Some fans even hoped Armie Hammer was going to join the DCEU as Captain Marvel (or even play Hank Pym in Marvel's Ant-Man aĀ while back).
Justice League has now come and gone, and Armie Hammer didn't appear as Green Lantern, and Captain MarvelĀ (Shazam) is being played by Zachary Levi.
Prior to all those films, Armie Hammer was actually cast as Batman prior to Christian Bale in George Miller's defunct Justice League Mortal movie.
So is there a future superhero movie for Armie Hammer?
While the actor doesn't rule a comic book movie completely out, while appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Armie Hammer lets it be known that he doesn't think any of the superhero movies have been all that good.Ā
āIām trying to answer in a way thatās not going to get me into trouble,ā Hammer said and offered he is not signed on to any comic book flicks. āAlright, f-ck it, might as well go for it. I havenāt seen a superhero movie in a long time where I thought, 'f-ck, I wish I was in that.'
"For me thereās not like a huge rush," Hammer continued. "Would I love to own a huge house? Yes, for sure. But at the end of the day, Iām more interested now in my artistic credibility and doing the projects that satiate me as an artist and make me feel like I'm doing what I love...ā
Armie Hammer did admit if the right opportunity did present itself - like a George Miller being on board -Ā that he would take on aĀ superhero gig, but presently it's not in the cards.
āLook if a great director came around and said āI have this ideaāā¦ but at the end of the day, no oneās asked, and Iām not going out of my way to do it," Armie Hammer said.
MTV's Josh Horrowitz, who hosts the podcasts, also suggests that ArmieĀ Hammer dodged a bullet by not being in Justice League.Ā
