Should Armie Hammer replace Ben Affleck as Batman?
Fans have been waiting a long time for Armie Hammer to take on the role of Batman. According to Matt McGloin for Cosmic Book News:
Following the release date and information made known for the Matt Reeves Batman movie, a rumor hit the net offering that Armie Hammer was WB's top choice to play the younger Bruce Wayne.
Hammer was actually up to play Batman in the 2008 defunct George Miller Justice League Mortal movie, but the film was canceled. The 32-year-old actor stands at an imposing 6' 5" and definitely has the look, so by all accounts he would make a great Dark Knight.
BossLogic has already imagined Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader. Comic Book mentioned that some DCEU fans may not be for Pattinson taking on the role of Batsy, especially because he famous for the "Twilight" franchise, but Kofi Outlaw explained why he's qualified:
However, it's important to note that before the Twilight infamy, Pattinson was looked at as one of the most promising young talents of his generation. Since Twilight, Pattinson has almost pathologically avoided the kind of easy leading man fame he could've easily reaped from Twilight, instead sticking to more art house projects like Cosmopolis, The Lost City of Z, or more recently Damsel. He was both hated and loved for his brooding bad boy persona in Twilight - which could easily be converted into the portrait of a young, troubled Bruce Wayne. Picking Pattinson would definitely fulfill DC and Warner Bros. rumored wish for a "familiar face" to take over the role - and it would most certainly generate the necessarily headlines.
