Has Armie Hammer been cast in ‘The Batman’ or another DC Comics movie?

Focus Features

Welcome to the latest edition of Twitter Detective! Twitter activity has proved to mean something in the world of DC Comics movies, so I thought it’d be worth taking a look at the latest development.

Both DC Films co-head Geoff Johns, and star of The Batman, Joe Manganiello, have started following actor Armie Hammer on Twitter this week. Hammer, 30, certainly has the look of a guy who belongs in a superhero movie. Could he have joined the cast of Ben Affleck’s Batman movie, which is expected to start shooting next spring?

Update: And now Armie Hammer is following Geoff Johns back as well.

Obviously this is speculation, but as I mentioned, Twitter activity like this has meant something in the past. Who do you think Armie Hammer could play in The Batman, or perhaps a different movie in the DC Films universe? Let me know in the comments below!

Fun fact: Armie Hammer was cast as Batman in a 2007 Justice League movie that was cancelled due to a writer’s strike. He also starred in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. last year with Superman himself, Henry Cavill.
