Armie Hammer claims he knows nothing about him being in the running to play Green Lantern in a new movie.

It has been reported that the 'Nocturnal Animals' star is among the favourites to play Hal Jordan and his titular alter ego in the DC Comics film 'Green Lantern Corps' along with Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds - who played the character in the 2011 movie.

Despite the speculation, Armie, 30, insists he is in the dark when it comes to the Green Lantern role.

Speaking to website The Wrap at a Sundance Film Festival event, he said: "I saw the reporting too. That's the first I've heard of it."

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films have scheduled the new film for a 2020 release but development is still in the early stages.

Last year, DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns revealed that the 'Green Lantern Corps' cast will appear in the 'Justice League' films.

He said: "We've been to the bottom of the oceans, we've been to ancient Greece mythology, we've been to the past and future Flash, into the digital world with Cyborg, we still got to go to space. So the Green Lanterns and the Green Lantern Corps will be coming to join the 'Justice League' universe."

The Green Lantern Corps is an alien interstellar police force that has existed for three billion years and protects the universe with each member gaining their powers from their individual power ring, a weapon granting the use of incredible abilities determined by the wearer.

That short list gets longer everyday...John Stewart is the concern BECAUSE WE HAVE YET TO SEE HIM. Hal we've seen on the big screen. I think the most important thing you can do is make sure the two work well together and one is not jealousy of the other. Hal and John are equals, while it did not start off that way, they are at this point in the Lantern mythos...
