Long before the era of Zack Snyder and Batfleck, another Justice League movie almost made it in front of the cameras — before it flamed out spectacularly in preproduction.
First The Lone Ranger's producer called out the film's critics. Now it's the stars' turn.
Looks like the rumors of who's playing Ant-Man were wrong.
Is The Lone Ranger's Armie Hammer set to play the titular Marvel superhero in the Edgar Wright directed Ant-Man?
Next year, Disney's bringing back The Lone Ranger in a Gore Verbinski adaptation that will expose a new generation to the masked man. The film stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network, J. Edgar), who'll play a slightly different version of the character.
Warner Bros. is still moving forward with the Justice League. In order for it to work, they need several key characters to appear, one of them being The Dark Knight himself, Batman. But as we all know, Christian Bale has hung up his cowl, so the studio's busy finding a replacement.
Back in July, a select few got to glimpse the first footage from Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger at San Diego Comic-Con. Now the first trailer for the flick has hit the 'net for all to see ... and the title character's not really around all that much.
As you might remember, there was a brief window back in 2007 when Warner Bros. was gung ho to make a standalone Justice League film, separate from the recently launched Batman Begins and Superman Returns franchises. But the movie soon fell apart, and details about the film have been pretty few and far between—until now.
