What does a Green Lantern do on his or her day off?

What Does a Green Lantern Do on Their Days Off?

Have you ever wondered what superheroes do when they’re not fighting crime or saving the universe? It’s not something that gets covered in comic book stories and movies very often, because all the emphasis is on the protagonist’s battles with evil and his or her internal struggles with their own personal demons. Do they even have time for a day off here and there? Of course, reading about the day Wonder Woman read a great book, or watching a Green Lantern cataloguing his stamp collection wouldn’t make the most riveting story, but surely there must be more to their lives than the unending stress of getting Earth out of yet another tricky situation that spells doom for the human race?

They must have other things to do, surely?

If you’re thinking that superheroes obviously must do other things in their spare time, see if you can name any. Have a search on Google and discover the almost complete lack of any information on how the saviors of the human race kick back and relax. In the Lego movie, Justice League vs the Bizarro League, the Flash does ask for some ideas for things to do because he’s bored, and has a go at hobbies like ice sculpture and North American bird calls, but then these only take him seconds to master and he doesn’t seem able to slow down and stop moving at the speed of light!

Green Lantern could be a secret Pokémon addict

Given that there are a great many different Green Lanterns in the universe stretching back a fair way into history, it could be argued that it’s perfectly possible that one of them may have got hooked on Japanese pocket monsters, but there’s no evidence that any of the human lanterns ever have. In asking a question like “What does a Green Lantern do on his days off?“, you immediately hit a problem because unlike Superman or Batman, Green Lantern is a title held by a series of different people. These lanterns have all had their own unique personalities, so obviously there’s no simple answer. But if you know your lanterns, you could make a pretty educated guess:

* Hal Jordan: Being the definitive hero type, Hal would probably be happiest using his leadership skills to crack the fiendishly cunning challenge of the Escape Room St Louis. With the kind of life he’s had to lead, giving his brain a rest is likely to be an alien concept, and figuring out a mystery puzzle might be just the kind of challenge he would consider to be a relaxing diversion.

* Guy Gardner: Although his persona has shifted a few times over the years, Guy has always had an impressive ego, so a show-off sport like snowboarding could be right up his street. Showing off his skills on the half-pipe with a few ollies and a poptart would suit his style to a tee.

If you know anything about the hobbies and pastimes of any of the Green Lanterns, spread the word – there are a lot of interested fans out there waiting to hear more!

REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #42

download

Duality is one of the greatest aspects or humanoid life. No one is born good or evil, we all have the capacity for both. Even the most stoic of heroes can succumb to darkness that lies inside. I mean look no further than Hal Jordan himself. Sure that event is not long canon (I don’t think it is?)but fans will never forget Jordan’s trip to the dark side. Perhaps another Lantern is fated to walk that very same path. Warning the following comic contain spoilers. So be sure to read your comic before continuing on. You have been warned.

Who will play Hal Jordan?

Speculation continues to rage across forums and social media as to which Hollywood star will play Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. It is slated for 2020 and focuses on the Green Lanterns of Earth – Jordan, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart and Guy Gardner – as they battle the Sinestro Corps and their yellow power rings. The Jordan role will be central to the story and several leading lights are in the running to land this exciting part. Here are the top contenders:

Tom Cruise

The big rumor this month is that studio execs are trying to convince Oscar-winning filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie to direct this movie. The last Green Lantern film did not the commercial success they hoped for, so they are taking no chances with the reboot and they are hell-bent on securing the best talent available. McQuarrie fits the bill, as he has made a success of various Mission: Impossible and Jack Reacher blockbusters. If the studio bosses convince him to sign on the dotted line it could provide an added and most welcome bonus: Tom Cruise. The superstar action man has worked with McQuarrie on a range of films, including Valkyrie as well as Mission: Impossible and Jack Reacher instalments, so they clearly respect one another and enjoy working together. Cruise has played all manner of high-profile roles over the years, but he has never been a superhero, and Green Lantern Corps could allow him to scratch that itch.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Gyllenhaal’s star continues to rise as he stars in big-money blockbusters and quirky, critically acclaimed movies. When high-profile roles like Hal Jordan or Batman are up for grabs, his name is typically near the top of the list with bookmakers, so you will see it if you check Sportsbetting.ag for odds on favorites. Several sources with inside information on the movie say Gyllenhaal is on the shortlist of candidates, and he certainly has the star quality and acting skills to pull if off with aplomb.

Ryan Reynolds

Could Reynolds be tempted back to reprise the role of Jordan that he played in 2011? Stranger things have happened. He was burned by the failure of the 2011 movie and he has since gone on to enjoy greater acclaim in the Deadpool franchise, but he could be intrigued by the possibility of making a strong Green Lantern movie as a cathartic exercise. He said recently: “Deadpool always knew what it was. With Green Lantern, I don’t think anyone ever figured out exactly what it was. That isn’t to say the hundreds of men and women didn’t work their fingers to the bone to make it as good as possible. It also fell victim to the process in Hollywood, which is like poster first, release date second, script last. At the time, it was a huge opportunity for me so I was excited to try and take part in it.” That is not exactly a promising indictment, but never say never.

Bradley Cooper

Cooper is a four-time Oscar nominee so he would bring a huge dose of credibility to the role, and he also has blockbuster pedigree. Aside from voicing Rocket Racoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, he has never starred in a superhero movie. He could be swayed by a cracking script and the chance to boost his profile further, as there is a chance that a new superhero universe will be spawned if Green Lantern Corps takes off, while Green Lantern could also cross over into Justice League. There are other leading candidates, including Armie Hammer and Joel McHale, but Cooper stands out as a bigger name.
