Armie Hammer has posted an eyebrow-raising picture to Instagram. The 6’5” actor shared a pic of himself on a plane headed to London, where Joss Whedon is currently filming additional scenes for the Justice League movie.
Rumors and fan speculation aside, it is in fact not known if Armie Hammer is involved with Justice League, as Hammer recently said he hasn’t been in talks with DC:
“The funny thing is, is nobody has ever come to me an been like… My agent has never called and said, “Armie, Warner Bros, has been talking to me. There’s really interested in you. This whole thing.” Never. In fact, after… there was like a… When the Green Lantern stuff first kind of started, which I think is Geoff Johns fault, because he like followed me on Twitter or something, and everybody was like what does that mean?! So uh… how did it happen, Um, I called my agent, after it had been going on for like a week or two, it had been going on for a little bit, I called my agent, I was like, “Man, have you heard anything from like D.C. or anything?” And he was like, “No”. I was like, “nothing?” He was like, “No”. I was like, “Not one thing?”, and he was like, “No. Why?” I was like, “nothing about… Green Lantern?”, and he was like, “No, nothing”, and I was like, alright. That’s it, that’s the end of it.”
It wouldn’t be the first time an actor has played coy when attempting to hide their secretive role, and fans are hoping he is doing just that. Hammer has been a fan-favorite choice to play Green Lantern, Shazam, or even Nightwing. Though to be fair, is it possible Armie Hammer could be in London for something other than Justice League, as his Cars 3 premiere is coming out soon as well.
Check out the Instagram post below:
Justice League” has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
