Ahman Green will have to settle for the title of Green Bay Packers all-time leading rusher now that Thug #2 in Thursday night’s premiere of the long-anticipated blockbuster “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is on hold.
Green, a Batman fanatic who played an extra in the movie, didn’t make the feature film, but his scene will be included in a future director’s cut DVD, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Despite not quite making it to the big screen, Green thoroughly enjoyed spending three days in Detroit for filming in August 2014, calling it one of the best experiences of his life.
“Next to getting married and having kids, it was right up there. I’m big into Batman. I’m big into comic books. I play video games and all that. I’m a movie guy, too, so watching all that and now getting to be on set behind a big action movie and see how everything works when a director directs …”
Green, who finished a 12-year NFL career in 2009, is friends with “Batman v Superman” director and Packers fan Zack Snyder, and preparation for his role was somewhat less than grueling.
“There was no preparation. The only thing I kind of did was let my beard grow out a little bit so I looked a little rough. Just show up on time and be ready to go.”
