Armie Hammer Probably Won't Be New Batman, Because You Know What They Say About Guys Who Do Two Films Together
Though he was years ago attached to play Batman in Warner Bros. previous attempt at a Justice Leauge, Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer now seems surprisingly dismissive about putting on another mask for the Batman vs. Superman movie, telling Metro he doesn't like superhero movies--and that, you know, he doesn't want to come across as the kind of guy who does multiple films with Henry Cavill.
"I'm not actually a big fan of superhero films," he told the paper when asked about the role. "If you have a guy who is supposed to be invulnerable, then what's the point?"
Some may counter that, yeah, no kidding, that's why it's so awesome that Batman is just a guy, but already Hammer has another argument: he's already attached to star along our new Superman in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. "I think if Henry and I did that film and then a superhero film straight after, people might start to wonder about us..."
Like, that a couple fit, good-looking guys alternately strutting around in smart suits and fighting in tight costumes might come across as kind of gay? Of course not, homophobe. Asked if he meant romantically, Hammer replied, "I wish! God, he's dreamy!"
The actor did not clarify what, then, people might start to wonder about them. Probably whether they're part of a secret program to create the Übermensch Vince Vaughn-Owen Wilson.
