Armie Hammer was once set to play Batman in George Miller’s Justice League Mortal, but the film would later cancelled. Not much is known about the film, but a few gems have been released from the production in the past few years. Some include a sculpt of the Martian Manhunter and an of the films Wonder Woman in costume.
Armie Hammer Hammer has been apart of the DC rumor Universe for the past year, with close ties to him being cast as Green Lantern. The actor certainly doesn’t shy away from talking DC Film’s rumors about himself, but now he’s speaking out on his factual experience as Batman during the production of Justice League Mortal. While at the IMDb Studio at Sundance, Hammer discussed his experience on the production of Justice League Mortal and he definitely stole a script.
“But yeah it was amazing we were down in Australia for like a month or two months doing shoots, doing rehearsals in the suits, all the characters in their suits, and then we get a call one day from the producers saying we need everyone to come in and bring all of your materials, bring your scripts, bring your notes, bring everything, and we were like ‘ok, ok’ and we show up. They had big bins and they were like ‘Put it all in here’ and I was like ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, sure, sure.’ I quickly snuck a CD out of my computer put it in my back pocket turned it all in and I managed to basically steal a script but other than that I had nothing to show for it. I’m sure there’s pictures floating around somewhere with all of us in our costumes but yeah you know the tax budget all kinda went away in Australia and then the government had a huge reform and they sent us home.”
Armie Hammer also talked about his Batman suit, which he states there are pictures of him in it floating around.
“Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, they built a whole functioning suit that had hydraulics and worked and had microphones all through the suit so I could hear everything happening around me, 100 percent function because we had $300 million to do it, kinda like the budget we had on the movie”
