Armie Hammer On His BATMAN Costume For George Miller's Cancelled JUSTICE LEAGUE
While promoting his upcoming film, The Lone Ranger, Armie Hammer was asked about his Batman costume in George Miller's defunct Justice League film. The actor lights up as he describes how radically different the suit was from previous incarnations.
In the video below, Hit Fix's Drew McWeeny mentions to Armie Hammer that he has seen the concept designs that Weta Workshop created a long time ago for George Miller's motion-capture Justice League. It would've starred Hammer as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") as the Barry Allen/The Flash, Common ("Hell on Wheels") as the John Stewart/Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") as The Martian Manhunter, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, and Santiago Cabrera ("Merlin") as Aquaman. The movie fell apart when the estimated budget soared upwards of $300 million. As far as I know, none of the designs from Weta have ever surfaced online, but I'm sure down the road it will.
