Several years ago, George Miller was set to direct a Justice League film for Warner Bros., titled Justice League Mortal. The project would have starred D. J. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman and Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter.
Despite being this close to getting the cameras rolling, the production ended up not happening and the rest is history. Over the past few years, Hammer has been the one talent to speak most about the experience with the pre-production on Justice League Mortal. In several interviews, he has been vocal about the Bat-Suit he would have worn and much more.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant while promoting Cars 3, Hammer chatted once again about the costume that his Batman would have worn. According to the actor, the suit had a very exoskeleton feeling to it.
“Oh yeah, for sure. I put on the whole suit. Weta made our suit. It was all functioning. It had like carbon fiber, and it had like pistons and gears that would function. It was amazing! It was like a exoskeleton suit.”
While we have heard several descriptions from Hammer about his Batman costume in the past, the public has yet to see what it would have looked like. However, it appears that there is photographic evidence of the suit according to Hammer.
“It was really awesome. Uh… I don’t know if I was supposed to say all that. But anyway… By the way, who was I talking to… I think Quint, from Ain’t It Cool News. He’s got pictures.”
Even though Justice League Mortal didn’t end up happening, there have been rumblings about Hammer possibly joining the DC Extended Universe. While Hammer won’t get to wear a Bat-Suit, maybe he will be another shot at suiting up as a different DC Comics hero in the near future.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set to hit theaters on Friday, November 17.

7 Essential Nightwing Stories For New Fans
Nightwing is easily one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC Universe (maybe even just in general) and he’s finally gearing up to hit the big screen. Dick Grayson is one of DC’s oldest characters, and as a result he has gone through major changes. The character started as the first ever Robin and has since developed his own heroic mantle as well as temporarily becoming Batman when Bruce isn’t available. He’s one of the few characters in comics audiences have seen grown up and change over time and that has led to a devoted fan-base who wants to protect the character.
He’s such a fan-favorite that his planned death in the 2005 event Infinite Crisis was scrapped out of fear of angry reactions. Nightwing might have the same skills as Batman, but his optimism and social abilities make him a positive character that other superheroes come to in times of crisis. So if you don’t know too much about the friendliest guy in the DC Universe, just pick up one of these books and dive in!
