Armie Hammer On BATMAN/SUPERMAN Speculation; "‘I'm Not A Big Fan Of Superhero Films"

With Christian Bale reportedly not returning as the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman, Armie Hammer has been asked - during the UK press tour for The Lone Ranger - whether he would like to take on the role. Hit the jump to read his thoughts on the recent speculation!

While The Lone Ranger may have damaged his credibility to some extent, Armie Hammer is still a fan favourite choice to play Batman in a future movie. Well, with 2015 set to be the year that Zack Snyder pits that hero against Superman in a team-up movie, now seems like the perfect chance for Hammer to nab the role, right? "I’m not actually a big fan of superhero films," he told Metro when asked about the speculation that he will take on the role of the Caped Crusader in Batman/Superman or Justice League. "If you have a guy who is supposed to be invulnerable, then what’s the point? I think if Henry and I did that film and then a superhero film straight after, people might start to wonder about us..." The film he's talking about is of course The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in which he will star opposite Cavill as one of the two leads. For now, fans will have to make do when it comes to seeing the two fighting side-by-side on the big screen.

I don't care if he doesn't want to play Batman, but his views on CBMs are annoying.

I don't think Armie Hammer is in any position to reject movie roles, considering how badly The Lone Ranger damaged his career. Maybe he should reconsider.
REDSTORM - 8/1/2013, 5:58 PM
Good. Superhero movie fans don't like you.
TheWolverine08 - 8/1/2013, 6:00 PM
Lol at him saying "If a guy is invulnerable, what's the point?". Dude obviously doesn't know jack about comics.
SuperDude001 - 8/1/2013, 6:02 PM
The man that has acted in The Lone Ranger and soon U.N.C.L.E doesn't like superhero films but will take those?...the guys a decent actor but that makes no sense to me how he can do movies like that and not want to be in a superhero film.
Durf - 8/1/2013, 6:02 PM
Well he may not like CBMs, but no one liked Lone Ranger
ManofwooD - 8/1/2013, 6:02 PM
IDK what aspects of Bruce Wayne people see in this douchebag, the Social network is the pinnacle of his acting career.
brazilianbatman - 8/1/2013, 6:02 PM
he doesn't like superhero movies? I guess it makes sense now why he was in Snow White. He is into chick stuffs lol.

good to know he is not a fan of superhero because I really don't want to see him as Batman/Bruce Wayne.
JDUKE25 - 8/1/2013, 6:02 PM
And we're not a big fan of you. Stay away Hammer.
SuperDude001 - 8/1/2013, 6:03 PM
LEVITIKUZ @ Actually yeah he must like them, I forgot about all that!...maybe he's just one of those actors that dislikes interviews and bulls every answer.
ForeverPowerful - 8/1/2013, 6:04 PM
I don't blame him. He's too busy making his career with his AMAZING Lone Ranger film!!!!!

Why again was everyone saying this guy should be Batman? Because he's a dude? He has a deep voice? He was cast as Batman a long time ago already?

Keep him away.
leXheX - 8/1/2013, 6:04 PM
damn I feel sorry for this dude. a while back he was talking about how exiting playing Batman would've been, now it seem like his bad luck with films has really hit him hard. [Frick]ing Johnny Depp, he just ruins everyone's life doesn't he?
SuperHamm - 8/1/2013, 6:04 PM
Good, didn't think he should be Batman anyway. Even more so after Lone Ranger flopped. Now i say go after Joe Manganiello.
brazilianbatman - 8/1/2013, 6:05 PM
Eric Bana or Karl Urban for Batman
RexDartEskimoSpy - 8/1/2013, 6:05 PM
I think if Henry and I did that film and then a superhero film straight after, people might start to wonder about us...


And he's a homophobe. Good to know.
NBAfanaddict - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
Was cast as Batman, praised Marvel, but not isn't a big fan...Methinks something maybe brewin....


Levitikuz: So who's your new Batman?
SnapperCarr - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
THANK THE LORD.
whoa123 - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
After seeing The Lone Ranger, STAY AWAY FROM CBMs
brazilianbatman - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
what did he say about Batman? that he wanted to play hum? I cant remember.
DaVinci31 - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
Hey Armie. . .

SpideyNyC181 - 8/1/2013, 6:06 PM
Armor hammer kinda sucks there are like 20 actors I'd choose over him for batman and I hope he doesn't get a cbm role
Niklander - 8/1/2013, 6:08 PM
There is only one guy I can see as Bats
highflyer - 8/1/2013, 6:08 PM
@Levi I agree. However, I will always maintain that Ryan was made for Deadpool and Deadpool only.
IamBatman - 8/1/2013, 6:08 PM
Good! I don't want him to play Batman
IamBatman - 8/1/2013, 6:09 PM
Karl Urban or Luke Evans
DaVinci31 - 8/1/2013, 6:09 PM
Plus Garrett Hedlund is The Caped Crusader. . .



highflyer - 8/1/2013, 6:09 PM
@Nicklander, me 2.
CaptainObvious - 8/1/2013, 6:10 PM
You know, he is allowed to not like comic book movies.
JatevinM - 8/1/2013, 6:10 PM
I'm so glad that he said he doesn't want it because this guy honestly annoys me.
JDUKE25 - 8/1/2013, 6:12 PM

ForeverPowerful - 8/1/2013, 6:12 PM
The only actor I like for Batman has been the only one rumored by anyone so far: Tyler Hoechlin.

He's not famous, he's apparently a decent actor, and he's got the look.
HugoStrange87 - 8/1/2013, 6:13 PM
Good, I really don't want him. I never really liked him, he seems pompous. Look at the interview of him possibly playing Antman. He seemed like such a d*ck trying to play coy.
IDKwhatToChoose - 8/1/2013, 6:15 PM
Good maybe that will stop all the fancasts of him for EVERY superhero possible.

NEW FANCAST ARMIE HAMMER FOR WONDER WOMAN!!!!
SnapperCarr - 8/1/2013, 6:15 PM
He's only interested in CBMs when he needs to be.
SuperiorMrGod - 8/1/2013, 6:17 PM
I think the real new here is that Levi changed his profile pic.


Oh and [frick] Armie Hammer, John Hamm,Benidict Cumberpatch, hel even Jake Gylenhall would make a better Batman than Armie.
highflyer - 8/1/2013, 6:18 PM
I find his change in attitude strange though...
FordEl - 8/1/2013, 6:18 PM
1.Cast as Batman
2.JLA canceled
3. Praises Marvel
4.Thinks superheroes are vulnerable(obviously doesnt know anything)
5. Then says he doesnt like superhero films
6. Him and Henry in a movie in Uncle as well as him and Superman would be 'weird' (Sounds homophobic)


Good because I dont even like this guy as a person.
SuperiorMrGod - 8/1/2013, 6:19 PM
Just to clarify John Hamm,Benidict Cumberpatch, and Jake Gylenhal would be amazing.
SymbioteJoker - 8/1/2013, 6:19 PM
Off topic but Levi I love your bender gif
mctrinket - 8/1/2013, 6:20 PM
He sucks. No thanks.
