Armie Hammer, Batarangs, and a psychiatrist...???

In a more in-depth interview, Armie Hammer talks about Batman, his wonderful toys, and the extreme details George Miller took on constructing his Justice League...



Over at Aint it Cool News there's a great interview with Armie Hammer and a good bit of time is spent talking about his role as Batman in the never produced "Justice League" film. A couple of quotes on this film have been making the rounds as of late, but I thought this one was too good not to share. Also, it seems very close to an article posted a few days earlier on this site that detailed the plot and design of this movie....

ON WETA AND THEIR BATARANGS:

"Those guys are amazing. Some of the most ingenious special effects house guys I’ve ever seen in my life. I wore the full functioning Bat Suit. The batarangs were all titanium spring-loaded, they all worked…

ON THE WAY MILLER HANDLED THE CAST AS A TEAM:

"We had psychiatrists with us in our rehearsal process to be like “Why this?” He was like “Well you see, with a delusional character like this, like the Batman, who thinks in this such a way, like a paranoid schizophrenic like this, this would be the motivating factor.” You bring so much more to these characters, because it’s not just “Well in this frame you are going to jump on top of this car and you are going to throw your Batarang.” It’s like “Why is everyone doing what they are doing, but in George Miller’s true style.” He was going so in-depth in this.We had a brain surgeon, a psychiatrist, a Joseph Campbell expert, and all of these people in every single table meeting we had for a month and a half and then all of the characters were also training as their characters, so The Flash, Adam Brody, was training as The Flash with rubber bands, so he’d be fast and twitchy. Aquaman, Santiago Cabrera, was swimming a lot and Miller would send him to go swim with Dolphins in Northern California for hours so he would be used to being around sea creatures. Batman, being the only human of the Justice League and having to really prove himself there, he had to be the consummate martial artist, as well as the ultimate detective, so he was playing psychological games with all of us.He would leave me out of things, like intentionally, but I wouldn’t know this until months later when I would just get the feeling of like “What is going on? Why is everybody?” Because he wanted me to constantly be getting into that paranoid mind frame of The Batman."

I know that this film had it's detractors but I for one think it could have turned out nicely. Once again, I believe that the person who posted the plot summary and costume descriptions was on to something. What say you?
