Armie Hammer has once again denied rumors about his potential role in the DCEU and ‘Justice League‘. If I had a nickel for every time the actor was rumored or fan-cast as Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern, I would be rich enough to make a Green Lantern film myself and hire Hammer as the lead.
In all seriousness, him being name brought up for the role makes sense; he’s a great choice for it. It wouldn’t be the first time he’s been considered for a superhero movie as well, he was once going to play Batman in the cancelled ‘Justice League Mortal‘ film from director George Millar (Mad Max: Fury Road). Hammer shined in ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E‘, where he starred alongside the Man of Steel himself Henry Cavill.
Now while speaking with ET Canada at the TIFF2017, Hammer shuts down all of the rumors regarding his possible involvement in ‘Justice League‘ as the emerald knight.
- “No…no one’s called me. No one’s called me. No, nothing.”
Watch the interview below:
His response to the rumors indicate he hasn’t even gotten a call from the studio. Of course he could be lying (Jason Momoa denied for years that he was Aquaman), but he seems pretty believable. While there have been a few rumors that he was being considered by Warner Bros. for the role, they haven’t been very credible. They’re usually are mostly from Reddit but Armie himself is guilty of trolling fans a couple of times Twitter. I personally don’t think he’s gotten the role of Hal, but it doesn’t he can’t in the future.
