Earlier it hit the net that the new Lone Ranger, Armie Hammer, was among Warner Bros. top choice to play Batman in the Justice League movie.
It was also said that Hammer might be playing Batman in only the Justice League universe of movies, meaning another actor would play Batman in a new solo movie.
Our DC Entertainment source who has been providing us with various tidbits of information about the Justice League movie as well as the Man of Steel just informed me that the "Armie Hammer as Batman rumor is as false as hell."
The source goes on to reiterate what we have been told before, that the studio's choice for Batman is Jake Gyllenhaal, and regardless, that it will come down to the director and producers of the Justice League Movie.
The source also says that casting on Justice League won't happen until late 2013.
While it seems to be a matter of "he said she said," our source has given us information about the Green Lantern movie that was true as well as scenes from the new Superman movie, in addition to news that the Man of Steel will spearhead a shared universe leading to Justice League with a Batman 2016 movie that was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.
