Oh boy! Let all the crazy speculation continue to run rapant! As now just a week or so after the first huge rumor broke out about actor Armie Hammer possibly being the next big-screen version of the Green Lantern took the internet by storm. We now have another monster of a rumor on our hands with Mr. Hammer once again.
And hey, don't blame all us hardcore DC Fans either, these rumors are starting because of the people involved with the projects themselves. So cut us some slack! Ok so the new HOT RUMOR this week comes to us from the good folks over at Batman-News along with some other smaller outlets who are reporting that it now seems to be obvious that actor Armie Hammer has a role in Ben Affeck's The Batman, and that we can probably put the Green Lantern rumors to bed.
Following several tweets and Instagram's from Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello, DC Films co-head Geoff Johns, and Armie Hammer, its seems that he is definitely playing someone of importance in The Batman, but who?
Armie Hammer's post was captioned with "Men at Work" and Manganiello's was captioned with "Burning the midnight oil with my man Armie Hammer." The folks over at Batman-News net are saying that they are convinced that Hammer has a role in Ben Affleck's The Batman. With other sites such as CosmicBookNews suggesting he is most likely Nightwing, but could possibly a resurrected Jason Todd aka Red Hood (Which would be freaking awesome).
Following all that, we did some digging around ourselfs talking to a few of our sources and we are now convinced and really hoping as huge DC film fans that Armie is indeed playing the role of Dick Grayson aka original Robin aka all grown up Nightwing. Having Nightwing in The Batman film would make a lot of sense considering Ben Affleck's Batman's age and actor Hammers age, plus of he'll need some help in battling his enemies and trying to take down Manganiello's Deathstroke who is already confirmed for the film.
Pretty cool stuff right? So what do you guys think, is there a chance he is still playing the Green Lantern? Could he really be Nightwing.
