There’s A New Batman In Town

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Hammer and Bale

If they ever get around to making the Justice League movie, Armie Hammer is set to take on the role of Batman:

Watch out, Christian Bale—there’s a new Batman coming to town!

His name is Armie Hammer, an unknown actor handpicked by Mad Max and Happy Feet director George Miller to play Bruce Wayne and his Caped Crusader alter ego in the upcoming superhero-filled Justice League Mortal.

Hammer insists he has not intention of stirring up a battle of the Batmans. “That guy’s got his s–t down,” Hammer says of Bale.

Even so, Hammer does point out that there’s at least one big difference between the two. “My codpiece is bigger,” he said with a laugh the other day from Vancouver, where he’s shooting the CW’s The Reaper (he plays the son of the devil).

While there have been reports that the Justice League flick has been shelved because of too many setbacks (including the writers’ strike), Hammer says he hopes to see it get made…

They were supposed to shoot in Australia, where Hammer and his castmates suffered through several months of physical training.

“I would spend hours training with actual guns to prepare me for this stuff,” Hammer said. “It was very intense. Our workout regimens were so rigorous that most of us would vomit.”

He added, “We weren’t trying to get ourselves aesthetically good looking. We were trying to get ready for the demands of shooting.”

Not that the 22-year-old great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer has anything to worry about in the looks department. At 6’5″ with a smile and hulking body to match, he has movie star written all over him.

He’s already been fitted for the superhero costume, which he says features functioning equipment, including trademark Batman weapons like spring-loaded titanium Bat-erangs. “I was looking down, and I was thinking, This is the best,” Hammer said of the first time he put on the entire ensemble. “Then I stood up, and they turned me around, and I faced a mirror—there was Batman. But then it hit me like a ton of bricks—it’s not just Batman, it’s me!”

Even as the Clone Wars are about to reach an explosive climax, no one knows if victory will favor the Grand Army of the Republic or the Separatists.

    Superman Returns Flying

    The new Superman could commence shooting next summer. Warner Bros. is considering Mark Millar (“Fantastic Four,” “The Ultimates,” “The Authority,” “Wanted,” “Kick-Ass”) to script the blockbuster:

    “I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. One to be released each year.” [Mark] Millar said.

    Millar says there’s nothing firm yet, but he hopes to get word over the next few weeks. If everything goes perfectly, they’ll be shooting next summer.
