Armie Hammer was supposed to be a big time movie star by now. Only The Lone Ranger didn’t deliver. But, you know, that was the critics’ fault. Blame them. If the critics didn’t take a dump on the movie, would Armie Hammer have had a shot at Batman? According to Sarah, he was actually supposed to be Batman once a few years ago for a project that fell apart. Let’s say The Lone Ranger delivered, making Hammer a box office equal to Henry Cavill. Both young, both “strapping”, could that have affected the tone of the reboot? There. That should make you feel better about Ben Affleck, non?

Hammer arrived at LAX with his wife yesterday from London.
