Armie Hammer Quells The “Lantern” Talk

After an enjoyable trolling of fans, actor Armie Hammer has stepped back from the online talk of his playing Green Lantern.

Speaking with Collider at the “Free Fire” junket, Hammer admits all the chatter on social media has been just that and absolutely nothing more:

“It was fun [trolling] for a while and now I’m convinced that everyone’s gonna turn on me so I’m like ‘Oh s–t, slowly backing away’…I have nothing to confirm nor deny. The only talk of me being Green Lantern that I have heard in my life has only come from social media.”

“Free Fire” hits cinemas next Friday, and Hammer will be seen later in the year in the likely Oscar contender “Call Me By Your Name”.
