Batman's next appearance is to be in the forthcoming 'Justice League' movie, DC Comics' equivalent of superhero supergroup 'The Avengers'.

Now website Moviehole is saying that 'The Social Network' star is in the frame for Batman's role, and not for the first time.

Hammer was cast as Batman in the 2007 production of 'The Justice League of America', which was scrapped as it was just about to start shooting.

Speaking to MTV, Hammer recently said of his brief stint: "I loved it. But I didn’t even get a picture of it."

It's reported that Warner Bros now has Hammer in its sights again, but only for the 'Justice League' project, not a stand-alone Batman film.

It would see Batman alongside other DC Comics heroes including Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash.

Hammer's star is certainly rising, with his forthcoming starring role in Gore Verbinski's 'The Lone Ranger' with Johnny Depp.
