him shrink! You’re a news-breaker right there.

Potentially fictitious, apparently.
Well, it works. [Fake enthusiasm] I’m doing Ant-Man, I’m very excited about it. Me and Edgar.

Congrats.
I did go visit the set, though. Not with Edgar.

With who?
Just by myself.

Any reason?
Um… a buddy of mine was working on the movie so I just wanted to go say hi.


With Hammer's involvement in Disney’s The Lone Ranger it’s certainly not impossible that he’ll be taking on another major role for the studio. But what do you think? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

ParisSun - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM

BennyFromTheBronx - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
Please god no!!!!!!!!
xcrementus - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
haha we'll see how enthusiastic about Hammer Disney will be, after Lone Ranger loses them half a billion dollars.
MisterNiceGuy - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
This dude should have been Captain America
MrMartinMarvel - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
That was strange. Anyway he'd actually make a pretty good Ant-Man.
Gambitz - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
Talk about taking things out of context..........
80sFace - 6/25/2013, 6:34 AM
Cap: TWS is the biggest tie in to the Avengers 2. Avengers 2 is going (more) cosmic. Armie = Captain Marvel. There will be a "Captain," "Captain" joke.
Happy11 - 6/25/2013, 6:35 AM
Maybe there is nothing in it. I'll wait until SDCC I think marvel will have some major announcements.
DiLusso - 6/25/2013, 6:35 AM
@parissun
who da sucka? punk
Greengo - 6/25/2013, 6:35 AM
That would be awesome, but I don't see anything here.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 6/25/2013, 6:36 AM
Yeah right.
BennyFromTheBronx - 6/25/2013, 6:37 AM
Ever since I watched mirror mirror I lost all respect for myself and Navy Pliers.
ParisSun - 6/25/2013, 6:41 AM
First to say first suckas!


Anyway, funny to see a 6'5" guy playing a character called Ant-man. I like it. I do wonder if he will be given the Giant-man ability as well. Should be an interesting film. But it would be cool if they introduced Hank and Janet Pym in CA:WS as a cameo.
PsychoManiacJacky - 6/25/2013, 6:42 AM
Armie Hammer, LOL. Just remember folks this is the very same guy you are talking about that you want to play a hero...

Godzillafart - 6/25/2013, 6:42 AM
Wow! I have no idea if I like Hammer as an actor, but I [frick]ing love this guy in an interview.
Grievo - 6/25/2013, 6:42 AM
This seems like the opposite of a news article. "Guy never rumored to Antman, are you Antman?" "No, genuinely no." "I'll take that as a maybe!"

Godzillafart - 6/25/2013, 6:44 AM
@FullMetalJacky: Well, his IS an actor. The ability to play different roles is kinda the point. I mean, Bale was in American Psycho and then played Batman....wait.....bad example. Bale was a shitty Batman.
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:45 AM
Alphaman06 - 6/25/2013, 6:47 AM
Say it aint so... Armie going to Marvel :-(.... I wanted him to be the next Batman... Well damn DC's lost
Mysterion - 6/25/2013, 6:47 AM
Is it just me or did Hammer come off as a douche with his responses?
PsychoManiacJacky - 6/25/2013, 6:48 AM
and the fact Armie Hammer looks like the biggest douchebag ever. Simon Pegg should be Ant Man! Are you people blind?



Pegg and Wright back again for a Marvel superhero movie! It would already be a match made in movie history.
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:48 AM
Am I the only one supporting this??? XD
MrMartinMarvel - 6/25/2013, 6:48 AM
@Mysterion Just slightly.
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:49 AM
@FullMetalJacky
No... He sounds to British... Rocket Raccoon.
rocky - 6/25/2013, 6:50 AM
Armie Hammer for Black Panther
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:51 AM
Simple... Get Thor some big ass shoes...
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:52 AM
@McGee
Honey I shrunk the kids...
ndwwrestler2 - 6/25/2013, 6:52 AM
He's not a bad actor. But Ant-Man? No. Captain Marvel? Maybe.
InfiniteMonkey - 6/25/2013, 6:53 AM
He was banging his publicist on the lot of Captain America.
Why is it so hard to believe? Pffft.
PsychoManiacJacky - 6/25/2013, 6:53 AM
What the heck do you mean he sounds too British so now you want to discriminate a great actor just by their accent? So what is the problem with having a British Ant Man we already have a bunch of American heroes being portrayed on the screen.

CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:53 AM
Ultron should cameo!
AllHailMegatron - 6/25/2013, 6:53 AM
I thought they were gonna use somebody older like Rob Lowe. Maybe Hammer will play Scott Lang and an older actor can portray Henry Pym.
CoulsonLives - 6/25/2013, 6:55 AM
@FullMetalJacky
He sounds funnier as Rocket... It fits him well to be honest! I don't really see him as a Hank Pym type...
SpideyQuad - 6/25/2013, 6:55 AM
ParisSun, more like, "Lag Suckas"
Godzillafart - 6/25/2013, 6:56 AM
Hammer's baby fat face makes him wrong for batman. Never seen the guy act though. I love the idea of Pegg in this role.
