ARMIE HAMMER NOW “ON WARNER BROTHERS RADAR” TO PLAY BATMAN IN ‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’ MOVIE
I don’t usually like to toot my own horn, but in this case - beep beep! About a month ago, I wrote a feature detailing my top five candidates to play Batman in the Justice League film. My top choice was Armie Hammer, the young, lantern-jawed star of The Social Network, Mirror Mirror, and the upcoming Lone Ranger film by Gore Verbinski.
Even though Hammer was already cast as Batman once before – in Mad Max director George Miller’s shelved Justice League Mortal film - many of you called me crazy for the pick, others made fun of Armie’s name, and some of you even said mean things about my Mother. But, it appears that my judgment may be vindicated, as this report from Moviehole suggests:
Ha! See! You mocked and ridiculed me for selecting Hammer — you persecuted me for my belief that he should don the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight, but now “a very good source” has backed up my pick! I bet you feel pretty foolish now, don’t you?
