Armie Hammer admits that he’s had NO talks to play Green Lantern

April 15th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Sorry guys but Armie Hammer, despite some seriously fun trolling of DC fans, says that he honestly has not had any discussions about playing Green Lantern in the DC Cinematic Universe.

The actor has been playing with fans for weeks, teasing that he may be the new big screen Green Lantern  – heck even Superman actor Henry Cavill was getting in on the fun but now, speaking to Collider, Hammer himself has extinguished the Lantern talk.

“The only talk of me being Green Lantern that I have heard in my life – the ONLY talk – has come from social media,” said the actor, putting to bed any connection between him and Green Lantern.

Do we believe him? Yeah, probably… but we still get the feeling there’s something to all this…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
