Armie Hammer Says No Green Lantern & Justice League (Video)
ET Canada caught up with the fan-favorite actor to play Hal Jordan Green Lantern at the recent Toronto International Film Festival and asked Armie Hammer about the Justice League rumors.
"No. No one's called me," Armie Hammer said shaking his head. "No one's called me."
Armie Hammer was also asked if he heard anything, to which he replied. "No. Nothing."
Armie Hammer was first speculated to be playing Green Lantern as a result of social media when Hammer and Geoff Johns followed each other on Twitter. At one time it seemed as if DCEU co-runner Geoff Johns was following people that were getting cast in the movies. Armie Hammer also was featured in The Man From UNCLE which starred Superman Henry Cavill leading to speculation they might be paird in the DCEU again.
If not Green Lantern, fans are also hoping for Armie Hammer to play Captain Marvel in the Shazam movie.
A Nightwing movie is in development, how about Armie Hammer as Dick Grayson, or for that matter Red Hodd Jason Todd?
Justice League has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder, with the story by Chris Terrio and Zack Snyder, the screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
