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.
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.
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.
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.
I did go visit the set, though. Not with Edgar.
Just by myself.
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!
