Don't start fitting Armie Hammer for a cape just yet.

After rumors floated that the "Call Me By Your Name" and "On the Basis of Sex" actor was in final talks to star in "The Batman" for director Matt Reeves, Hammer himself denied those reports.

"No one who can actually give me the job has asked me if I’m interested," he told Yahoo! UK.

"I don’t even know if they’re done – I think they’re still working on a script. I don’t think that they’re close to production but I can conclusively tell you that no one has checked my availability, which is a bummer.”

Ben Affleck, who played Gotham City's Caped Crusader in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League," recently confirmed he had stepped down from the role.

Warner Bros. has set a release date of June 25, 2021, but little is known about Reeves' plans for the next Bruce Wayne. He is definitely not adapting Frank Miller's comic "Batman: Year One," though he reportedly is looking for a younger actor to play the character.
