Batman vs. Superman: Armie Hammer on who would win

The man who was almost Batman reveals his thoughts on Batman vs. Superman

After almost appearing as Batman himself, actor Armie Hammer reveals his thoughts on the fight of the century - Batman vs. Superman.

It's a match-up we've wanted to see for a very long time - two of DC's finest heroes pitting their wits against each other on the big screen. But while many Superman fans think this contest is a little one-sided, I have to admit, I'm not so sure. And despite ruling himself out of the upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' movie, it seems that Armie Hammer agrees with me.

In an interview with Digital Spy while promoting 'The Lone Ranger', actor Armie Hammer reveals who he thinks would win… and you can't fault his logic.

"I'm slightly biased," he explained. "But I remember from a comic I read that Batman wins."

Having almost appeared as Batman in George Miller's cancelled 'Justice League' movie, it's easy to see why Armie Hammer would put his money on the Caped Crusader. But it looks as though he knows his stuff when it comes to the comic-books…

"He's got more technology and he actually has a piece of Kryptonite that Superman actually gave him to beat him, so… I would probably have to go with Batman."

Of course, we will eventually get to see the result of this incredible match-up when Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' hits the theatres in 2015. But for now, it looks as though all we can do is speculate.

In the meantime, Armie Hammer may have ruled himself out of the running, but there are plenty of other names apparently being considered for the role of Batman… and we could see Henry Cavill facing the might of Josh Brolin, Joe Manganiello or even Richard Armitage as the all-new Dark Knight.

Whether they'll be able to best the might of Superman remains to be seen. But one thing's for certain - it's the superhero movie we've all been waiting for.

Who do you think would win? Does Batman's Kryptonite ring give him a distinct advantage? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
