Armie Hammer was going to be Batman! Find out what went wrong here
We all know that DC are desperate to grab a handful of superhero ensemble cash by delivering the Justice League movie. Marvel's The Avengers made so much money, Joss Whedon could purchase some kind of failed state if he really wanted to, and that's something DC wants to get in on.
It turns out this isn't the first attempt to bring Superman, Batman and co together on the big screen. The Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer was set to play Bruce Wayne/Batman in Warner Bros.' Justice League: Mortal, a superhero ensemble that was eventually canned mere weeks before going into production. While appearing on The Feed, Armie Hammer goes into some detail as to why the project floundered and what it would have looked like. Check out the interview below:
